il tridente

{early morning romance}

The three roads that fork out of the Piazza del Popolo are referred to as the 'trident.'

The central Via del Corso runs south-west all the way to Piazza Venezia, can you see the monument in the far distance? Via Ripetta, to the right of the twin churches, ends in Piazza Augusto Imperatore, near the Ara Pacis. Via del Babuino, to the left, will take you to the Spanish Steps in Piazza di Spagna.

I was here early this morning, and the grey sky, sparsly populated square and these young lovers entwined in a sweet kiss, set the mood to this otherwise busy and majestic piazza to "very romantic."


  1. Great photographs Eleonora.

  2. Love this piazza. Wife an I were there in 2006 during La Notte Bianca. The obelisk was surrounded by scaffolding and banners. That was a fun evening and have similar photos, but your photos are picture perfect.

  3. Both shots are great and the piazza is awesome!

  5. So romantic place romantic kiss :)
