  • The palazzo della civiltà italiana, we Romans called E42 or square Colosseum was restored beautifully thanks to Fendi. Splendid Palace, grand staircase, imposing statues (I dislike the term but impressive testimony) beautiful exhibition of works by Giuseppe Pennone. A really nice experience.

  • This unique building is the major attraction in EUR, the site that Mussolini built for the 1942 World's Fair that never happened. Now the fashion house, Fendi, owns it and there was a nice art exhibit...  more »

  • The impressive building, especially when the arched shadows occurs. Exhibition of museum inside not so interesting.
  • Well known as "Colosseo Quadrato". Beautiful example of classic italian architecture of the first 20 years of 1900. Great view on susnset
  • I like this place but couldn't find any information easily about how to visit it or if it's open to the public or not. I walk up and it's barricaded and clearly not open to public. Seems there is a lot of confusion on the Italian tourism sites on what you can visit and what you just view from afar. This is something you walk by and take a photo, and then read a bit about the history. Was built during Mussolini era for the 1942 World Fair and is a prime example of Fascist style architecture. It really stands out in EUR area and In Rome overall. Locals call it the square colosseum.
  • nice architecture. rather inaccessible and recently bought by private owners. close to the tube station EUR Magliana. uncharacteristically romantic
  • Architecture is amazing! Loved the art display!

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.
