  • Only in the evening, I visited the place. It has many young people and the ambience is pleasant. Unfortunately, the large screen behind the columns interfere with very, he hides and destroys the mood with nervous advertising. What a pity.

  • Very cute columns, shame them around is full of drug dealers trying to sell drugs. The closer you can see also the wall of dolls, an attraction dedicated to the fight against feminicide, where you can view pictures of women killed. The whole environment around the columns is a little creepy but I have to say it was a good experience no matter what.

  • Cylinders are lined up in front of the San Lorenzo Maggiore. What's this? But there's feeling and impressive place. Come try.

  • It would be an incredible historical site. Unfortunately it is located in a block where nightlife rules, so it is crowded with drunk youngsters from 6pm to 6am, and then from 6am to 12am it is so dirty with bottles and dried vomit that it is hard to enjoy.
  • Pretty place. Beware of the locals that hang out on the park benches.
  • This place is good for young guys, who wanna have beer and maybe some drug. It's not comfortable for sitting on stone's stairs.
  • Small beautiful place with Greek columns and the team is passing in between. Perfect for sit in. Meeting place for young people in the evening.
  • Very beauty place, which converts into party station while night. Good place if you want to meet new people or just drink something (brought with you) with friends.
