Top ways to experience Via del Pie di Marmo and nearby attractions

The area
Neighborhood: Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.

Rome is so full of history and this little attraction would be easy to miss. Yes, it's only a large sandalled foot from what must have been a very large statue and very little is known about it. But it many ways that's part of it's charm; it's just so random tucked away down a side-street. Fortunately the street is named after it (Via del Pie Marmo) so it's easy to find, take a picture and move on to the next attraction, be it major or somewhat oddball like this one.

Via del Pie di Marmo translates to "Marble Foot Street" -- and that's exactly what you will find on it, a giant, ancient marble foot, clad in a sandal. It's one of the wonderful things about exploring Rome, finding interesting treasures around each corner. The foot is at the corner of Via Santo Stefano del Cacco and Via Piè di Marmo. The area has some good restaurants and is off the beaten tourist path, so it is a nice place to explore in the evening.

Does what it says on the tin! A fabulous foot, but it is still just a statue of a foot! In a nice area with lots of lovely cobbled streets and nice restaurants so not the worst thing going to see it!

I searched this piece out after a few tour books mentioned it and I was thoroughly unimpressed. Yes, it’s a giant leftover piece from a statue, but really, Rome is full of those. I guess the attraction is it’s random location? Anyway, at least it sits in a nice area near some beautiful basilicas so maybe as you walk from one to another you could use the street it’s on and take a look at it. I wouldn’t bother (or recommend) going out of your way to try and find it.

Its a little bit inspiring and amazing that this remains here! Crazy to think how old it is. However, it's' rather anticlimatic ... it's hard to find first of all and when you do its quite small and a little underwhelming. If you're around - its worth the look for the age of it but otherwise, I wouldn't bother making a special trip.

You won’t find this in any tourist brochures and you could easily pass by without noticing it, but the Piè di Marmo is one of the Romans’ favorite monuments. A giant marble foot, now on Via di Santo Stefano del Cacco, started life attached to statue in a 1st century temple dedicated to the Egyptian gods Isis and Serapis. Some 1600 years later, it showed up on the street that now bears its name, Via del Piè di Marmo. It was moved to its current position in 1878 to clear the path for King Vittorio Emanuele II’s funeral procession to the Pantheon.

This is slightly interesting, but not nearly as cool as I thought it would be. Online in different locations it spoke of this giant foot as being the size of a car. It is nowhere near that large. It’s on a small side street and it’s really not worth going out of your way to see it. I think it should be moved to the middle of a piazza somewhere and it would be more of a discussion piece.

In Rome, you know, the streets often have bizarre names.
In the Pigna disttict, and more precisely in via di Santo Stefano del Cacco, where the beautiful and historic church of the same name is located, not far from the Pantheon, there is 'Via del Pie' di marmo', which owes its name to a large marble foot resting on a pedestal.
The foot is what remains of a colossal statue which, almost certainly, comes from a large temple dedicated to two Egyptian gods, Isis and Serapis, which was in this very place, and was known as Iseo Campense.
Suggestive.
iit was recently restored by the FAI (the Italian Trust for the protection of Nation's enviromental and historic heritage) as explained in a metal plate.under the block.
Nice.

Like other reviewers we walked past it...TWICE!
A little underwhelming for quite a small marble foot. There are much bigger feet across Rome (Capitoiline for example).
