Piazza San Silvestro is unlike many other piazzas, in that it lacks a ... fountain! It is largish in size, by Italian standards, and it has several spots where people can actually sit and have a rest! It seems to be rather quiet at times,...More

I lost count of the number of times we stopped in this piazza. Most of the time we visited it was bathed in sunshine. A lovely place to stop and get ones bearings.

Gerard personally met us and helped size and fit for me a beautiful soft lamb moto - style jacket; husband got soft shearling gloves... a huge huge selection of all colors and sizes. Very patient with our questions and well worth our time.

This used to be a bus hub, but was recently changed into a pedestrian only piazza. So, it is certainly a lot nicer than it used to be! There are several churches in the area worth seeing -- San Silvestro in Capite being right on...More

Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos,
goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross
paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the
