Piazza del Popolo was almost deserted in the rain (good thing!), so I had a perfect chance to appreciate its impressive ensemble. First, I visited two beautiful twin churches, Santa Maria dei Miracoli and Santa Maria in Montesanto. These Baroque churches are small and do not boast opulent decor and yet they are very harmonious and intimate. The rain has stopped and it was perfect time to walk on the Piazza del Popolo and admire two massive fountains, Fontana del Nettuno and Fontana della Dea Roma. The Egyptian Obelisk in the center is another notable monument of Piazza del Popolo. My visit to the Chiesa di Santa Maria del Popolo with stunning Caravaggio’s masterpieces was the highlight of my day.

It's a big Piazza. Italian means " People's Square". You can walk from Spanish Steps, not too far. There are twin churches of Santa Maria dei Miracoli and Santa Maria in Montesanto when you walk in the Piazza.

Not as well known as the other piazza’s in rome, but still a must see piazza. It is quite huge and has fountains each side. Located not to far away from the the river tiber, its also a great place to find your bearings while walking around rome.

Piazza del Popolo is the entrance to one of the most beautiful places in the world, located at the top of a triangle of streets known as the Trident (via del Babuino - via del Corso - via di Ripetta), and forms the greatest access to the heart of Rome. At the center of the square stands the obelisk called "Flaminio", with the fountain of the Lions, which is the base and surrounds the obelisk and consists of four round travertine basins,above which, on truncated pyramids in the shape of steps are four lions of white marble and Egyptian style, from whose mouths the water flows out in a fan shape. It is an iconic landmark and a great place for young tourists to sit and eat ice cream on a nice day. With its churches, its fountains and the great Flaminian Obelisk, this square welcomes thousands of visitors and tourists every day. Point of arrival and departure for visiting the center, Piazza del Popolo is the right place to spend a fun afternoon: the main shopping streets start from this square and, if you take the stairs which are on the left of the piazza, you reach the Pincio Terrace that sits directly above Piazza del Popolo, at the end of Via del Corso. From there you can admire all Rome in its beauty.
