Between the elegant Pincio and the River Tiber and Piazza del Popolo form a huge ellipse. Churches, fountains, monuments, ancient and modern Rome embellish instead.

Since ancient times, the northern entrance of the city formed a vestibule into the city through the gate in the Aurelian Wall. Although now known as the Porta del Popolo, he has had several names over the centuries.

Originally called Porta Flaminia by Emperor Aurelian who ordered its construction in the early medieval period, it was called Porta San Valentino, after the nearest catacomb. Finally, the name of Porta del Popolo was agreed as the church adjoining the door of Santa Maria del Popolo.

Piazza del Popolo was even known as the Piazza del Trullo in the Middle Ages, from the conical fountain that was in the center of the square, reminiscent of a South Italian dwelling characteristic. Its current name is possibly due to poplar, known in Latin 'populus' that also meant people a apt association as various public events such as fairs, games and dramatic performances were held there.

For centuries, the Piazza del Popolo was a public fountain, a trough and a cistern for washerwomen. It was Sixtus V in 1589, which turned his attention instead. The Trullo fountain, under the supervision and execution of Domenico Fontana, was to be replaced by the Egyptian obelisk of Ramses II, second in age and height as that of San Giovanni, originally brought to the city by Emperor Augustus, and placed in Circus Maximus.

Transport and installation on the Piazza del Popolo gave a more majestic air, less domestic. Four lions pools of water were added to the obelisk in 1823, during the reign of Pope Leo XII.

The next event was the arrival of Queen Christina of Sweden. Wishing to convert to Catholicism, she arrived in Rome in 1655, to a splendid home: from the North, his first vision was the Porta del Popolo.

Bernini was responsible for restoring the interior façade of the old door in preparation for his arrival. A plaque was placed on top of the arc, reading: 'FELICI FAUSTOQUE INGRESSUI MDCLV' (For a Happy input and Conducive) which remains to this day. His entrance was so 'happy' that never left Rome.

Towards the end of the seventeen hundreds, in the middle of the Napoleonic invasion, the ever-increasing stream of visitors and pilgrims descending on Rome by the Porta del Popolo, motivated the decision to modernize instead.

Until in the eighteenth century, the square has a trapezoidal shape that converged toward the door. During the Napoleonic era, the French prefect, Tournon, was head of the "Commission of embellishments" in Rome.

He commanded Valadier, a Roman architect to redesign the Piazza del Popolo, what he did was a surprising effect. Work began in 1816 until 1824 and hard the first time since the French occupation, the prisoners have not been used for work.

The project had to take into account the significant existing buildings: three churches, Santa Maria del Popolo, Santa Maria di Montesanto (St. Mary of Montesanto), Santa Maria dei Miracoli (Saint Mary of Miracles), the obelisk, Porta del Popolo and Via del Corso, which was to remain intact.

The lateral structures were replaced by spacious porticos. They supported the Neptune fountain between two newts, and the Goddess Roma on each side, added in 1823 during the reign of Pope Leo XII. Instead became then accessible from one side to the other, so that each end.

With a touch of genius, the square was connected to the park on the hill above a staircase leading down from the Pincio hill. Piazza del Popolo was the last contribution of the Pope to the legendary architecture of Rome, and in many ways reflects its splendor, inspiring a sense of fear in the visitor.

Stressing that supremacy, the three churches dedicated to the Virgin, surrounded by the obelisk, which in ancient times was dedicated to the pagan sun god.

Very nice stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay in the colourful and spacy apartment in the villa, including breakfasts and nice afternoon drinks on the leafy terrace/garden. Good location: off main tourist trails, yet close to everything. Many thanks to the helpful owner Elisabeth and her kind team.

Artist gem in the heart of Rome

  • 5 of 5

Our adult son and my husband and I spent 10 glorious nights in Elizabeth's vrbo. Rome is a city of beauty and history and this rental extends the beauty to your living space. The tile work and furnishing are lovely, and the beds comfortable. We are lovers of books and art and our only regrets that we couldn't access the incredible Italian book collection. What a gift to be surrounded by books and art. If there is one other regret is that we couldn't enjoy the cool Mediterranean night breezes because sleeping with the shutters open was a bit noisy. Elizabeth was an attentive host and we would highly recommend this rental.

Comfortable - Quiet and safe - Great Location - Charming

  • 5 of 5

This colorful villa was our oasis for our 11 day stay in Rome! ... Ideally located just 10 minutes from Piazza del Poppolo, and the Borghese gardens. Our hosts Liz and Marc recommended some great restaurants, and their villa was well stocked with maps and guide books on Rome.

Thoroughly Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the apartment of Marc and Elisabeth was an absolute pleasure! It started even before we arrived. Marc arranged for us to be picked up by Maurizo at the airport, and taken directly to the apartment which was extremely useful. It was much more convenient and much less difficult to get to our Rome “home” in this manner. We were met by the housekeeper Celine who showed us everything that we needed to know and made a few suggestions for getting around the area, she was wonderful. Maurizo also took us back to the airport, again arranged by Marc and very convenient as we were picking up a car at the airport for the next leg of our trip.

The apartment itself was fabulous. It was everything that we expected from the listing, it could not have been better. The main bedroom was very comfortable, and our two boys enjoyed the space in the second bedroom. Having the two bathrooms also provides flexibility when 4 people share the apartment. The shower was adequate, and plenty of hot water. Having laundry available was a huge plus. We did not need to pack too much for our extended stay. The time that we stayed there the weather was quite hot, having an air conditioned home to come back to after a full day of sightseeing was a real pleasure! We also felt very secure; the apartment is inside a walled and gated compound, with an additional very secure front door for the apartment. We did not have any concerns about security.

The location was also very nice. We were 5 minutes away from bus and tram lines to the Vatican, Piazza del Popolo, and the Colosseum and Forum. Getting around was very easy. I will say that there were not many restaurants right around the apartment, but we weren’t spending the evenings there anyway, we were in other parts of Rome.

Overall, we could not have been happier with our stay. We would certainly recommend this apartment to anyone who was looking for a good place to stay in Rome and the hosts are extremely helpful and accommodating.

Comfortable & Spacious

  • 5 of 5

We're very glad we chose to stay here. We were with our 2 adult daughters and there was plenty of room for all of us. The apartment is lovely and we especially enjoyed sitting out in the private courtyard and having a glass of wine. There are 2 bathrooms, but only 1 has a full shower (which is very tight). The kitchen had everything we needed. There is even a washing machine. Lisy (the host) is very gracious and helpful. She arranged transportation to and from the airport for us which made things much easier for us.The neighborhood is about a 10 minute walk from Piazza Popolo and quiet. We would love to stay here again when we return to Rome.
