Complesso del Vittoriano, Rome

4.3
#7 of 100 in Museums in Rome
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

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.

  • EDWARD HOPPER 2016. Great exhibition with many Hopper pictures. Audio guide and nice small information boards. BOTERO 2017. Beautiful exhibition.
  • I have seen the Edward Hopper and Antonio Ligabue exhibitions. Audio guide gave me much info and helped me having special insights of the American artist. Great exhibitions but lacking some iconic paintings of Hopper career. Ligabue was quite a surprising discover.
  • A space used for for-profit cultural exhibitions arranged by the Arthesmisia Group. I saw the Edward Hopper exibition. 14 euros, which included the audio guide, for 60 charming, minor works by the American painter. They were all lent by the Whitney who received them as part of Hopper'swifes bequest of 3,000 works. The Whitney can't hang all these in New York do might as well make a show out of them. Good production values Well lit and labeled. Courteous staff. Bathroom not that clean. Stairs involved in seeing this.
  • Very nice exhibitions, well organised with free audioguide.
  • Had a very good time here.
