What Will You Do

Piazza dei Santi Apostoli

The square takes its name from the Church of the Saints Apostles that stands here, flanked by the Della Rovere Palace, also known as the Palace of the Saints Apostles.

Piazza Venezia

It is a famous square located at the foot of the Capitol, where five of the capital's most important streets intersect. The square is dominated by the Altare della Patria, one of Italy's patriotic symbols; three monumental palaces surround it on the other sides: the oldest is the 15th-century Palazzo Venezia, which gives its name to the square and is home to the national museum; the other palaces are the 17th-century Palazzo Bonaparte and the Palazzo delle Assicurazioni Generali, built in the early 20th century.

Largo di Torre Argentina

Largo di Torre Argentina is a square. In its centre is an archaeological area with the ruins of four Roman temples dating from the Republican era. Here were found the ruins of the Curia of Pompey, where the senators of Rome met, and famous for the assassination of Julius Caesar

Campo De' Fiori

Campo de' Fiori is a famous square. Until the 15th century, the square didn’t exist; in its place was a flowery meadow, hence the name. According to one tradition, the square took is name from Flora, a woman loved by Pompey, who had built his theatre nearby. Executions took place in Campo de' Fiori. In 1600 the philosopher and Dominican friar Giordano Bruno, accused of heresy, was burnt alive there. In 1889 a bronze statue was erected in the centre of the square in memory of the philosopher

Piazza Navona

Piazza Navona is a symbol of Roman Baroque, with architectural and sculptural elements by Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Francesco Borromini. In ancient Rome, it was the Stadium of Domitian, which was built by Emperor Domitian in 85. The name of the square was originally 'in Agone' (from the Latin in agonis, 'games') because the stadium was used exclusively for athletic competitions. In the square stands the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone, which commemorates the martyrdom of the Saint that occurred in that part of the square.

Pantheon

The Pantheon was built as a temple dedicated to all the divinities of the past, present and future. It was founded in 27 BC by Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa. It was rebuilt by Emperor Hadrian after fires had damaged it. In the early 7th century, the Pantheon was converted into a Christian basilica called Santa Maria della Rotonda or Santa Maria ad Martyres. It was the first case of a pagan temple being transposed to Christian devotion. Almost two millennia after its construction, the dome is still one of the largest domes in the world, and specifically the largest built in Roman concrete.

Piazza di Pietra

Located in the historical centre, the square is dominated by the colonnade of the Temple of Hadrian, erected by Emperor Antoninus Pius in honour of his adoptive father Hadrian: this colonnade was incorporated in the late 17th century into the new building of the Customs House of Land Goods by architect Carlo Fontana. The name of the square is of popular attribution, most probably due to the imposing stones of the colonnade

Piazza Colonna

It owes its name to the Column of Marcus Aurelius that has stood here since antiquity. It is surrounded by some of the most important historical palaces in Rome, including Palazzo Chigi, seat of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers.

Trevi Fountain

The fountain is the largest of Rome's famous fountains. It was built between 1732 and 1762 and became world famous after Fellini's film La Dolce Vita.
