Top ways to experience Piazza San Bernardo and similar attractions

The area
Neighborhood: Esquilino
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.

Piazza San Bernardo is small, but it is home to magnificent Chiesa Santa Maria della Vittoria with Bernini's masterpiece, Ecstasy of Saint Teresa, and two other interesting curches, Abbazia di San Bernardo Alle Terme di Diocleziano and Chiesa di Santa Susana. The Moses Fountain is also quite notable.

On Via XX Settembre, before Santa Susana street is located this square-Piazza San Bernardo. There are few churches around and the fountain of Moses. Worth going there.

That is dominated by the roads the converge on to it. However, its surrounds are of note, with the Fountain of Moses, and the church Santa Maria della Vittoria, for lovers of the Dan Brown novels you can see Bernini's "Ecstasy of Teresa" depicted in Angels and Demons, making the area/square quite popular with tourists.

First thing you notice is the fountsin of Moses with its four lions. To the left is the important S.Maria Della Victoria a must see with Bernini statue. Then there is Santa Susana and lastly San Bernardo alle Terme. Try to see all three but Santa Maria is a must

Nice location that, if you're walking around, you'll be sure to pass through. It's not somewhere specific to head to though.

Piazza San Bernardo is a busy small piazza with the prominent structure at one side standing as marker, the fountain of Moses.

In this place is where three churches stand around the piazza. It forms the junction of three Rione or districts of Rome, and each of the three churches stands in a different one. Santa Susanna is in Rioni Trevi, San Bernardo alle Terme is in Rioni Castro Pretorio, and S Maria della Vittoria is in Rioni Sallustiano. All of these churches have a distinct characteristic and charm.

Since we were staying in via Settembre we had to cross this square every time we went to or came back from Piazza Venezia. There is nothing special about the square. The church, which was closed, is the centre piece of the piazza. Lot of traffic and not adequate place to rest and admire. Do not go looking for it.

However on the outer sides of this Piazza holds several churches that are definitely should be visited. Such as the Santa Maria della Vittoria which contains the Ecstasy of Saint Teresa.

The piazza itself is nothing special, it is more like a traffic circle than anything else. However off the piazza is the Santa Maria della Vittorio church, which is on the corner with via Vendi Settembre. Across from that is the Fontana dell'Aqua Felice, the three arched fountain also called Moses Fountain, and on the opposing corner is the church of Santa Susanna. As I stated in my review on Santa Maria della Vittorio, make sure you stop in to see Bernini's masterpiece, the Ecstasy of Saint Teresa. So walk up via Vittorio Emanuele Orlando to see these worthwhile attractions, but not for the piazza.
