Landmark Tourist Spot
Piazza del Popolo was once a gateway to Rome for travelers from the north and a nexus of one of the ancient empire's most important roads. Today, you can admire the Neoclassical plaza's 24 m (78.7 ft) Egyptian obelisk, cupolas, and archways. The fountains were designed in the first half of the 19th century. Visit the churches of Santa Maria Montesanto, Santa Maria dei Miracoli, and Santa Maria del Popolo. The latter is built upon Roman Emperor Nero's resting place.

  • Undoubtedly one of the most widespread in Italy, with its architecture freighted with history and culture.
    View original
  • A square that remains in the heart, certainly among the most beautiful in Italy, alive to every hour, surrounded by magnificent Renaissance palaces and crenellated in portici, closed on one side by the beautiful church of San Francesco with the Loggia dei Mercanti. Note the beauty of travertine pavers. Recommended a coffee or aperitif in the historic bar on the corner to enjoy a unique atmosphere.

  • It is worth to reach this charming small town just to fill your eyes the beauty of the buildings that surround the main square. Ascoli is a place not to be missed, the historic small but alive, and cool that you will enjoy strolling near the river is unmatched. Go for it.
