Nice gateway

This wasn't far from our hotel so we saw it at night and walked past it again during the day, well worth the 2 minute walk for us.

A wonderful place surrounded by hotels, restaurants and gelato bars, as well as quick access to transport links. We stayed at Hotel Porta Pia which was not far from the land mark and was quite a pleasant experience.

The Porta Pia is an interesting monument which was designed by Michelangelo. Inside the Porta Pia is a small two-part historical museum of the Risorgimento. Both parts of the museum are free and a guard will be happy to escort visitors and further discuss the exhibit. Worth the stop. Located in front of the UK Embassy.

Neighbourhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
