Piazza della Bocca della Verita, Rome

(3/5 based on 650 reviews on the web)
Piazza della Bocca della Verita houses one of Rome’s most popular curiosities, which rests inside the portico of the beautiful medieval church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin. The Bocca della Verità is the carved marble image of a man’s face and open mouth, which perhaps dates from the first century. According to legend, those who tell a lie while placing their hands inside the mouth will have them bitten off. Inside the square you'll also spot the Arcus Argentariorum, the Arch of Janus, the Temple of Hercules Victor, and the Temple of Portunus. Add Piazza della Bocca della Verita and other attractions to your Rome trip itinerary using our Rome vacation route planner.
