Piazza Del Popolo, located in close proximity to the Borghese Park and bordered by three churches, is one of the most popular tourist destinations to come to in Rome, Italy. People visit the Piazza Del Popolo to see the striking obelisk brought over to Rome from Heliopolis, Egypt. The destination also boasts spectacular fountains and architecture. You should come with your family. Perhaps, the most structure at Piazza Del Popolo is the obelisk from Egypt. The obelisk used to be in Egypt, but Emperor Augustus liked the structure so much that he had it transported to Rome and placed at the Circus Maximus. Pope Sixtus V had moved to its current located in the square. Other things to do in Rome is to walk around the many beautiful fountains, adorned with statues. Apart from seeing the obelisk, you should visit the Flaminio Fountain, Neptune Fountain, and Fountain of the Goddess of Rome. The list of things to do in Piazza Del Popolo will end when you visit the Santa Maria dei Miracoli and Santa Maria in Montesanto. Pope Alexander VII hired Carlo Rainaldi in 1658 to construct the grand churches. Take your entire family to Piazza Del Popolo or make a plan with your friends.
