There is a pedestrian crossing on the side with the brick building. Walk over for a close look, the traffic will stop for you. Walk around several times and go back at different times of the day as you will notice different features. On our second week in Rome the pond had several inches of ice on it -the icicles... More

Square locates near the city centre and Termini train station. Symmetric buildings cover square and seem elegant

Uff!!!! what should I say!!!! The dazzling lights and the outstanding view of the building with the fountain in the centre. Just a casual visit would do but there are a lot of shopping outlets and this is very much nearer to Termini, Piazza di spagna, Trevi fountain etc. A Must see piazza.

Found this piazza after leaving the Termini station on the way to somewhere else. The fountain was partly covered on our visit. Not sure why. Nice enough piazza but very busy with traffic.

A pretty impressive piazza with an interesting fountain of the nymphs in the center. This fountain has been renovated in previous years as well as the semi circle of buildings that are at the perimeter of the piazza. Beautiful area day or night. Lot of traffic and street activities. Close to the Termini Rail station.

Piazza della Republica...such a beautiful place close by to Termini station and Piazza Barberini...a big gorgeous fountain in the middle and next to the Diocletian Thermal baths...especially when lit at night, the scenery becomes a lot more beautiful...take the metro to Republica station step out to the Piazza and take some pictures...

If you need a place to kill time for free, then this is a good place for you. I had a free afternoon (waiting for my friend) during my stay in Rome and came across this place. It's a good place to drink coffee and/or (window)shop as there are stores open. However, if you're on a budget, then you can... More

We went there after the visit of the museo nationale and even though it was raining the place was beautiful. Unfortunately a lot of rubbish was lying around in the parks nearby. I assume at night this place is gorgeous.

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
