Owner description: Twin fountain at the Piazza Farnese

Sad to say it was not for us, but for hippy/touristy area and very commercialised. But some of the back streets were very nice and good to explore. Some truly quirky shops.

This is a great place to have a breather after the growds in Campo de Fiori. The terraced bar/cafe at the side of the piazza is very good. Prices are not outrageous, if I remember correctly, and they serve delicious little sides with your drink. I have also tried the adjoining restaurant, but it was years ago so I can't say anything definitive about it.

The Piazza Farnese is not well known at all. The best part of the plaza is the Palazzo Farnese. The architecture of this building is beautiful and it is known as one of the most beautiful Renaissance buildings in the city. Good place to take a photo.

Being a spa fan, I always visit any Antique Baths and of course I have visited the colossal Terme di Caracalla, so I loved the fact that these urban fountains in the middle of Piazza Farnese are indeed old bathtubs from the Terme di Caracalla (Caracalla Baths).
How poetic!

Piazza Farnese is right next to Campo de´ Fiori , and it is a quiet Piazza compared to others like Navona for example.
The main structure of this Piazza is the Palazzo Farnese (French embassy). This Palazzo was once redesigned by important architects like Giacomo della Porta and Michelangelo Buonarroti, and like any of his creations it is worth admiring.
What I found most interesting about Palazzo Farnese´s façade is that you can still see the Papal coat of arms right above the entrance, because Alessandro Farnese was Pope Paul III.
I loved the fountains that are antique bathtubs coming from the Terme di Caracalla.
So, even a quiet Piazza like Piazza Farnese in Rome, is full of history!
