Complesso del Vittoriano, Rome

4.2
#8 of 150 in Museums in Rome
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.

  • Adverts for the exhibition appear all over Rome. We decided to drop in and find out for ourselves. Loved the sculptures and finding out more about the artist. Worth a half hour visit.  more »
  • It is conspicuously in the region around buildings. Pretty huge. Will not fit into the camera from near. Best beautiful lit up at night is beautiful, but still in the sun bathed in light, bright white appearance. I can't go up on the roof to have time again, next time take a look at views from the rooftop to explore.

  • Council boarding with panoramic lift to the plane of the chariots: the views of Rome is spectacular. There are also signs that indicate all visible monuments very useful X identify them! Lift ticket a bit pricey (7 euros) but well worth it

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.
