Create an itinerary including Piazza del Popolo
Piazza del Popolo has long served as meeting place for the people of Rome. Begin your tour of the large square with a look at the northern gate's inscription, which reads, "For a happy and blessed entrance." This message was left for Queen Christiana upon her arrival to the city following her conversion to Roman Catholicism. In the center, marvel at the ancient Egyptian obelisk brought to Rome in 10 BCE. Admire the square's almost identical churches and see if you can spot the differences between them.

  • A lovely piazza away from the more iconic sites. There are great opportunities for pictures here, numerous vendors and a little elbow room. Near a park and train station.
