One of the smaller squares in Rome. Go into the church to see the Caravaggios- the main thing this square is known for. The church is also interesting. Be sure to check opening/closing times, as the tourist book times are not exactly right on. We missed open time by 1/2 hour on a Thursday afternoon and had to go back a few days later, not the times shown in our guide book.
Walk one block to Osteria Pereria (spelling) a cafe and restaurant that has really good pizza and coffee drinks - a good place to sit with free wi-fi while figuring out what to do next.

We met our Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius tour in this piazza, but beware of no early morning food/beverage options and pickpockets who operate in the area around the fountains. If you are meeting an early morning tour group here, be sure to bring your own food and beverage....it was a loooonnnnnnnngggggggg drive to Pompeii with no fuel.

MOVIE SPOT! Again, many, many films here but recently, Ron Howard's ANGELS AND DEMONS, in one of the churches at the side of the piazza, they find the first cardinal buried in the "earth." This famous square can also be seen in NINE (the film about Fellini and his films, starring Daniel Day Lewis). The obelisk with four lions statues is a favorite meeting spot for tours and tourists. The Villa Borghese can be seen on one side.
