Piazza del Popolo, Rome

(4.3/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
Piazza del Popolo has long served as meeting place for the people of Rome. Begin your tour of the large square with a look at the northern gate's inscription, which reads, "For a happy and blessed entrance." This message was left for Queen Christiana upon her arrival to the city following her conversion to Roman Catholicism. In the center, marvel at the ancient Egyptian obelisk brought to Rome in 10 BCE. Admire the square's almost identical churches and see if you can spot the differences between them.

  • On the second day after having had wind güzergahımızın way we came to the last address on behalf of the Spanish stairs to go we had fixed a route. Obviously such a show de conviction occurred getirmemiştik. In short, 5 to 7 minutes on foot from here Spagna. As this novel's exactly like Piazza Venezia square, Piazza Novano senior challenge. You can feel it when you walk in the square.

  • A lovely place to start your walk down into the historic town from. Lots of things to view and some great little streets to explore near by. Metro brings you out pretty much on the square so easy to get to before a long day of walking round.
  • Great space without being overly crowded. We went on a Saturday at 1 to escape the Vatican crowds and were pleasantly surprised with how much lower key it was. There were fewer street vendors than most other tourist spots which was nice as well.
  • Great place to hang out. Much like everywhere else in Rome, this area is beautiful and great to walk around and explore
  • Nice old historical square with sculptures, fountains and gigantic menhir in front of it. It´s great to cross it when you go to Villa Borghese park that is situated on the hill behind this square.
  • Believe me when I say that you can never get tired of visiting Piazza del Popolo. You can visit it thousands of times and see it again with a different guise. I saw fireworks, live gigs, jugglers, flag throwers... or even normal families enjoying the view while eating an ice-cream. A Rome's symbol, an eternal monument, a simply indescribable beauty!
