- The triangular-shaped South is a broad neighbourhood in the southern area of Rome. A mostly residential area, South is home to Fascism’s experimental “city” EUR - a bustling centre where several of Italy’s important ministries and state-run businesses reside. Since South covers a lot of terrain, there are several micro-neighbourhoods like EUR within its confines and each with a distinct personality. The Basilica of San Paolo fuori delle Mura (one of four important churches) is found in its northern part in an area known as Garbatella/Ostiense. Garbatella/Ostiense is noted for its case populari, an art nouveau social housing campaign.
The area has several important landmarks in addition to EUR and San Paolo. The eastern part of the neighbourhood has the majority of Rome’s catacombs and magnificent imperial tombs on the Via Appia Antica, Rome’s oldest ancient road. The Park of Appia Antica, regional park and reserve, is in this area as well, along with the Park of the Aqueducts, a large expanse where two long-running aqueducts cross paths. The South is the most convenient area if you need easy access to the airport. From here, you can easily reach both Ciampino and Fiumicino airports, likewise the beaches of Ostia, Fregene and Maccarese.
