  • Coming from the North, crossing this door you enter the eternal city A short walk from the metro to Flaminio, adjacent to Piazzale Flaminio, here stands this imposing stone gate that generously reveals the beauties immediately adjacent. Like Alice in Wonderland, coming from the North the cross and you are catapulted in the vast sea of cobblestones to Piazza del Popolo and the extraordinary jewels it contains. And, magic, for this port no need to strive to find the key ...

  • I visited 8/2016. Near Santa Maria del Popolo Church on the Piazza del Popolo. It is also called Flaminio gate. The façade of Santa Maria del Popolo Church next to the slightly more sober, so gate is looks good.

  • 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!
  • One of my favorite spots in Rome to just walk around. Excellent location if you have smaller children who could use some time to just run around. Most weekends there are plenty of other kids around and often street performers with bubbles, etc.
  • A nice little Piazza until the vultures attack. I don't mean actual vultures but the little salesmen. I took my girlfriend here but we had to scatter after we kept reluctantly getting attacked by people forcing roses into our faces and trying to grab our hands. They like you until you turn them down. These people are everywhere tourists are but I found the group of them that hang out here to be especially rude. They are ruining this Piazza. Stay away from the middle of the piazzaand go up to the garden or see the overview.
  • Gorgeous piazza which I never heard about. If the weather in Rome is sunny go there in the evening. Place is stunning. When you are on the piazza make sure you walk up to Terazza di Pincio where in the evening views on Rome and St Peters Cathedral are just magical. Also there is lovely Pincio park packed with little ponds, fountains and tons of sculptures.
  • Time to explore Piazza del Popolo’s fascinating mythology. Some things to catch: 1. Santa Maria del Popolo - another setting for a scene in Angels and Demons. It’s also an amazing monument to Renaissance and Baroque art from the names of Raphael and Bernini. Check out Habakkuk and the Angel, as seen from the movie. 2. The Aurelian Walls - the walls built to surround Rome’s borders during the rule of Roman Emperor Aurelian. 3. An Egyption obelisk - one of many in Rome - that was moved to Rome from Heliopolis. Flanking the obelisks are fountains formed by lion sculptures 4. Twin churches - The Santa Maria in Montesanto and Santa Maria dei Miracoli 5. Sculpture of Neptune on one of the fountains 6. The sculpture Rome between the Tiber and the Aniene, depicting the deity Roma and a she-wolf feeding Romulus and Remus, the twin brothers in the myth of Rome’s founding. 6. A stairway that leads up to Piazza Napoleone I, one of the best vantage spot in Rome (of which this photo was taken)
