Piazza Farnese is a fairly large public square in a lovely part of Rome. There are a couple of nice fountains there and, of course, the French Embassy occupies pride of place, being housed in a beautiful palace which dominates the whole square.

The Piazza Farnese is a wide-open square with lots of interesting streets going in all different directions. There are two strange shaped fountains in the square. Most people referred to them as bathtubs. They were taken from the Baths of Caracalla in 1466. The Palazzo...More

With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
