Around this square there are several interesting things - the mouth of the truth, the Santa Maria church in Kosmedin and an ancient small forum with two temples in it. To see the 'mouth of truth' should be waiting in line.

We arrived here early (10am) and the line was already walked out and down. We waited for 30 minutes and finally had enough. Not really worth going over for. If you are on a fast paced city visit, this place is a time-sucker and not...More

Have seen the Bocca Della Verita in many movies and it was a great, fun way to see it in real life- although there can be a small 20 minute line up and a 2 Euro fee, it was well worth it.... Enjoyed the experience...More

I visited here while walking to see the Circus Maximus. It's situated just down from the Teatro di Marcello and can be found in the basilica of Santa Maria in Cosmedin. It's thought that previously the mouth acted as a drain cover and was famously...More

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
