  • Walking into this place is truly a pleasure. Sure its history is serious: the work of Cardinal Alessandro Farnese, and since 1546, Michelangelo's direction. Also of interest are the Church and the convent of santa Brigida, the Palace of Maadida Roccagiovane and palazzo Mignanelli rooster.

  • Nice small square just to walk around in the evening. Has the French Embassy on one side, a very grand building.
  • Fountain in the piazza Farnese is dominated by the Farnese family, one of the most powerful in Rome. The election as Pope of one of its leaders, Paul III, the family decided to adorn the square with two twin fountains. Took away from what is now Piazza Venezia a Roman Tub survived in the baths of Caracalla. The ornamental pool was not doubt turned into fountain, because of the scarcity of water of which suffered from Rome, and servants for centuries only as "patio" privileged for the vision of the naumachie or other shows. Only in the 17th century the fountain was sprayed by one of Roman aqueducts, the aqueduct of the Emperor Trajan, which covers more than 60 km. In fact, only restoring the aqueducts of ancient Rome, the Popes were able to put in use the spectacular fountains of the Renaissance, including the fountain Farnese
