Via di Ripetta

via di Ripetta


Until the 18th century this street was known as Via Leonina in honour of Pope Leo V who had it built 200 years earlier. It was later called Via Ripetta as it flanks the bank of the Tiber. There are a number of important monuments along the road: the mausoleum of Emperor Augustus, the Ara Pacis and the churches of San Rocco, San Girolamo degli Illirici and Santa Maria Portae Paradisi. It is one of the three streets (with the Via del Corso and the Via del Babuino) that formed a trident shape, a town-planning model conceived in the 16th century.
