Via Giulia was designed by Bramante on the orders of Pope Julius II as a premier development project of those times. It is almost a kilometer long (around 3200 feet), and flanked by magnificent palaces and churches dating from the 16th to the 18th Centuries. Check out Palazzo Falconieri, renovated by Borromini, who spent most of his time on the façade. Nowadays, this is a street known best for its refined antique shops, as well as being simply one of the most attractive streets in Rome. It has an arch that was built by Michaelangelo as part of an unfulfilled architectural plan.
