Complesso del Vittoriano, Rome

(4.2/5 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.

  • One of the 10 things to do in Rome! In addition to the myriad of photographs from taking on the various levels of this impressive work, I recommend that you find the time to take the panoramic lift and dominate the eternal city from above. Stunning images and landscapes at dawn and dusk. Some considerations to support your choice of visit: this is an imperishable monument, which embodies the magnificence of a great State, proclaims the victories of the past and the exploits of its Italian Heroes which is dedicated.

  • This splendid location, which organizes exhibitions constantly, currently is hosting, at the wing Bangladesh works by Giovanni Boldini. The paintings are numerous and leave enchanted by the sophisticated representation of feminine elegance and grace ... So much to be able to combine the movement of some impulsive brushwork with photographic detail care. The exhibition is accompanied by the audio guide, included with your purchase of ticket € 14.00, adequate in relation to the number of works and the artist's level. The exhibition is comprehensively organized about the placement of the paintings. We recommend that you visit it in order to avoid overcrowding, less time slots granted between one work and another.

  • 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.
  • (Mostly) interesting exhibitions.
  • Had a very good time here.
