an interesting round piazza close to the Termini station

The building are massive, and the piazza style quite attractive. B ut it is noisy with a lot of traffic.

This is a very pretty, although can be busy, Piazza. Shops, cafes, and hotels are on this Piazza, and the Fontana deele Naiadi. The key thing for us about this square is that it has the wonderful Santa Maria Degli Angeli, PLEASE go into this beautiful church, it is nothing on the inside that you think it will be. definitley...

Piazza della Republic is a round piazza unfortunately surrounded by a busy roundabout and clogged with traffic and noise. This makes it much less enjoyable to visit compared to more pedestrian friendly piazzas throughout Rome. There are a few interesting things to see in the area, like the Fountain of Naiads in the centre of the piazza. This is a... More

As stated above, busy, fun, great people watching area surrounded by lots of shopping. My only complaint is all the peddlers that constantly bother you wanting to sell you junk. The group I was with met there early one morning for a trip we scheduled to cinque terre, the piazza was just coming to life and the peddlers weren't there... More

We had a panorama room at the Boscolo hotel with a view over the piazza. With the fountain at night it is a wonderful sight. It is busy and you see tourist buses, taxis and other traffic that fill the piazza. It is close to the Opera theatre and has a cinema adjacent. The Boscolo has an outdoor eatery where... More

If you staying close to the central station you can’t miss this attractive place. The charming fountain in the centre is gorgeous at night when the area is lit up. You have many book sellers, souvenir sellers, and so many small shops around the square for shopping…. One of the beautiful Piazza.

I would not make a special effort just to see this Piazza unless you do it at night and want the picture. We found it useful as a landmark and the location of a metro station. There is also a nice fountain. But, I would rather see it at night and get some good photos.

Take the Metro to REPUBBLICA and walk up into one of the best Piazzas in Rome. Then walk down the Via Nazionale to the Monumento a Vittorio Emanuele II (15 mins stroll) and then on to the Colosseum and Forum (a similar distance) - a wonderful way to spend a day.

Although circular, this square is very elegant and is centred on a beautiful fountain. There are various book stalls around the square and there is a handy metro station.

I love this square. It is not as famous as some others but it is one of the best. Go there especially during the evening/night where there are not so many people and all the lights are turned on.

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.
