    Piazza di Spagna

    Piazza di Spagna, Rome 00187 Italy
    0.64 mi from Borghese Gallery
    110 reviews

    My favorite part of the Spanish Plaza is the fountain. In fact one of the coolest features of Rome is that fresh, drinkable, delicious and free water flows from lions' mouths everywhere you go.

    Fun place to go for a few hours. Nothing to do with the People's Piazza. It's about popular trees nearby. Serves as a monument to Roman imperialism with some obelisks that were nicked from the Egyptians.

    So many people pass up Villa Borghese when visiting Rome. To me it was my escape in the city. The park really is massive - you could wander around all day. The trees envelop you and the little fountains, benches, and museums throughout are not to be missed. Such a great way to escape the crowds and appreciate the beauty ...

    Definitely go at night when it is just eerily beautiful to behold. Roman grandeur writ very large. And it's a lot of fun too, especially navigating the crowds and climbing the steps.

    Rome is filled with precious pieces of art history that a traveler in a hurry could overlook, and this church is one. Secreted inside is Bernini's masterwork Ecstasy of Saint Teresa, a prime example of sensual Baroque sculpture.

    Capuchin Crypt

    Via Vittorio Veneto 27, Rome 00187 Italy
    0.7 mi from Borghese Gallery
    15 reviews

    Recommended to me by fellow Gogoboters, this is an insanely beautiful yet haunting crypt with the bones of hundreds of Capuchin monks. They have a taste for the macabre, but it's one of the most remarkable tributes to the pedigree of the order.

    A lovely place to sit on the wall, look over a panoramic view of Rome and take in a sunset, the Pincio is also usually less crowded than the Gianicolo.

    This church contains two great Caravaggio paintings, the Crucifixion of St Peter and the Conversion of St Paul. The drama of the paintings is a must experience while in Rome.

    Quattro Fontane

    Crossing of Via delle Quattro Fontane and Via del Quirinale, Rome, Italy
    0.87 mi from Borghese Gallery
    6 reviews

    These four fountains on the corners of an intersection in the Quirinale is one of the many small pleasures to be discovered while walking in Rome. Not really worth the trip on their own, but if you go to the intersection, you will be next to Boromini's church San Carlino, which is well worth the trip.

    Near Termini, a visit here was the perfect choice for me on a cool rainy Roman day. Wow was I pleasantly surprised! Not only do they have TWO amazing Greek bronzes (really rare, and I was disappointed that the Boxer was at the Met in NYC during my visit) but they also have an eye-opening collection of Roman mosaics. The ...

    Step through the unassuming entrance to this amazing church located in a building that used to house Roman baths. You will be greeted by a grand dome topped with an incredible stained glass image of the solar system. Inside, you can admire the old meridian which, until the mid 1800s, was used to set the clocks in Rome.

    It amazes me that more people don't visit this monument. It is a little out of the way but before the sackings of the 5th Century, it housed the ashes of most of the Julio-Claudian dynasty.

    One of my favorite fountains in Rome. I really loved the monument here, the detail in the sculpture work is really nice. I also love the bronzed color. It's a great piece to photograph.

    Sant'Andrea delle Fratte is a late Renaissance/Baroque church dedicated to St. Andrew and at one time was the church of the Scottish people in Rome (as St. Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland). Part of the building was designed by the Baroque architectural genius, Borromini. Inside are some angels designed by Bernini and intended for the Ponte Sant'Angelo but ...

    What a original place in Rome. This block was designed at the beginning of 1900 in a very original style by the architect Coppede. It is a very fascinating and mysterious place. Houses are really strange, a little gothic I would say, with very high ceilings and strange style. The entrance to it is a huge arch connecting two buildings. ...
