  • Erected in 193 by the Emperor Commodus in honor of his father's victories, the monument using as a model the Trajan column, the result is substantially different. In 1589 at the top was placed the statue of Saint Paul.

  • Absolutely stunning piece of artwork. Its nice because you can get pretty close to it to see the incredible details in the column and there aren't nearly as many tourists as you see at most monuments in Rome. Definitely worth walking by and around to get a good look at it.
  • This amazing column was finished in 193 in honor of Marco Aurelius! So impressive to see and not a crowded place.

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.
