  • Quaint square in the middle of Trastevere. Beautiful fountain in the middle with a view of the church as one part of the square. Several restaurants and shops line it as well. Take a break, eat outside and people watch. Relaxed during the day with a vibrant nightlife in the area.
  • Lovely little square with a must-see basilica, fun fountain, ivy dripping from walkways, and several little cafes and restaurants around. Great spot to get a coffee and watch the world go by in a beautiful setting
  • Very nice place to sit and just chill out. There is also a very good ice cream shop - blue Ice. Recommend you to try :)
  • Great happening vibe. Good buskers. Great food. Artsy shops.
  • It was ok, but yet another street market. We were there in the morning, and no one was there available.
