If you are not with a guide, be sure to google the history which is fascinating. This is a beautiful place to walk in the evening (or in the day). Ignore the street vendors. Appreciate the beauty and history. Many restaurants here as well.

A nice Piazza , mainly due to it's fountain. Apart from that ,it is a good place to just sit and watch people. The restaurant that we went to was very nice,didn't rip you off and no cover charge and we were outside. Some street vendors around which does spoil the area - one selling balloons which would have interrupted... More

Built on the site of Diocletian's circus, this elliptical space s surrounded by elegant buildings, including one wonderful church, and many cafes, bars, restaurants and gelateria. The space is dominated by three lovely fountains, the central one of which is... More

The huge elliptical-shaped piazza between Campo de Fiori and the Pantheon is ringed by cafes, gelaterias, and artisan shops. You can also appreciate the amazing architecture of the buildings that make up the periphery. Additionally, there are three huge fountains in the square, all of which provide ample seating space to relax. Locals and tourists mix to watch entertainers and... More

This is a beautiful open space with some stunning fountains. A number of street performers add to the atmosphere of the area. Definitely worth a visit.

Surrounded by cafés and decorated by three Baroque fountains, the site is busy with locals as well as tourists. Day and night there are entertainers and crowds to watch. The center fountain Fontana dei Fiumi, designed... More

This is one of my favourite square but I don't like it at moment because it is full of abusive vendors and junk... the police doesnt't care, criminality is allowed in Italy.

A place that must be visited in Rome. We stayed at Rome for 2 days and we visited this piazza twice as it became our favorite place. You will enjoy the huge space and area of the piazza, surrounded by lots of cafe, and many running activities by different people. We were family with small kids and children and all... More
