The fountain is great and the Basilica S. Maria amazing. You were close to great shopping too and lots of amazing photo opportunities.

The piazza is spacious and lovely with a fountain in the middle. Although, the fountain requires some attention and renovation, the place is still enjoyable. There are also some fancy cafes overlooking the piazza.

This fountain is close to Termini and the Hop On, Hop Off bus terminal we started from. We also stayed just around the corner at Hotel Cortina. It was central for us to travel around central Rome. We just missed out on seeing a heap of Fiat 500's which were of all different colors (my friend managed to see them... More

First afternoon to our 7 day visit to the beautiful capital of Italy, Rome. We arrived at our hotel and freshener up and ready to explore... and find food.

It is a pretty area, but doesn't take long to take it all in. There aren't a ton of things to do in it, but there are a couple snack bars so that you can sit and watch the fountain. There is also a pretty basilica on one side and occasional vendors selling shoes or clothes on the street.

Afternoon when we drove through the area with a guided tour, this place has not made any special impression. But when we got to the area late at night as the hotel was nearby, this place has become a fascinating and romantic touch. Soft lights, almost no flow machines evening cool in the Eternal City gave pleasant moments enjoying the... More

Busy Piazza with a wonderful hotel on the circle. Great place to stop in and take a look around the lobby and relax during walking tours.

Well not as well known as many other plazas in Rome it is still worth a visit. Our hotel was nearby and there is a Metro station here plus several interesting historical sites worth visiting so we passed by here often. The two large buildings on one side define the plaza but there are not many seats to relax on... More
