Trastevere Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore

Piazza di Santa Maria in Trastevere houses the beautiful Basilica of Our Lady in Trastevere with its Medieval mosaics and frescoes, while in the center of the square, there is one of the oldest fountains in Rome. The great labyrinth of streets all lead to this small square. It is a piazza with a dual personality: tranquil by day with its sparkling fifteenth century fountain, while in the evening it’s a lively meeting place for night-lifers due to the square and surrounding streets abundance of bars and eateries.

With its three majestic fountains and surrounding mansions, Piazza Navona is one of the most beautiful Baroque squares in Rome and it is thronging with life. Here you will find a variety of street entertainers and a wide array of street artists ready to do your portrait or sell you their work. Particularly stunning at night with the theatrical splendour of the Fountain of the Four Rivers that creates the impression of a stage backdrop or a film set.

Campo dei Fiori is located in the historic center and there aren't any subway stations nearby. Probably the oldest market in Rome, every morning from Monday through Saturday it houses a market well-known for its flowers,  fruits and vegetables. The big statue in the center of the square of a hooded figure that watches over the square marks the exact spot where on 17 February 1600 philosopher and friar Giordano Bruno was burnt alive, accused of heresy by the Church for his revolutionary theories about the universe. Traditional by day, at night it becomes a cosmopolitan and noisy square overtaken by students, tourists and loud music echoing from many surrounding pubs and bars. From the swedish bar to the english pub and italian wine bar - there is something for everyone.
