In Rome sometimes you are walking around and, between a narrow street or a small square, you find out a part of the history. These 11 collumns standing are great. You have to look for them.

The facade of the temple was transplanted to the front of what used to be a palace at this location and is now a commercial building. When walking by this structure, I was immediately awestruck by the sight of the 11 immense columns. I think the partial erosion of the columns actually adds to their beauty and charm. This structure... More

If you are exploring Rome on foot you will almost certainly pass by within a block of this place - so make sure you stop by and have a look. Huge classic columns reminding you of what an amazing history Rome has. And lots of simple, good value restaurants nearby.

Magnificent of course, but by this stage we had been super-saturated with ancient monuments and columns. Amazing to have such a rich history around you all the time and it's well worth making sure that this is on your way if you are walking through Rome. Many great eateries around here.

It's located on a tiny piazza di Pietra, in fact, it fully constitutes one side of the square. Even if one doesn't know what it is, this building immediately attracts attention. A good place to sit, relax and think of eternity.

I do not know if this can be visited inside, but we spent some time in the piazza, fairly relaxed - not as bad as some of the neighbouring piazze. The columns are impressive. The level of the ground has changed a lot here since the temple was built, I think... that is impressive too.

Staying in Colonna

Neighbourhood Profile
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very centre of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping centre, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
