Travel Tuesday: A Definitive Ranking of Rome’s Piazzas

The piazza is an inherently Roman institution. They’re not at the top of tourist destination lists, but to not spend an afternoon lazing around a piazza (just an Italian word for "square") during your trip to Rome would be a disservice. The piazzas are where you realize what being Italian is all about! Take a walk, grab an afternoon espresso or gelato, crack open that new book or newspaper and wait. Soon enough, everyone else in town will be joining you, on their same piazza break. While you learn how to laze like a local, though, you can still get some amazing photos out of it to post on your Instagram. Here are the best piazzas in Rome -- vote your favorites to the top!
