    1 review

    Run by Campagna Amica, a national association that promotes "0km" (local) produce, this covered market is one of Rome's best local secrets. Held every Saturday and Sunday just around the corner from the Circus Maximus, the market sells goods directly from producers who hail from Rome's Lazio region.

    The first time I entered the Colosseo some years back, I was in awe. Entering it again a few years later didn't change a thing. Can you imagine living in Rome and passing this beauty on a daily basis? You can't avoid that there will always be throngs of tourists, but it's a little easier in the winter months if ...

    Small area of Rome "across the river" which is what the name means. It's where all the Americans usually get apartments. Kinda pricey, but beautiful. There are winding cobblestone roads that lead to piazzas with fountains and churches. Great little restaurants.

    Piazza Venezia

    0.6 mi from Palatine Hill
    86 reviews

    Piazza Venezia is a beautiful initial welcome to Rome. I recall our tour bus passing it the first time I came here half a year ago. I overheard some tourists a few days ago at Castel Sant'Angelo talking about how their taxi drove past here twice. It's impressive. It's also wildly crazy and crowded. I prefer the more pedestrian-friendly piazze. ...

    This is Rome! Beautiful square, breath-taking architecture, essential to any walking tour of Rome. Probably best observed at night but there is more to do during the day.

    It's an oft-repeated cliché that Rome is an open air museum and nowhere is it truer than when strolling down Via dei Fori Imperiali, the large avenue that runs from the Colosseum to the Piazza Venezia. On the north side of the street, you have the Forum of Trajan; on the south, the Forum of Augustus, the Basilica of Maxentius ...

    The column sitting in Piazza Venezia is a copy of the original. The scroll that winds its way up the column telling the story of Trajan's victory is a much copied design.
