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.

This Piazza is now home to the seat of the Government, has an ancient obelisk, but once was the site of the grand sundial of Emperor Augustus. Traces of the sundial are still visible. However, traces of the Monte Citorio - one of the small...More

This piazza as an interesting Egyptian obelisk which I find interesting. These were collected as trophies from Roman conquests and several are seen throughout Rome. This also acts as the seat of government and is highly secured with lots of police. A half block off...More

This square got its name from one of the small hills of Rome, Citorio. Although it has not a very impressive view, the political center of Rome and Italy is here. Italy is a parliamentary Republic and the lower house of Parliament - the Chamber...More

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.

Not a whole lot to see in this square. The obelisk is cool though. Interesting to me to see the Parlement building. The square is more or less on the way between the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon. You may as well walk by.

Colonna
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
