I wouldn't go out of my way to get here, but if you are in the area, the piazza has a nice fountain and some interesting ruins nearby.

It is a very small piazza and really the only redeeming feature is that it has a rather nice fountain and two good restaurants on it. Otherwise it is a rather small and rather plain space. Not worth going out of your way for.

Nice, small quiet square near Largo Di Torre Argentina and Ghetto. There is a very nice tortoise fountain in the square.

One of the most beautiful fountains in Rome...and a hidden gem. The "Fontana delle Tartarughe" (The Turtle Fountain) goes back to the late Italian Renaissance. It was built between 1580 and 1588 by the architect Giacomo della Porta and the sculptor Taddeo Landini. The bronze turtles around the upper basin, usually attributed either to Gian Lorenzo Bernini or Andrea Sacchi, were added in either 1658 or 1659 when the fountain was restored. A MUST SEE!!!!!!
