The square itself I didn’t find that of any beauty. The two fountains sculpted as a giant bathtub are nice. The main building on the square is the French Ambassy which is located in Palazzo Farnese, once a palace for the Farnese family. The place can be visited, but only by submitting on-line.

Writing a review of the Piazza Farnese is like writing a review of any gift of life -- you just have to experience it and love it and nourish the memories you take away. Rome is filled with the gifts of life, but because I stayed with a special friend in a hotel near Piazza Farnese for a week I can only say, gulp, go and enjoy!

Actually I am rather surprised that this bellissima Piazza is numbered #237 right now in TripAdvisor. I think that it is one of the most beatiful Piazzas in Rome. I really like the tubs, I think of Caracalla, in both sides of the Piazza. I find it really surreal! Not very crowded, not very known and yet almost in the heart of the historic center of Rome. I suggest to buy an ice-cream from the nearby amazing gelateria (you will find it in the narrow street that connects this Piazza with Campo dei fori) and enjoy it in Piazza Farnese. Totally recommended!!!

Piazza Farnese is right next to Campo de´ Fiori , and it is a quiet Piazza compared to others like Navona for example.
The main structure of this Piazza is the Palazzo Farnese (French embassy). This Palazzo was once redesigned by important architects like Giacomo della Porta and Michelangelo Buonarroti, and like any of his creations it is worth admiring.
What I found most interesting about Palazzo Farnese´s façade is that you can still see the Papal coat of arms right above the entrance, because Alessandro Farnese was Pope Paul III.
I loved the fountains that are antique bathtubs coming from the Terme di Caracalla.
So, even a quiet Piazza like Piazza Farnese in Rome, is full of history!

Just around the corner from the busy Campo de Fiori, this gem of a piazza facing the beautiful Palazzo Farnese (now the French embassy...argh!) is quiet, elegant, has a great cafe/bar next to a kiosk (with all international newspapers) which turns out to be the perfect place to have your coffee in the morning or better yet, enjoy a negroni or 3 during their aperitivo (and the food spread is pretty good too). Sit, watch real Romans walking too/from work, bumping into friends, taking their dogs at the piazza for a walk. You can keep Vendome, Navona, della Signoria...I will keep Farnese.

The Piazza Farnese, a lovely square with the classic French Embassy on one side, is only a short block from the Campo di Fiori, itself a major tourist destination that is a hubbub at all hours. Yes, far fewer visitors stroll over to the Piazza Farnese, so it’s a great place to watch real life and take a break. You can see real Romans walking to work in this traffic-free zone. Stop for a coffee. Wander down some of the connecting streets. Escape the crowds and get a sense of real Rome. It’s all available around Piazza Farnese, on the other side of the Campo.

A Lovely Square with its two ancient bathtubs turned into fountains and the impressive Palazzo Farnese which now houses the French embassy. It is possible to visit on guided tours ( but you have to book a long time before, and only once a week do they have guided tours in English). Otherwise try to stop by in the evening, when the rooms are lit and you can see some of the fine frescoes at a distance. On the corner there is a nice cafe Vyta where you can enjoy the square

We stumbled across the Piazza on a Sunday walk. It had outdoor markets, music and was buzzing with locals and tourists x we sat outside having lunch and wine and cocktails x recommend it as somewhere different from usual tourist spots

If you want to enjoy a nice glass of wine in a cosy and quiet neighbourhood in the evening, Piazza Farnese is the place to be. Before the attack at Charlie Hebdo, people could sit on benches in front of the French Embassy. It's a pity that this isn't allowed anymore for safetymatters.

The Farnese palace, now housing the French embassy, is a most beautiful facade. Unfortunately, it is not open to visitors, but seeing the tiny piazza is really treat enough. And tell me, what is that gorgeous shade of blue on the doors?
