  • It is a monument in the Roman Forum. In Japan, is known as the column of Phocas. To honor the Emperor Phocas, erected in the Centre of Rome. I think this column only at one stand straight so easily attaches with other pillars.

  • Erected in 608AD, as a singular, freestanding monument, this column was the last addition to the Roman Forum. It remains today in the same place as erected and is a well known landmark, located close ...  more »
  • Certainly the Byzantine Phokas, Emperor from 602-610, is not remembered positively, it is known as "the usurper", for taking out his rival the Emperor Maurice. At the center of the hole there is this symbol of Byzantine imperial power, about 14 meters, erected the August 1 608, on top of which there was a gilded statue of Phocas which was destroyed almost immediately. In fact in October 610, Phocas was captured, tortured and dismembered. To see!

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
