  • This is an impressive monument to see. Easiest access is via bike or on foot. Rome is completely walkable and bus transportation is pretty good too. There are lots of angles that make memorable...

  • Great spot to tick off many of the must-dos. Mussolini’s balcony, the Spanish steps, the Forum and the Arch are all within walking distance.

  • A must-see for a trip to Rome. Amazing place in the heart of the old town. Surrounded by monuments, basilicas contrasting with beautiful nature. A monumental building showing the power of the Roman Empire. Beautiful decorations, sculptures and views of old Rome and the Vatican. In the background the colosseum. Very clean, you can see that it is an important cultural point of Rome. I recommend that you see it with your own eyes even when passing through Rome.
  • Amazing place surrounded by beautiful other places.
  • The Victor Emmanuel II is a large national monument built between 1885 and 1935 to honour Victor Emmanuel II, the first king of a unified Italy. It occupies a site between the Piazza Venezia and the Capitoline Hill. The piazza is at the foot of the Capitoline Hill and next to Trajan's Forum. The main artery, the Via di Fori Imperiali begins there and leads past the Roman Forum to the Colosseum. Smoke a cigar and enjoy a drink in nearby cafes.
  • it is breathtaking and monumental. definitely worth seeing.
  • As I remember well, there is a 24-hour guard of honor on the memorial staircase. The building also houses several state institutions, including a library, archives, an institute of history and a museum of the Italian National Liberation Movement. Thousands of visitors take turns here every day. Personally, I had to travel here and see the whole building
