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

Not one of the more renowned and listed Piazzas of Rome. Nonetheless, stunning when arriving unexpectedly in the morning on the way to the Vatican. Beautiful statues and architecture. Must see.

This piazza doesn't have anything special, although Basilica Saint Maria is located in the Piazza which worth visiting. Also the famous restaurant Eataly is located there if you want a taste of Italy for good food to eat or to buy.

This piazza is pretty,but there is too much garbage and some weird smell around it... If that could be taken care of, this place would get a whole new shine.

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.

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.
