Prati is a historic neighbourhood (rione) of Rome in the centre of the city, bordering with the north of the Vatican State. Its logo is the shape of Hadrian's mausoleum, in a blue color on a silver background. Although it technically belongs to the rione Borgo, the Hadrian's mausoleum (the modern Castel Sant'Angelo) is one of Prati's landmark.
In administrative terms, Prati since 1913 belongs to I Municipio (the City historic Center) while before that year together with the rione of Borgo and the quartieri Trionfale and Della Vittoria (around Piazza Mazzini) was part of the XVII Municipio. A solidly bourgeois district, Prati is one of the wealthiest neighbourhoods in Rome.
Prati is immediately to the north of the historical city centre of the City ("centro storico"), and to the east and northeast of the Vatican.
The busy Via Cola di Rienzo, one of the most famous streets in Rome, is consistently ranked among the most important shopping streets in the city.
