Photographer's Note

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.
