Close to the Termini Station we went here to enjoy the park and it's beautiful monuments. Close by you can stop for a drink in one of the terraces or restaurants here.

There's little special here, but it's only a short walk from Termini Station and a nice spot for a picnic. There are mostly locals here and, of note, the remains of an historic fountain, the Trophy of Marius. If you're heading to San Giovanni, you...More

This is a detour, not a destination. We stayed at an apartment nearby and visited multiple shops and my wife ran around the park each morning for her daily run, but other than a quick glance, it is nothing special.

We have been there many times and this time we brought kitty treats to feed the cats. They live in the ruins there and many people see that they are fed and watered. They even have little individual houses under the trees.

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
