This plaza is farther to the north in Rome. We came here after going to the Borghese Museum and the park and on our way to the Spanish Steps. The plaza is large so despite huge crowds, it doesn't feel crowded. We slowly marveled at...More

This piazza is larger than most. It was nice to walk around. There are also several churches on the square worth visiting.

We've visited Rome numerous times but a chance meeting with an expatriate Roman couple led us to this fantastic place, which received scant coverage in the guides we've seen. Situated at the northern end of the Corso, beneath the Villa Borghese, it is truly stunning....More
