Very smart square

Although circular, this square is very elegant and is centred on a beautiful fountain. There are various book stalls around the square and there is a handy metro station.

I love this square. It is not as famous as some others but it is one of the best. Go there especially during the evening/night where there are not so many people and all the lights are turned on.

A lovely open space, marked largely by its historical significance. In the summer it is crowded, as is the rest of Rome, but it's pretty and the architecture around the square is pretty. There are places to buy a cool drink and sit down along the edges of the square.

This piazza is nice but it is heavily trafficked so you must be on the lookout for cars of you are on foot. The surrounding buildings are really nice though!

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

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.
