Every Italian piazza is welcoming and tries to be a living room, even large traffic roundabouts as Piazza Repubblica. The architecture is impressive, with buildings in two quarter circles each side of Via Nazionale, forming a perfect crescent and on the other side the Terme di Diocleziano, the Roman baths, where from nearby Stazione Termini gets its name.

This square is just few steps from Termini station. Here is beautiful Bernini´s fountain, hotel Boscolo Exedra Roma, National Museum of Rome and entrance for baths of Diocletian is just around the corner.

The Piazza della Repubblica is a gem in its own way. It comprises a number of crescentic buildings with a central fountain. Was told that many famous paintings by Michelangelo hung on the walls inside these buildings. As it was late in the evening, I didn't get a chance to enter or view any of the artefacts.

You'll likely pass through the Piazza della Repubblica as you tour around Rome, especially as you leave the Central Termini area. The two large multistory crescent shaped building are especially notable, as is the central fountain and the cobblestone pavers. Pretty place, especially at night with the accent lighting. ...

This is beautiful at night, all lit up. Nice place to sit and people watch. Worth a visit if you have the time.

For millions of visitors Esedra Square has been a place of meeting and relationship. Its preciosity, surrounded by the Terme di Diocleziano and a majestic porch, contains, between others, the gate of one of the magnificent roads of the Eternal City: Via Nazionale. A limitation to the traffic would help to appreciate its beauty.

Monumental buildings surrounding a piazza, some from the Roman Empire, some from 'modern days' – well, a one or two hundred years, maybe, but in Rome, that is like last year. An enormous and very, very beautiful fountain in the middle of the traffic. If it hadn't been for the cars, this would be a very nice place to stay.

This may be the first piazza and fountain you experience in Rome. If you exit Roma Termini and cross the bus lot and walk straight ahead, you will enter Piazza della Repubblica. At first glance you may only think of this as a traffic rotary, but it has more importance than that. It is the start of via Nazionale. And... More

Selected the hotel near this piazza for easy mobility... the piazza has some interesting features like the building which houses some nice cafe and shops.. the other side is being renovated into a designer hotel.. which am sure would enhance the place. You can walk from this point towards other places of interest. The roads and side streets are well... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
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.
