  • Presides over the square of San Giovanni and the Obelisk is more high of Rome and the more large stand of ancient Egyptian obelisks in the world. It was brought from the Temple of Karnak and led to the Circus Maximus where collapsed and spent many years in 3 parts buried until it was moved next to the Lateran Basilica embossing square where you will find the North facade of the Basilica, only its grandeur is worth a visit

  • the nearby Lateran University prides itself on this place that represents the beauty and good use of Roman art.

  • Knowing that it is the highest and most ancient obelisk and that he removed illegally from Egypt to Rome, I do not think that it is correctly installed on the walls of the main Catholic Cathedral of San Giovanni in Laterano and beside the Holy staircase, ksttati, too removed from Jerusalem. It would be necessary to return to their homeland. This is my opinion. Who it might be different.

  • It's the biggest standing Egyptian obelisk in the world. bigger than one in the Vatican City.
  • Did not know it's the largest standing ancient Egyptian obelisk in the world and also the tallest obelisk in Italy. Very cool to see in person
  • Beautiful place with lots of visitors
  • Biggest Obelisk in the world and Italy? Interesting to see. Most people may walk last and not know what it is. It was a marker for the ancient Egyptians. Take some time and stare at this structure, just know that it was brought from Egypt
  • Do you know how many obelisco are in Rome? Here is one of them.

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.
