This square I think the biggest one in Pisa. The shopping paradise Via Corso Italia stops in this square. Chismas time city council builds here skating spot and carousels for children. In the centre of this square is Vitorio Emanuel monument.

There are a few things to see within and a rich history. However it was a bit overgrown and neglected with a lot of vagrants hanging about.

In this Piazza, which is almost like a park - there were several monuments/sculptures/old buildings and such to have a look at. Rather green for being called "Piazza" - with gorgeous tall trees, including some palm trees.. grassy areas and benches to sit down. When we visited there was a closed area around the "Magical Door", so we couldn't come... More

We came upon this square after we bought trian tickets for Orvieto and had to wait two hours for the train, so we decided to walk around outside Termini. Not a nice area. The piazza itself was hosting several individuals drinking and the overall feel was one of "get out of here and soon". The territory between here and Termini... More

My family runs a hotel in Piazza Vittorio Emanuele for over 54 years, during which almost a million guests arrived, have gone, have walked, have gone to dinner and come back, even in the late evening, an incalculable number of times. None of them has ever been involved in or witnessed any incident of violence. Nor on the web there... More

Piazza Vittorio Emanuelle II is not a place I would go out of my way to visit, we had been here before in years gone by and was only here this time as we were staying in the area and it was on our path to get to somewhere else. The Piazza is not well kept and does have an... More

First time in Rome. Walked past from termini. Too many homeless people sitting around with armed police and military police present. Not what I expected unfortunately...

I thought the view of the wedding cake. The huge white building was amazing. The piazza is very large area. Buildings around it a architecturally very interesting. This area I believe was built on top of an ancient Roman site. The buildings in existence back then are under ground still there in places. I saw a recent documentary on it.... More

An old piazza and a garden in front. A nice place to visit and there is a simple market right in front. THe place is the fort for cats. U see a lot of cats camping there.

This enormous piazza near the Termini is not to be confused with the monument on the Corso in the Storico. There are many people here, kind of a hangout, and some gardens. A little unkempt. Suspect it could be dodgy at times.

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
