The Esquilino neighborhood is full of many Rome Hotels because of its close proximity to Termini. But it is also a vibrant neighborhood that is quickly becoming one of the hippest neighborhoods in Rome, with an international flavor and a lot of activity.
Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II is the center of the quarter, with a park in the center and surrounded by monumentally-scaled residential and commercial buildings. For a unique shopping experience, visit the Magazzino allo Statuto store there. There are many beautiful churches in the Esquilino district – the most famous is Santa Maria Maggiore, and Santa Croce in Gerusalemme and San Giovanni In Laterano are at the other end of the via Merulana. In between, there is the Museo Nazionale dell’Arte Orientale, showing a notable collection of Asian art, and the interesting Ex Acquario Romano, a former aquarium that sometimes is a venue for art exhibitions.
Even if your hotel in Rome is not on the Esquiline Hill, consider eating in an authentic Roman restaurant in the neighborhood, or explore the neighborhood for lots of international cuisine possibilities.

Lovely deep strong colours, very vibrant. Nicely composed as you're images always are and I like how you've positioned the road. Interesting choice of perspective on the building from the back.
Have a nice evening,

nice use of light and shade to invite, create depth, and tantalise. Love the warm tones and the intrigue of this shot it entices the viewer to see what lies over the hill. A perfect execution and presentation.
Regards - Brian.

Salut daniel, imi place imaginea asta. Strada e in umbra iar cladirile sunt expuse. Cel putin cea din stanga. Foarte bine realizat, k de obicei.

Another good one from Poma Daniel. I stayed in that area last time I was in Rome. Maybe you could have cropped out a bit of the dark road at the base of the photo (maybe up to the first car?).

nice the creative perspective of this section of the road of Esquilino neighborhood.I like the buildings that cover the sides of the road as other on the backdrop of the scene.
Have a good day,Danos

I knew immediately it was yours(very much your style) and...I knew it must be Rome.Just love these warm coloured facades,which give Rome so special character.Excellently captured with so nice looking play of light&shade.

A good upward pov with a wonderful warm cold colour contrast between the yellow, blue and orange. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the parked vehicles. Excellent sharpness and shadow detail.

The slope of the narrow street leads us excellent toward the church tower in background. .
A nice city image, with excellent depth and perspective.
Excellent captured, lovely panoramic composed.
Very well done, TFS.
