A Week in Rome

Today we have been here a week! I got a book yesterday about the main piazzas in Rome.

From the book “Views of Rome Piazzas Across the Centuries” by Alberto Lombardo, 2002.

Piazza di San Pietro: In front of St. Peters in Vatican City.
Piazza di San Marco:
Piazza del Campidoglio: In front of the Capitoline museum, designed by Michealangelo.
Piazza della Rotunda: In front of the Pantheon.
Piazza della Minerva: In front of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva. Contains an obelisk on top of a statue accredited to Bernini.
Piazza Collana:
Piazza di Montecitorio:
Piazza del Popolo: At the start of the shopping steet Via del Corso. Contains an obelisk.
Piazza Navona: In the heart of Rome, contains a fountain by Bernini among other things.
Piazza di Pasquino: One block from Piazza Navona, contains the famous “talking” statue (where people post political notes).
Piazza Farnese:
Piazza Campo de’Fiori:
Piazza di Spagna: Also called Piazza della Trinita dei Monte. The Spanish Steps.
Piazza del Quirinale:
Piazza Barberini: Fountain by Bernini.
Piazza di Santa Maria Maggiore: Also called Piazza Esquilino. In front of the church Santa Maria Maggiore.
Piazza San Giovani in Laterano:
Piazza Mattei:
Piazza di Santa Maria in Trastevere: In front of the church Santa Maria in Trastevere.
Piazza di San Bartolomeo all’Isola:

I was thinking it would be fun to visit them all in one day and take photos of each one.
