The Naiads on the fountain are lovely, and really should be experienced up-close and personal, rather than from within a tour bus. Plus, that gives you a chance to sit and listen to the musical sound of the fountain water, drink in the sites and sounds of Rome, and make a wish on a penny! It's close to Termini and... More

Close to Roma Termini, it is most probably the first Piazza you will see in Rome. Even more, you will probably be not very interested, since it has no character, at least in comparison to the beautiful Piazzas of Rome.

Just a very nice Piazza. Metro station. Taxi stand. One stop away from Termini Station. Convenient to the Opera, National Museum, Saint Maria Vittoria, Santa Maria degli Angeli, and various other churches and attractions. Many places to eat in and around the Piazza. Great people watching spot. Be careful crossing the street in this area. If this review is helpful... More

the first piazza i like in rome when i first visited the city in 2011. Nothing had changed that much from my 2012 2nd visit and just last month. It is very close to termini and Santa MAria degli angeli church. If your hotel is within termini area then you can start your day here. But what i love about... More

It is a bit overrated expecially when compared to other squares such as piazza navona and piazza venezia. Nevertheless thanks to the square we discovered the Santa Maria degli angeli e dei martiri church which is wonderful.

Our hotel was situated close to this lively piazza, and it was great to be there early in the morning when sun was rising and city awakes. Besides normal city activities the tourist were heading to Colosseum and other tourist attraction, shops were opening and everybody is ready for long day. Very nice and comfortable to be a tourist there.... More

Since it's right by the Termini station, you may as well walk through this piazza on your way in/out of town. It's big, and impressive, and an interesting traffic mess to watch (as a pedestrian). The fountain is old, and the statues could use some restoration, but that gave them their charm.

Its beautiful in the heart of Rome. However its really hard to access and the people around keep trying to sell you stuff the whole time.

As we have seen the Places of Republic in other cities in Europe, we also had the strong wish to go to the similar place here in Rome. That is a semi-circular Piazza at the summit of Viminal Hill next to the Termini Station. There is very nice Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri, here in one... More
