Piazza del Popolo, one of the most spectacular Roman squares.  
On the right side, close to the walls, is the church of Santa Maria del Popolo. Standing over the square are the two twin churches of Santa Maria in Montesanto  and Santa Maria dei Miracoli. On the left side is via del Babuino, along which are numerous antique shops. ParalleI to this street is the renowned via Margutta that, mostly in the past, was one of the most important centers of the Roman cultural life, thanks to the several artist studios. Via del Babuino gets to Piazza di Spagna
On the square, and in its vicinity, are still to be seen historic cafés such as Babington and, at the beginning of Via Condotti, the Greek Café. 
At the center of the square is the Barcaccia dominated by the spectacular Scalinata di Trinitŕ dei Monti. The next stop is via Veneto, a renowned street of modem Rome,  a privileged setting forthe “Dolce vita”, the unforgettable film by Federico Fellini. You go down towards Piazza Barberini. At the center is the renowned Fountain of the Triton.
Announced by the roaring of the jets of water, Fountain of Trevi stands out sud­denly, matching the simple and elegant fa­cade, with the arch of triumph in the middle. Here the water runs and creates a myriad of glares.
