El obelisco Flaminio (así llamado porque marca el comienzo de la Vía Flaminia) u obelisco de la Piazza del Popolo forma parte de los trece Obeliscos de Roma y es uno de los primeros que fueron transportados a la ciudad desde Egipto. Está tallado en granito rojo de Asuán, mide 23.30 metros y pesa 235 toneladas. Con la base y la cruz alcanza una altura total de 36.50 metros.
Rome and good food. Here you get the two at a reasonable price. Fast service. Clean good and efficient. Enjoy without the big bill.
Beautiful space with the tall needle-like obelisk monument anchoring the centre. Used by the soap bubble artiste to amuse children with his myriad sizes of balloons from millions of small and big bubbles to great, big giant ones. Adults alike appreciate the magical sight of bubbles appearing in the wind like jet stream. For kids who contribute to his soap cost, the artiste squats down to the little tyke's level and blow out individual bubbles with his mouth. Can just imagine these kids going home with the sense of wonder that makes childhood memories so precious. In the cool evening air, yet another artiste fills the air with his creative violin music. Music and magic bubbles... Perfect backdrop for many couples dotting the square doing kissing selfies.
This is a very nice piazza with an obelisk in the center. It is quite large and a good place for large gatherings. The hilltop nearby overlooking the piazza is worth the climb because the views from there are amazing and it leads to a very nice park. The are also good food options nearby.
This Piazza is pretty busy all the time. We went here for NY Eve and it was crazy! Very busy and quite the party! New Year's day there was a great parade. There are allllllll kinds of stores around. Be careful though as they have the same stores on different streets so it's easy to get confused if you are trying to go back to 'the store you were just in' :) Our hotel (River Palace) was a 2 min walk to the Piazza which was perfect.
Beautiful piazza with sculptures and fountains around the Flaminio obelisk which is one of the 13 ancient obelisks in Rome. Dating back to 13th century BC for the build date, the obelisk was originally placed in the Temple of the Sun in Heliopolis, but in 10 BC Augustus decided he wanted it brought to Rome, and well, there it is! Detail on it after all these centuries is fantastic. Also has really nice fountain sculptures, the original entrance to Rome, and other beautiful buildings.
This is a large Piazza with an obelisk surrounded by 4 fountains. There are 2 cafes on opposite end and on a sunny day, this is a very good place to people watch. 3 commercials roads full of high end shops lead to this area where some hotels are also situated at.
I liked the place. After the long walk and before the climbing to villa Borghese, just taking a break here is a good decision. Many musicians and artist. Surrounded by caffe and restaurants. Enjoy the sun!
Gorgeous view of the city. If you have climbed the Vatican you'll appreciate this view from a different angle. Far out, if you only have a few days in the city, stay in the center and skip this. If you have time come here and enjoy it. Combine it with a walk in the Borghese gardens.
Piazza del Popolo is one of the main squares of Rome, located in the city center. It is well connected to public transport and every day welcomes thousands of turist who come to take photo, walk through the streets of shops, admire the Pincio or enjoy the nightlife in Rome...I highly recommend it to those who come to discover the beauty of the eternal city..
Nice works of art and pictures of ancient Greek mythology such as Zeus and so on! It's a nice place to visit with your loved ones.
Good place to hang out there are clothing restrictions if you are entering the church. Easily accessible just outside the metro station. Beautiful
One of the best place to have an overview of part of Rome if you walk up to the hill beside it. The water running in a fountain near the big arch over the street is drinkable. Many people fill in water container um that fountain.
Simply beautiful and amazing. Crazy to see something so ancient still standing. Like any place in Rome get here early to appreciate it without all the crowds
Perfect place to observe and enjoy. A bit hot during summer months, but perfect in autumn. Bevare of the common tourist traps of course.
A bit out of the way from some of the other sights in Rome but I would still suggest it. The square and fountain is beautiful and there's lots of seating right on the fountain for people to relax and enjoy. Very cool to see three of the main streets of Rome diverging from this one point. I walked here in the afternoon after leaving the Vatican one day. It's a long walk but nice along the river. Then I sat at the fountain for about an hour, people watching and reading by book before heading off to find dinner. It was a lovely memory of Rome!
Amazing square with lot of history. You should visit it! (A few free walking tours start there)
One of the first place we visited and what a view we had when we finally reached the top. It was a long way up but well worth it. It's also a great spot to enjoy your gelato in the square and just take a little break from all the walking and sightseeing! Located a short walk from the Spanish Steps so really easy to get to aswell.
Beautiful and lively with street performers and children chasing the bubbles. Beware of the scams though if you are willing buy something from the people selling knick knacks on the square.
Great little place to visit. Every open and there is a great little viewing area up the stairs
