You can catch the metro A line from this piazza. There is a drinking fountain conveniently located nearby. Nice place to hang out on the steps and people watch. Many shops and restaurants nearby. Short 10 minute walk to Termini Station. Beautiful fountain in the center of the piazza mainly used as a turnabout for cars.

We really just passed by here to visit the Basilica, nothing special, just a roundabout with a fountain in the middle and a few stalls surrounding it.

Piazza Republica, near Termini, is impressive, any which way you look at it: whether you will admire its beautiful symmetry, or you'll go visit Santa Maria degli agneli or just sit in one of the cafes surrounding it and have a light drink at the end of the day, when the sun goes down and the hundreds of Vespas shuttle...

Gorgeous square that has to be seen and is an essential part of the places to visit in Rome. Very centrally located and walking distance to other main attractions/places of interest

One of the largest piazzas in Rome. Impressive but not as worthy as visit, really, as many of the other piazzas… you might be going by when you go to the train station. Take a look at the fountain of the naiads as you go by.

We visited this site while touring with highschoolers from America. Our tour guide gave good information. The piazza is very interesting and the architecture amazing to be seen in person. It is a noisy area with alot of traffic. It was hectic keeping our group together, but everyone enjoyed the stop on the tour.

This is a very pretty, although can be busy, Piazza. Shops, cafes, and hotels are on this Piazza, and the Fontana deele Naiadi. The key thing for us about this square is that it has the wonderful Santa Maria Degli Angeli, PLEASE go into this beautiful church, it is nothing on the inside that you think it will be. definitley...

Piazza della Republic is a round piazza unfortunately surrounded by a busy roundabout and clogged with traffic and noise. This makes it much less enjoyable to visit compared to more pedestrian friendly piazzas throughout Rome. There are a few interesting things to see in the area, like the Fountain of Naiads in the centre of the piazza. This is a... 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.
