In front of the piazza look for a coffee shop. Very good. Prices between 3-4 euros. You can relax for a few minutes after walking time.

Grand architecture. Get a selfie or two. Plaza is busy. I did not see people relaxing and taking their time. Tourists pass by for pictures and go. We did the same.

We were walking from Piazza Barberini to a restaurant near Termini and came across this piazza. It looked more modern than other large squares we visited in Rome. In the middle of the piazza stands the eye catching Fontana delle Naiadi (fountain of the Naiads). The big buildings surrounding this square have a few cafes tucked away under the colonnades.

Large square near the station. There is a very nice fountain in the center, here is Diocletian's Terme and a Michelangelo church located in Thermi.

This is a large piazza that has an imposing fountain in the middle of it. it is surrounded by large buildings that date from the 19th century. Also fronting onto this piazza is a Basilica whose front looks very much like a ruin but is very much worth having a look inside. When we visited in Janaury a lot of... More

Having arrived from the airport and settled into our apartment in Via Cesare Balbo (which is superbly located and within 10 to 20 minutes of all the main sights apart from the Vatican), we headed off for our first taste of Rome within a few minutes walk of the apartment to Piazza Della Repubblica. The fountain in the centre of... More

We stumbled upon the piazza on our way to our hotel. It is close to Roma Termini train station. It is a historical beautiful semi-circular piazza with a huge majestic fountain at its center. There was a demonstration going on while we passed, and so the roads were blocked, and you can walk across the piazza which is usually not... More

This is truly a stunning piazza. Here you will find imposing buildings surrounding the square, a large, scary roundabout, the exquisite Fontana delle Naiadi and an almost demolished temple. Take the time and go visit the Baths of Diocletian and the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli. Two of the best known streets in Rome are off this piazza –... More

This square is stunning. It is very close to Termini station and right above Piazza della Repubblica subway stop. Many worthy museums in the vicinity, including the Baths of Diocletian and the near-by Museo Nazionale Romano. I was recently there during a very cold winter day and took this extraordinary photograph in which the water of the beautiful fountain had... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. 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 neighbourhood 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 centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
