St. Louis, Missouri

Getting to the Mouth of Truth is fairly easy, and the piazza houses several other interesting ancient structures. The piazza is less than a mile’s walk from Piazza Venezia, and it is impossible to miss if you walk along the river from the island. The trip is scenic and only slightly off of the usual tourist route, so it can be a nice break from the crowds. Particularly if you’re one of those people who wants to actually touch the ancient art pieces you see all over Rome, this spot is for you – not only are there no security guards telling you to keep your hands off, but you’re expected to have a hands-on experience. It’s a chance to literally reenact history, not to mention get a fun picture at the same time.
