The area
Neighbourhood: Aventine
Contrary to the chaos of the city, the Aventine is Rome’s oasis. A neighbourhood made up of a patchwork of ancient churches, hidden gardens, private homes and embassies, peace and quiet is top priority and the vibe definitely friends and family. Take a walk around the Aventine and you’ll find a treasure hunt of surprises like the clever little keyhole at the Knights of Malta entrance (the only place you’ll find a line) along with Parco Savello (Giardino degli Aranci) next to the ancient Santa Sabina church. Keep your eyes on the 1960s architecture, several modern buildings are built atop Rome’s original 4th century BC wall.

Piazza della Bocca della Verita / Rome
Jun 2019
A picturesque roman square with very ancient temples, the temple of Fortuna Virile, in a greek-italian architecture, and the temple of Vesta; in the middle of the little park is a nice fountain, banks to have a sit and you feel to be in ancient times in Rome;
on the other side of the road is the famous Bocca della Verita; ( merit absolutely a visit)

Ancient Temple
Aug 2019 • Couples
Ancient roman temples near the Tiber River composing a bucolic landscape between the traffic of Roman. It is worth stopping a few minutes to enjoy the view.

Small Piazza near the Tiber River
Mar 2019 • Couples
I walked through this Piazza and noticed the ruins of a couple temples in a little park and across the street I saw the line outside the Basilica di Santa Maria in Cosmedin. If I had gotten into that line I might have been able to see the stone mask called the The Mouth of Truth (Bocca della Verita) which stands against the left wall of the portico of the Santa Maria in Cosmedin church. It is a pleasant little Piazza but with a couple of busy roads in it.

Important Piazza in Ancient Times
May 2019 • Solo
As I was strolling around this area, I could almost imagine the economically strategic importance of it around 100 AD. It must have been close to docks at the Tiber river and would have been a very busy Port of Trade. There would have been constant loading and unloading of goods entering and leaving Ancient Rome, on ships pulled up at the docks. I would guess the area has gone through so many modifications through the years, it’s difficult to picture it in 100 AD.

A Lovely Quiet Square
Apr 2019 • Couples
The Piazza della Bocca della Verita feels like a real distance away from the Piazza dei Trevi or Piazza Navona, it is quiet, feels somewhat personal and not full of people. Located right next to the Bocca della Verita statue it is easily accessible from the Circus Maximus area and is closely located to the Tiber.

Worth a stop if you have extra time but is not a must see!

Fun to Go with Kids
Jun 2018
Fun place to go and take pictures with kids. Lines were long but moved quickly in June. However, they have a strict closing time of 5:50 and if you aren't inside the gated area before that they turn you away.

Who does not remember seeing this in an old movie. Putting your hand in is a great experience. Just imagine the thousands of people who have done some. Stop by when visiting the roman forum, etc.

Small and Unique Piazza
Apr 2018 • Couples
It's quite a small piazza. Outside of the Church of Santa Maria, it has the famous Mouth of Truth disk. Across the piazza are two ancient temples. All of it is near the River Tiber. We stayed at the 47 Hotel and it is just one block from there and short walk around the corner to Circus Maximus. Highly recommended.

A must see
May 2018 • Business
There was a short lineup when we arrived and were able to take great pictures. No entry fee, so we donated some euro. After you enter a church. If you have a short skirt/shorts you will be required to cover yourself with a scarf they lend you for respect to the church and altar. There was a mass going 9n. You drop the scarf on a basket in the way out.
Love this !!!

Home to the mouth of truth, that iconic scene from Roman Holiday. Be prepared to wait in line for a while
