A neighbourhood at the heart of Roman life

Two distances are enough to give a clear idea of the centrality of the Executive MBA Weekend location to experience Roma in all its dimensions: less than 10-minute walk from the Vatican Museums - among the three most visited museums in the world - and fifteen minutes from one of the main shopping districts of the capital city, via Cola di Rienzo in the famous Prati neighbourhood. If we add to these, only a 15-minute metro ride from the Termini train station and a 30-minute taxi ride from Fiumicino airport, from a logistical, cultural, and recreational point of view, it is easy to say that the location of EMBAWE in Roma is strategic.

The central area (Aurelio neighbourhood), near Vatican City and yet easily accessible from the motorway, a short distance from a large parking structure and served by the metro and various surface transit lines, offers many accommodation options - hotels and B&Bs of all levels - and many food options - from the best traditional Roman cuisine to various ethnic and international choices. And if you are looking for a fun evening out, there are cinemas, theatres, and various other venues.

Rione Prati:

just to the north of the Vatican, one of the most elegant neighbourhoods in the city. Centrally located but insulated from the frenetic tourism, it is famous for its shopping streets, first and foremost via Cola di Rienzo, and for its entertainment venues like Teatro Adriano, the largest multiplex cinema in Roma. Of course, there are also the places of cultural interest, from Castel Sant’Angelo to Ara Pacis Augustae.

 Mercato Trionfale:

just 5 minutes away, Roma’s largest neighbourhood market cannot be missed; a concentration of variety and Roman vitality.
