I went here twice and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had a picnic lunch on a bench while watching people and listening to music from street performers. Unlike Piazza Navona, there are no restaurants circling the square and people can actually move around with ease. One...More

A lot of hidden gems in this region. Found great food and it's a great place to walk around. You'll probably spend about 45 minutes to an hour on average. My favorite thing about this place? The guy who blows bubbles!

Piazza del Popolo is a fantastic square in the heart of the shopping district. Be sure to climb the stairs and hill to get a fabulous view of Rome from the “Terazza del Pincio” high above in the park.

Once the entrance to the eternal city. It was very well planned. From the north on Popolu Arch, the huge square is inside the wall of Aurelius. At the center is probably the most ancient obelisk, an Egyptian masterpiece from the time of Rameses, brought...More

Most of the tours start around Colosseo. You can reach Termini metro station by express, regional train or bus from airport. Booking around Termini metro station would be sensible.
