This isn’t as busy as you’d think it would be. It’s a really large and beautiful open plaza. The obelisk in the centre is very impressive.

We thought this was one of the most beautiful sights in Rome, although it not at the top of most lists. An expansive square, with an imposing fountain and the obligatory obelisk. It’s more wide open and less busy than many other sights. A good...More

The piazza is located at the end of Via Del Corso the street with a lot of shopping and noise. You can find the two basilicas there amd get a lovely pics between them.

Not much to do but different monuments with good view. Take steps to have altitude in order to have a global view, it’s nice !

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to

Most of the tours start around Colosseo. You can reach Termini metro station by express, regional train or bus from airport. Booking around Termini metro station would be sensible.
