Stayed in Rome on Via del Babunio one block away from this statue. The statue is rather unassuming but definitely a quirky tourist attraction which is over looked by many. That area is a great location from which to explore Rome. Many good restaurants and shops nearby. Very close to the Spanish Steps and Borghese Gardens.
