When you visit this piazza I would suggest afternoon, or the late evening. In the afternoon there is a little sandwich shop close by that offers excellent sandwich to eat on the steps of the Pantheon. If you visit in the evening, get a gelato...More

The Pantheon is the main reason to visit Piazza della Rotunda in Rome. However, another interesting monument to see in the centre of this piazza is the Egyptian obelisk known as Macuteo, this is one of many ancient Egyptian obelisks on display around the city....More

The plaza is actually defined by its proximity to the Pantheon and to a delightful Baroque creation of a fanciful fountain. The plaza is nothing unusual or particularly noteworthy otherwise. The interest for us was how a 20 foot tall, red marble obelisk from one...More

If you have time to kill, go. Otherwise, not a must see. It sits right outside the pantheon which again, is over crowded. Beware of street vendors attempting to sell bracelets or other things. I personally found it a bit dirty, didn't really care for...More

It’s in a good location adjacent to the Pantheon but it’s surrounded by over-priced food places and very busy.

Rome has so many wonderful squares filled with lots of cozy cafes and pizzerias. This square is located directly across from the Pantheon so it was on our way. I would have to say that compared to the other squares in Rome, this one did...More

As with so many of Rome's wonderful squares, when we arrived at the Piazza della Rotonda opposite the Pantheon, there was a sea of people enjoying themselves - some sitting almost up against the fountain, some kids running around, tourist families orienting themselves and deciding...More

We always stay in the quiet Piazza Monte Citorio but, never fail to enjoy walking down an looking around Piazza Rotunda. Yes it's 'tourist central', crowded and bustling, but it's great fun. Yes the Pantheon is there (you cant miss it!) and there's a fountain...More

In addition to being a place to view the Pantheon, you can also see the fountain and the street performers. They are actually quite entertaining and adds to the whole experience of being at the Pantheon.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa

It really depends the type of place you stay in. I stayed in a lovely small hotel about 4 doors down for about 200AUD a night
