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.

Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II, also known as Piazza Vittorio, is located neat the Termini. On a green area there are several mysterious ruins, part of the Roman fountain from the 3rd century and Porta Magica, an unusual doorway from the 17th century. Around the square there are a lot of lovely wooden cottages with flowers.

This is a nice square to visit, there are a few things to see within. What I did find offputting though was there were a large number of youths hanging around in the park and it made it difficult to walk around it.

It is a nice square and garden with ruins of the romans. Nice to visit. It must not be mistaken with the the monument of Vittorio Emanuele II or the unknown solder monument as most of us know it.

Huge piazza with little of interest. Different palazzo surround much of the piazza. The gardens and fountains are not well kept. I suppose you might visit if you were interested in alchemy (the Porta Alchemica is here) or you were an Italian realist film buff (great scene of The Bicycle Thief was short here). Otherwise, pass. Not much reason to... More

The view from the rooftop gives you a stunning 360 degree look over Rome which is unrivalled from any other site in Rome itself and worth the small fee to go up by elevator.

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.
