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.

Flanked by grand neoclassical colonnades, this landmark piazza was laid out as part of Rome’s post-unification makeover. It follows the lines of the semicircular exedra (benched portico) of Diocletian’s baths complex and was originally known as Piazza Esedra. In the centre, the Fontana delle Naiadi aroused puritanical ire when it was unveiled by architect Mario Rutelli in 1901. The nudity of the four naiads or water nymphs, who surround the central figure of Glaucus wrestling a fish, was considered too provocative.

You can't but run into this magnificent castle with impressive fountains and 2 theatrical flames if you're walking around Rome through the main street. Wasn't on my to-do list but was very delightful to see its grandeur.Recommended for:History Buffs

Piazza della Repubblica is one of Rome's grand sights if you're traveling by car, much like how PIazza Venezia wows newcomers to the Eternal City. It's not surrounded by tourists and there's a beautiful fountain in the center. The architecture around the Fontana delle Naiadi is equally beautiful, especially at night when the place is dramatically illuminated.

This is a nice piazza near Termini station. We like that they have a McDonald's here with outside seating with no extra cost. You can sit and watch the people and the traffic while eating your burger and fries. The huge fountain in the middle is one of the best in Rome and is lit up after dark.
