For 30 Euros, the barber cut is not a bad deal. The barber cutting my hair was quite friendly and skilled. We had a fairly basic conversation due to my lack of Italian language skills. I'm pleased with the cut I received and the attention to detail exhibited by the barber during the cut. I also purchased entrance into the... More

In a tiny street off Piazza dell'Orologio, is a slice of heaven. A beautiful, relaxing, quiet spa that makes you feel warm and welcome the minute you enter it. I had a massage there and felt fantastic afterwards. The owner is very kind and he speaks English. I will be back!

I decided to shorten my hair and change barber, and after some research came to Wonderfool with high expectations. While the people at the spa are nice and friendly, the same isn't true of their barber skills. Despite asking for a short cut but not razor-short, I ended up with hair looking like a US marine and a beard shaped... More

The uncertainly that comes with booking spa services is the unknown...for us, we lucked out on the best hidden gem in all of Rome. We called to book massage appointments the same day and the owner, Prospero, was helpful and accommodating. When we arrived, we were shocked at how cool and welcoming the spa was. Tucked off a side street... More

If you are Googling for a nice Spa in Rome, you no doubt will come upon Wonderfool (being a very clever name!). You also may come upon this 2010 Spa review by MIchelle: http://www.spaweekblog.com/2010/11/07/wonderfool-rome-mens-spa/ . But my experience at this clean, attractive Spa in early November, 2012 tells me that some people inadvertently may get the wrong impression from what... More

Got caught in a downpour at the Vatican and found this place listed nearby. I agree with all the other comments so far. Prospero was very welcoming and whilst it is best to book ahead they were able to book me a massage and invited me to chill with a coffee and use the steam room whilst waiting. Underwear/bathers optional... More

I was highly curious about finding this place & what a delight! An impressive and stylish fit-out focused on one thing, luxurious pampering! Integrating a barber, tailor and wellness centre this carefully considered environment provides a truly unique experience in Rome. The dedicated team led by Prospero are clearly passionate about the experience they've created. Highly professional, with an attention... More

Wonderfool Wonderfool is a unique and fascinating establishment in the heart of Rome that provides the modern man with a series of traditional and new grooming services. The location is just perfect—around the corner of Piazza dell’Orologio (between the Bridge of Castel Sant’Angelo and Piazza Navona) yet away from the hustle and bustle in a secret courtyard which anticipates the...

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
