    Piazza del Popolo without people

    Favorite thing: All the piazzas in Rome are magnets for people. You won't see many people if you take a stroll at 5:00 am in the morning.

    Piazza del Popolo was a 5 minute walk from the Hotel Dei Mellini, and is one of the gateways to Villa Borghese, Rome's counterpart to Central Park.

    Piazza del Popolo

    Favorite thing: Although this isn't the most beautiful square of Rome, it's worth the visit for the great size of the square, the elegant church of Santa Maria del Popolo, and the charming view of the near-twin Baroque churches, Santa Maria dei Miracoli and Santa Maria in Montesa.-
    During summer, the steps around the obelisk and fountain, and the cafés on either side of the square, are very popular.-

    Aunque no sea la plaza más bella de Roma, merece una visita, tanto por su gran escala - es inmensa -, como por la elegante iglesia de Santa María del Popolo y la encantadora vista de las dos iglesias gemelas, la Santa Maria dei Miracoli y la Santa Maria in Montesa.-
    Durante los días de verano, los escalones alrededor del obelisco que se encuentra en su centro, y los cafés que se encuentran a ambos lados de la plaza son muy populares.-

    Favorite thing: the piazza itself is quite nice but once you are here, i would recommend walking up onto pincio hill and on into the borghese gardens. this is looking up onto the hill from the piazza.

    Favorite thing: Piazza del Popolo (More pics are in Travelogue ^^)

    Fondest memory: These 'Twin Churches' were designed by Rainaldi in 1660, and completed in 1679 with the help by Bernini and Fontana.
