A popular piazza in Rome completed in 1822 that is a good starting point for walking the city. Via del Corso is one of the main streets that head to the piazza at the southern side. There is music and other forms of street entertainers...More
This large square was undergoing restoration at the time of my visit, but it's vastness is obvious. Whilst it lacks some of the beauty of some of it's Roman rivals it is worth a diversion if you are returning on foot from the Vatican or...More
My family was here in October 2018.
I recommend this place to must see. I have a photo taken just right on the Lion statue fountain. A lot of my friends were asking where this photo was? They didn't believe it was in Italy coz...More
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 a 7-8 minute walk from the Spanish Steps and rarely part of a tour of Rome. I love this Piazza with it's fountains and the beautiful twin cathedrals! Left one is Santa Maria in Montesanto, 1662-75, and Santa Maria dei Miracoli, 1675-79....More
The entertainers I saw in the piazza added to the ambience instead of detracting from it. This wide-open area is where the ancient Via Flaminia passed through the northern wall of the city, presenting foreign visitors from the north with their first view of Rome....More
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

Rome only has 3 streets the go any distance in a straight line. All 3 start here at Piazza del Popolo. The Via del Corso is the center one flanked by the other 2. A short walk (everything in Italy is a short walk if...More

Basically a very large square where there are often evening events and buskers. An obelisk from the circus massimo is in the centre. At the top of Corso, the main shopping street. Go due west over the bridge to the Vatican museum and due east to the villa borgese and park. Turn around stop for the 116 and 117 electric buses, which are a must way of getting around through the narrow street. A great centre for someone who likes to walk.
