Home to the mouth of truth, that iconic scene from Roman Holiday. Be prepared to wait in line for a while

Piazza della Bocca della Verita is a place worth visiting. It is in a very busy area, but it is virtually surrounded by history. There are several temples, and Arches at least one fountain, a park and other things worth seeing. The piazza was named...More

Super easy to find, very easy to get from Circo Massimo (metro station). Opens at 9:30, but the line is already there. Don't worry, it goes super fast. When you've made some pictures with the Mouth, you are entering Basilica (make sure you're dressed properly)....More

Around this square there are several interesting things - the mouth of the truth, the Santa Maria church in Kosmedin and an ancient small forum with two temples in it. To see the 'mouth of truth' should be waiting in line.

We arrived here early (10am) and the line was already walked out and down. We waited for 30 minutes and finally had enough. Not really worth going over for. If you are on a fast paced city visit, this place is a time-sucker and not...More

Queued up for around 10-15 minutes and had a photo with my hand in its mouth. We didn't pay anything and had a quick look around the church which was nice inside. It's just one of those touristy things to do in Rome and tick...More

Visited in June 2016 and sure there was queue of people, but go to Colosseo for a proper one :) First of all the queue is doable, goes very fast, since everybody is allowed to take 1 picture (sure everybody is cheating including me and...More

Contrary to the chaos of the city, the Aventine is
Rome’s oasis. A neighbourhood made up of a patchwork
of ancient churches, hidden gardens, private homes and
embassies, peace and quiet is top priority and the
vibe definitely friends and family. Take a walk around
the Aventine and you’ll find a treasure hunt of
surprises like the clever little keyhole at the
Knights of Malta entrance (the only place you’ll find
