The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Colonna
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very centre of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping centre, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.

The origins of the name of Piazza di Pietra are not yet known, although it appears very likely that it derives from the fact that in this area there were many "stones" that came from the ruins of the ancient "Hadrianeum", the temple built in honor of emperor Hadrian, deified after his death by his successor Antoninus Pius in 145 AD.
In 1873 the building was purchased by the Chamber of Commerce, which placed its headquarters there, after some restoration works by architect Virginio Vespignani.
Noteworthy on the square is the noble palace Ferrini Cini, designed by Onorio Longhi at the beginning of the seventeenth century and finished only in 1743 under the direction of the architect Ferdinando Fuga.
The square becomes more evocative in the evening with the skilful play of lights, sounds and images that illuminate the colonnade of the Temple of Hadrian at nightfall.
Visit it after sunset!

Wonderful little square, the highlight of which are the eleven columns of Hadrian’s Temple. Sit down at one of the bars and enjoy the buskers playing in the square. Each evening there is a light and audio show beamed on the columns which map or the story of the square through the ages. A wonderful place to enjoy the atmosphere of a Roman evening.

This is just kind of an average small piazza except one wall has these ancient columns from the Temple of Hadrian that was built in 145AD. It really is cool to run into this as you walk through the city.

This small narrow piazza houses the remains of The Temple of Hadrian. The soaring ancient columns that are still standing are quite impressive.

The smallish square is dominated (in every sense of the word) by the soaring columns of the Temple of Hadrian. The 11 columns have been incorporated into a more modern structure (more so than the 145 AD year old columns).

Ringing the plaza are some interesting buildings and relaxing cafes. Once upon a time, there was a college for Bergamo students and there is also a Palazzo Ferrini building here in the square.

I wouldn't classify this as a very pretty or pedestrian friendly plaza; it's claim to fame is really the Temple columns. Some of the side streets have more activity and give glimpses into the lives of the residents. The scene of the nun, bending over to converse with an elderly (and alone) man in a wheelchair, really found its way to our hearts. Random acts of kindness are too far and few between.

A small rectangular square in the vicinity of the Patheon strikes you with a splendid collonade of 15- meter corinthian columns.
The remains of the Adrian Palazio.
Better come here at night so the square is lighted and has its magic.

Didn’t go intentionally to see this but the building on this square is an impressive one - almost morphed now into the modern buildings around it.

This narrow piazza is home to the remains of Hadrian’s Temple. The current street level is even with the entrance to the temple, but the bottom of the moat in front of the temple is the ancient street level. This is also home to numerous Palazzos, which house bars and cafes.
