  • Walked past this huge column on the way back from the Colosseum, the spiral motive on the column is spellbinding, very fascinating. There is a bit of a buzz around this column, but in a nice way. In F...  more »
  • Historical column of Roman origin, it was built in honor of military enterprises of Marcus Aurelius against the Germanic tribes across the Danube. Today is just a few meters away from palazzo Chigi and palazzo Montecitorio.

  • I think this Doric column with spiral reliefs is very nice. This is 39 meters high and it has a lot of great details. The column was erected in honour of Emperor Marcus Aurelius in 180 and reliefs depicting the story of his wars. The statue at the top is the Apostle Paul that is facing the Saint Peter's Basilica in the Vatican.

  • Stunning marble Column, built in 193 AD and still standing at it's original location. Incredible detail in the carvings. There is a spiral staircase of 201 steps leading to the top of the column which is not open to the public. Definitely a must see when wandering the streets of ancient Rome!
  • It's worth the trip if you're going to pantheon, Piazza Navona, or the Spanish steps but not as a standalone attraction. It's extremely tall and really nice to look at it from an architectural perspective.
  • Really superb. Fantastic. Beautiful
  • The history behind the AD 180 Column of Marcus Aurelius on the Piazza Colonna inpressed me. It is a wonderful piece of art with an enormous amount if detail on it. Palazzo Chigi, the official residence of the prine minister and the Galleria Alberto Sordi are also on the Piazza Colonna which is name after the Column.
  • Must see sites! Amazingly there is a stairway in the middle to the top, but not open at this time. This is around 2000 years old and still standing, modern construction can learn a few lessons!
