Another impressive landmark in heart of Rome, walking distance from Termini ( central station). Worth the visit.

Nothing special, we made up a walking tour of Rome starting at our apartment and this piazza was our first stop. We were underwhelmed and disappointed. It's a busy place full of cars and buses. Although there is a fountain in the centre and some of the buildings around it are nice I wouldn't advise making an effort to visit... More

This place has been rebuilt a bunch of times. The Bernini fountain in the middle is amazing, like anything else designed by Bernini. This is where Via Nazionale (Rome's version of 5th Avenue in Manhattan) begins. The semi-circular buildings stand in sharp contrast of the usual Roman piazza design. If your hotel is near Termini, you can walk over here.... More

A not too special Piazza, but right in the middle is a splendid fountain, four Nymphs the Nymph of the Lake riding a swam, Nymph of the Rivers on a monster, Nymph of the Ocean riding a horse, Nymph of the underground waters riding a dragon. The center figure represents Mans dominion over Nature. Great to make photos but watch... More

Easy to get to as there is a metro station directly below. The piazza is crescent shaped with impressive buildings on either arm with a fountain in the middle.Opposite is the Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli. It is also a good start of point to walk down the Via Nazionale to the Vittorio Emmanuels monument

This is a great place for shopping. There are some high end shops located in the centre of the piazza with eataly being the one to definitely see. If you're into food, eataly is a shop as well as restaurant worth a visit. There is a beautiful fountain at the centre. Along the side streets you'll find the usual touristy... More

Formerly known (and still commonly called) as the Piazza dell’Esedra, due to the large exedra of the Baths of Diocletian, this is a stern and dignified semicircle of buildings with great arcades that makes it a nice place to stroll around, despite of the traffic around the square.

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.
