    Obelisk stands on the stairs of the Spain square from discovered from SARS to gardens, on the Pincian Hill area was known as salustiano Obelisk. Was moved here in 1789 by Pope Pius VI. Is not, because it's similar to the contents of the inscription is in the Piazza del Popolo and the Flaminio Obelisk brought from Egypt 1-imitating the Obelisk of the 2nd-century Roman Emperor, made what is believed. Salustiano Obelisk between the Flaminio obelisk and is about a 10-minute walk away. I think good fit because Piazza del Popolo of each Obelisk also Spain square of Rome's most famous attractions.

    It is located in one of the sites with the best views of Rome, presiding over the staircase from the Spain square and Church of the Trinità at his back. It is one of the 13 obelisks of Rome but is part of the 5 belonging to ancient Rome and not to the ancient Egypt, although if it was built in Aswan and moved to Rome, where he copied the hieroglyphics of which is located in the Piazza del Popolo. He was about to be taken to Paris but finally settled on this privileged site and as it was funded by French money that Crown him the Flor de Lys.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
