The Piazza della Repubblica in Rome is a large semi-circular plaza on which The Fountain of the Naiads can be found. It is the first of the plazas in Rome to greet visitors, due to its proximity to the Termini train station. The plaza is striking for its curved palaces and arcades (designed by Gaetano Koch) and both Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri and St. Regis are nearby.
This was the first piazza I stepped into while in Italy – it was so quintessentially European that it took my breath away.
