If you’re passing the train terminal might be worth taking a look. Intriguing idea with the open cloak but not really worth a detour

Considering it’s so close to Termini train station you can get to it easily. I wouldn’t base an entire trip around it but at the very least if you’re centrally based you’ll probably end up walking past it.

A very tasteful sculpture of an amazing man, depicting his warmth and caring to all man. We especially like how it gives the impression it is enveloping the visitor.

The statue is with its open center depicting the pope opening his robe to welcome and protect. But looks out of proportion - the head is big the face small... the robe look unnatural and the whole statue look more like a huge penguin from...More

I came across this statue of Pope John Paul II unexpectedly while on a bus stuck in traffic. It immediately caught my eye as it is at least 16ft tall with a billowing cape. I was struck by the simplicity and symbolism of this work...More

I liked this statue and found it appealing in its simplicity. I'm not sure it's worth going out of your way to see it but due to its central location it's difficult to miss

What a beautiful Statue of the Holy Father. Very artistic. Like nothing I have ever seen before. I am so happy that I got the chance to see it. I didn't even know this statue existed.

It's just a statue. Nothing more. You can't even notice that is there. The surroundings are so dirty and filled with trash. There are many other things better than this.

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
