Wonderful surroundings at this point, this led us to a fantastic Castle, which was just beautiful in the dark as it lit up. Highly commendable and so close to the Roman and Imperial Fora'. Watch out when crossing the road though!!!

This piazza is an idea place to take some awesome photos in Rome. The square is adored with a monument on either side of which two flames are blowing. The monument from afar looks incredibly beautiful. If you intend to get closer to the monument, make sure you go there before 5 pm as the guards begin leading people down... More

Rome is full of Piazza's and I highly recommend getting a guided tour! The history is so rich and a well informed tour guide can give you a completely different view on what you are seeing by simply telling stories.

While the Vittorio Emmanuele II monument that dominates this square is brilliant (see separate review), the Piazza itself - made up of the largest traffic roundabout in Rome - is best avoided, with vehicles running all over the place and understandably unhappy Roman drivers.

The Square is best not appreciated on a 64 bus when you are jostled and hemmed in nor in the middle of a hot sunny day when it is crowded with visitors trying to squeeze through on narrow pavemebnts or find a way across to the other side by foot. Probably best seen at night when the Victor Emmanuel monument... More

Architecturally beautiful and impressive square which die to the paleness of the shine feels very light and airy and clean. Lovely square to stroll around and then visit the victorious emmaulle monument. Very exposed square so if spending a Lot of time here in the sun take necessary precautions to avoid excess heat exposure. Very pretty area.

There are many different Piazza's around Rome and it will take a few days to find them all and enjoy. We had 4 days to walk Rome use the bus and get to places we wanted to see. Each is unique - many have the obelisks as well. Enjoy

This piazza is a great place to visit and very central in Rome. Distinctive looking buildings around.

This piazza is on the line with the Piazza del Popolo on the north, going along the very important commercial street Via del Corso and generally is considered as the central hub of Rome. Here several thoroughfares intersect, as Via dei Fori Imperiali and Via del Corso. We saw this Piazza from the car on our way to another part... More

The wife and I happened to walk past it to go to the colosseum, wasn't on our radar of todo but glad we did. Stunning building and statues with the grandness of the building really awe inducing. We didn't go inside, just took lots of photos outside. Tip: it's probably easier to enjoy the building from one of the islands... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
