Maybe in another city it can be rated higher, but except for the nice basilica it is just a nice public space, with no particular interesting points. For Rome, average at best.

It was beautiful to see the buildings tower around us. We had a drink in a bar close by, but it was very expensive.

Just a block away from the Termini station and with the Nation Museum on one side. This square has a beautiful fountain in the centre. Plenty of street vendors, taxi stand and food stalls. A main hub for the buses is at the Termini. The Square is very pretty in the evening when it is all lit up.

Repubblica is close to the hotel we stayed in (Aberdeen, on Via Firenze). It is a huge roundabout type piazza, bordered by shops and a hotel on one side and the National Museum on the other. You can access the Metro stop from here via a flight of stairs. Note that there are tons of street vendors in this area... More

The large circular fountain basin forms a roundabout at the top of the Via Nazionale. It's a fine piece of Post Unification planning. Depending where you stand at different times of day the sunlight magically catches the fountain sprays. If you brave the traffic and dash across the cobbles you can sit on the fountain's rim. On the west side... More

Not a whole lot to see here except for a Hotel, restaurants, and a market. Armed security all over the place. Must revisit. I think they were keeping the area clear for VIP's.

Honestly, I was a litte dissapointed, I imagined the place to be more lively, with cafes and restaurants. The view is nice, the fountain beautiful and for sure you can make nice photos there. But you can just stand there, make a photo and go.
