  • Wonderful piece of history. Worth seeing.
  • An absolute incredible column, with a lot of very well done battle scenes sculpted/carved in the rock of the column
  • Another worthwhile visit in the city of Rome, the historic column is still quite beautiful to this day.
  • The Trajan's Column is like no other to me: such a History book that has to compensate the lack of information on Dacian wars. I felt very happy for being able to be here.
  • Historic, definitely worth seeing.
