  • Surely the Romans in their wanderings have found Egypt particularly interesting, since in Rome there are many obelisks. I read that a part is original, a part are reproductions. In any case they are beautiful and have turned into one of the symbols of the eternal city!

  • Rome has always been a multicultural center and obelisks scattered around it are living proof. Currently 13 remain and to remove that "pagan" imprint a cross has been added to its tip

  • Decorative monuments that are a typical expression of Egyptian art. Rome has several of which were transported to Rome in the imperial period, others are built as imitations. Interestingly, Rome currently has the largest number in the world, exactly 19. There was a twentieth at the entrance to Termini station before the urban transformation at the beginning of the last century. Among the many memories are that of Piazza Navona, that of Piazza della Minerva, of the Lateran, of the Quirinale, of Antinoo al Pincio and Mussolini at the Foro Italico.

  • Quite busy the day we visited. Nice place also surrounded by interesting things to see so worth a visit. Maybe get there early
  • Fun place to take pictures and have a rest. Not far at all from the Trevi Fountain. Great little square.
  • Nice obelisk although the square is closed to the general public by Policemen
  • Lovely government building that you can walk around - no cars! Heavy security
  • Pretty cool. Couldn’t work out the sundial type think on the ground. I gather the building is a parliament of some sort and tours are available. Lots of police when we were there.
