Good Piazza and close to Giolitti!

great piazza but the better places are Novona and the piazza at the Pantheon. However, around the corner from this piazza is Giolitti, which is the famout place for gelato in Rome!

A very short walk from Rome's Central Train & Bus Station. The center of this turnabout has a large beautiful fountain. An ancient, large beautiful church and Roman antiquity surround the circle. . A museum is around the corner. The Basilica St. Mary Major is a few blocks away. Cafe's and restaurants are perfect for people watching & many near... More

I visited this fountain at night. It looked gorgeous. Although the fountain is in between a busy circle but it is surrounded by very wide roads which makes it convenient for tourists to sit around it and click photos. Also, the venue is in vicinity of high end hotels and brand stores. Must visit in evenings. Good part is unlike... More

It's worth taking some time to enjoy the architecture and the fountain in this Piazza. However, when I visited the traffic was busy so watch out. Those mopeds spring up and surprise you. It's a great location to other areas whether walking or catching a connection from Termini Station.

Not the most beautiful piazza in Rome; but, certainly one that is busy with lots of traffic. It is surrounded by imposing 19th century neoclassical colonnades. The fountain when it was unveiled in 1901 caused quite a stir. The nudity of the four water nymphs was considered very provocative – I doubt if anyone even notices this today.

It's in a great location. In the middle of a rather big square. The background makes for great photos. You can visit this and a few more places within a few minutes walk. So you have to stop by and appreciate.

The fountain is very dirty. Rotting food and plastic bottles in the fountain waters. Major hangout are for undesireables who were washing their feet in the water. Boring, no scene or anything here

A surprise and the end of a long stroll through Rome. This wasn't planned but was a very nice place to see

Staying at the Boscolo Exedra Hotel, we had a wonderful view of the Fountain of the Naiads in this Piazza, formerly known as the Piazza dell'Esendra. It is quite a busy area, but got to sit and enjoy the view of the fountain, while having drinks on the front porch of the hotel. I probably wouldn't make a special trip... More

The old Piazza dell'Esedra, its a circular square very close to Termini and where the Via Nazionale starts (one of the main streets of Rome). It has a beautiful fountain in the middle called the "Fountain of the Naiads" that was built by Mario Rutelli. Its a common gathering place for the locals and a fairly modern area as well.

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.
