Piazza Indipendenza (Independence Square), Rome

After 1870 the space around Piazza Indipendenza was occupied by the villas of the personalities close to the Royal court of the Italian state. Now this territory is covered by the offices, services and ministries; and only few houses remained from those noble villas (Via Palestro, Via dei Mille).

Close to Termini station in a quiet square, if you come in from Ciampino on the bus you'll see it on the left hand side just before you arrive at Termini. On that side, not to be missed is the Piazza della Republica and the Fontana delle Naiadi.

At the crossing of via delle Quattro Fontane and Via del Quirinale, you have the 4 extra-ordinary sculptures on the 4 street corners; plus a little further down Via delle Quattro Fontane you have the Palazzo Barberini (and the Barberini Museum). If you continue a little further down the Road you will find the Piazza Barberini and the Fontana del Tritone.
