Piazza Farnese

Piazza Farnese
  • Giorni Feriali

The piazza is a beautiful, typical Roman square. It is situated just an alley away from the more hectic Campo de' Fiori. In the past, both squares combined to form one large open space. The two fountains at the center of the square were created from granite bathtubs taken from the ancient Baths of Caracalla. Each fountain is crowned with a stone sculpted iris, the symbol of the Farnese family who were responsible for the Farnese Palace that gives the square its name. Source: aviewoncities.com
