Via XX Settembre is a 1 kilometre long street connecting Porta Pia to Quattro Fontane in Rome. The street is named after fall of Rome as a Papal state into the newly formed kingdom of Italy back in 20 September 1870. In some ways, this is just a busy street in Rome. However, there are some nice things to see... More

This is a long and interesting street with numerous attractions. There is the dramatic junction of Via Barberini and Via di Santa Susanna, faced with 2 impressive buildings. Tthe monumental Dell'Aqua Felice fountain also known as the Fountain of Moses, dominates its immediate surrounds. It commemorates the end point of the Acqua Felice aqueduct that Pope Sixtus V restored. The... More

Within a few minutes of the Moses Fountain on Via XX Settembre, which is itself worth a look, you'll find a must-see church, Santa Maria Della Vittoria, with the Cornaro Chapel, which holds Bernini's sculptural masterpiece, the Ecstasy of Saint Teresa. Really an emotive, bold artistic installation, so characteristic of the Baroque period. Also nearby is Santa Susanna, another church... More

Any bus you need to get you around would be here. Here you see the everyday people coming to and from work. I prefer this to sightseeing any day.

The Fountain of Moses was designed by Domenico Fontana in 1587. The sculpture was the work of Leonardo Sormani and Prospero Antichi. Beside the statue of Moses there are two panels with sculptures also. Several lion sculptures have water spouts from their mouths that throw water in a fountain.

At a glance, this area would appear dilapidated to some--overrun with parked cars in Piazza Bernardo, busy and unappealing--but for starters, the beautiful Church of Santa Maria della Vittoria houses one of Bernini's finest masterpieces: Saint Teresa in Ecstasy. The Churches of Santa Susanna and San Bernardo al Terme are right there as well, as well as the lovely 16th... More

Not a traditional attraction but it is the street where you find the outstanding, Santa maria della Vittoria, which is the finest Baroque church in Rome and one of the most beautiful of this era in Europe in our opinion. You can also see an interesting fountain and statues across the street at Piazza Bernardo. There are a few more... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
