    Piazza del Popolo is one of the most famous squares in Rome. It is located in the IVth Rione and was since ancient times the place where the visitor entered Rome, when he traveled from the north via the Via Flaminia or the Via Cassia in the city.

    Interestingly, there are different traditions for the name Popolo or the place. First, the name indicates that it was built with the money of the Roman population. On the other hand it reminds of poplars that should have been here in the past. According to another theory, the word 'Popolo' should have nothing to do with the word 'people', but be an old term for a parish.

    Piazza del Popolo is the "people's square" in the middle of Rome. The square is often called "Dreizack" (Tridente), because seen from the north, the square branches into three long straight streets, Via del Corso, Via del Babuino and Via di Ripetta.
    There are various traditions about the origin of the name: It is said that "Popolo" is a reminder of the Roman people who financed this square. Another idea is that the name should come from the poplars that once stood here.
