The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.

A very nice piazza with plenty of trees and shade. Also, with some roman ruins, that you can see from outside. By night there was a fair with food, drink and music, absolutely lovely.

A beautiful area to relax and unwind from the intensity of the city. The park/piazza is a green oasis with an old fountain, the Magical Door, green areas, dog area and places for the local kids to play basketball. Outside the park you can also get some snacks or something cold to drink. It is a place well worth a visit, if not just to get an opportunity to rest and watch the locals enjoying some time off.

In the Esquiline area, it is Rome’s largest piazza in area at roughly 5.5 hectares. It was largely built in the 1880’s. It includes the Giardini Nicola Calipari and the Roman ruins of the ‘Trophy of Marius’ where a 3rd c AD aqueduct ended.

A nice park with the subway Vittorio Emanuele close by. Not a big park this one, but eating lunch here is nice! Very close, ten min walk to Colosseum.

After more than 20 years, the Gardens of Piazza Vittorio have come back to life and have been reopened to citizens.
The green heart of the Esquilino district in Rome has been completely reorganized, cleaned and embellished.
Some corners with fountains and buildings of ancient Rome appeared in their former glory.
The new gardens are fantastic and leave you breathless.
We highly recommend to visit them in a sunny day.

Just returned from a mediterranean cruise and we stayed two days after in Rome to see the sights. While walking around came upon this massive monument/structure. Climb the stairs to the top - the views are incredible. We watched the changing of the guard. A nice treat.

This attraction was the best for me. Free initially to enter but we'll worth paying 10euros to go in the lift to the very top. 360 degree panoramic view of Rome. Truly breathtaking. Best 10 euros I spent all trip. Highly recommended. Fabulous building.

So we jumped off the metro at Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II as we did 4 years ago as this is the closest stop to Fassi gelato. When we visited the area 4 years ago it felt quite rundown and a little bit grimey, unfortunately it still feels the same which is a huge shame!

The park was closed off so we couldn't appreciate the Trophies of Marius or anything the park had to offer. It really is in need of some attention but as it isn't one of the "TOP" attractions I suspect it has been missed.

This is the largest square in the city and located close to Termini Station. This wide expense of greenery within the city is popular and frequented by locals.
