A quiet piazza housing part of the Italian Parliament and an Egyptian Obelisk. A walking haven of tranquillity sandwiched in between the hubbubs of The Pantheon and Via Del Corso. Pleasant to stroll through and take a breath.

Located in the heart of Rome, this piazza is home to Palazzo Monecitorio and the Montecitorio Obelisk. It is located just around the corner from Piazza di Colonna.

I happened on this square passing through to the buses at Chigi. Interestiung enough with an Obelisk, but the most intriguing was the stars on the paving. Never did find out what they represent

Because this piazza is so close to Piazza Navonna, you will probably see it as you are going from here to there. Compared to other piazzas and buildings, it is not especially noteworthy, but the architecture is impressive. If you are in the area, check...More

The Parliament Square has an interesting obelisk in front of it. There is a lot of guards and it's probably not very popular with tourists.

This is a small (and not too impressive) square, facing the Italian Parliament. There's an obelisk in the middle of the square and there were also several protest tents in the square during our visit.

Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos,
goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross
paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the
very centre of the city. Even though it has some of
the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle
Epoque shopping centre, and a magnificent Baroque
parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty
face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural
