Complesso del Vittoriano, Rome

(4.3/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
The largest monument ever to be constructed entirely of white marble, the structure at Complesso del Vittoriano was at first a point of contention. A medieval neighborhood had to be destroyed before the monument could be built. The majestic emblem, dedicated to the first king of unified Italy, was completed in 1925 and occupies a central point between the Piazza Venezia and Capitoline Hill. It embodies the classic school of Italian sculpture, with fountains, Corinthian columns, and statues of the goddess Victoria. The museum is at the base of the monument's pillars. Victorian houses that are part of the structure feature exhibits showcasing individual artists. Lockers are provided near the entrance. A visit to the rooftop garden will give you real appreciation of the Rome with no entrance fee.

  • There are different ways to treat this place and even giving him name-calling. And I like the Vittoriano complex without nuances, I think its one of the main attractions in Rome and the decoration of the city. Saw him once again, everyone enjoyed it. In General, it is probably the most beautiful spot in Rome (including the nearby Forum).

  • I went back to the Victorian this time to visit it in its structure. Various terraces are beautiful, they show you various floors overlooking Rome, one better than the other (I'm undecided whether the overlook the holes or to the Capitoline museums). The statue of vittorio emanuele's scary up close, so huge and perfectly made, beautiful view in full Majesty of the character. Beautiful inside too bad the Museum of flags was closed, that partisan and the elevator towards the terrace of quadrilles were charges despite it being the first Sunday of the month where the Victorian entrance is free (I understand everything but 7 euros to use the elevator and climb on the terrace is exaggerated). These items I was kinda disappointed. Attention then on the terraces, gulls as if there were no tomorrow

  • Display rich and well structured. Audio guides included. Welcoming spaces, with the works placed consistently and effectively. Appreciated the opportunity to take pictures without flash. Absolutely recommended.
