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.

Piazza della Repubblica is a beautiful place to meet friends or just to take a bit of respite. The fountain is glorious and very refreshing when you sit by it. The location is rounded and lovely. It just feels good to be there. And you can walk to many places from this spot.

We had our last evening dinner here at one of the restaurants. Service was a little slow but of course this is the norm in Italy. They want you to linger and enjoy the scenery. Lovely place and great shopping just around the corner.

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.

Piazza della Repubblica was within walking distance from our hotel, and we visited several times in our three day Rome stay. This is a beautiful plaza with a wonderful fountain, and near the train station.

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...

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.
