If you miss this one it's ok. Just a typical piazza as you walk through different areas. Very small. Every one has at least 1 statue to look at

It's a beautiful little piazza and our hotel is directly on it, I'm not sure I would have gone out of my way to visit it had we not been staying here though.

The Pasquino—Piazza Pasquino—is a weathered, scarred sculpture that is believed to be a depiction of the Spartan King Menelaus. Regardless of its history and antiquity, the people of Rome complain that it’s ugly and an eyesore. The talking statues of Rome were used as an...More

Piazza di Pasquino used to be Piazza di Parione. There is not much in the piazza other than a couple of places to eat but it is Pasquino, who is the star of the piazza. He is the first and most popular “talking statue” in...More

This mutilated torso of a Hellenistic statue is called with this name owing it to a richly talented tailor named Mastro Pasquino; he had a shop on the square and was apparently the firsto to affix a poetic satire to the torso, which, from then...More

This is a most odd and curious statue. The Pasquino became the first “talking statue” of Rome. He spoke out about the people's dissatisfaction, denounced injustice, and assaulted misgovernment by members of the Church. So the people would leave notes anonymously of their dissatisfaction on...More

Amazing quality time. Feel peace in this narrow place. It is in the accessible place to reach different historical places.

You are bound to be in the area at some point so tske a couple of minutes to visit this raggedy old statue. It may not be the prettiest statue in the city but it certainly has a lot to say ---- apparently!

Pasquino is the most famous of Rome's "talking statues" (the others are Babuino, the Porter, Madame Lucrezia, Abbot Luigi, and Marforio). The statues "talked" to each other when people posted anonymous letters on them, often criticizing the Pope or local big shots. The practice started...More

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
