Piazza della Repubblica

The Piazza della Repubblica is just a few hundred metres from Termini station and was once home to the huge Baths of Diocletian, whose surviving exedra gave the original name to the square (Piazza dell’Esedra).

In the centre, stands a large fountain named after the four Naiads, or water nymphs, which decorate its sides. Also on the piazza, is the facade of the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli and the square is the starting point of one of the city’s main streets, the Via Nazionale.
