Esquilino, the area near Termini Central Station, was named after Esquiline, one of the Seven Hills of Rome. It has several museums, and Santa Maria Maggiore, one of the four papal basilicas of Rome, is its beacon. The mosaics of Santa Prassede are also worth visiting, as is the Casa dell’Architettura, an exhibition space focused on architecture. The Nuovo Mercato Esquilino market is located behind Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II, the multicultural heart of the neighborhood. Ice cream parlor Fassi is renowned for its gelato and classic interior. Come here to indulge in their ice cream specialties, such as sampietrini: frozen "cobblestones".
