Capo le Case, Via Sistina, Piazza Barberini, .and other streets on the
Pincio. The most expensive, and often the least sunny, are those in the

streets, apartments may be obtained with a sunny aspect and conveniently
situated with regard to the old part of the town. R.ooms may be procured
in almost every street in the strangers1 quarter, where notices and placards
are frequently observed; but, as they are seldom removed when the rooms
are lei, I he traveller must be prepared for a number of fruitless enquiries.
