  • I lived in Rome for many years but I visit its beauties now only I live somewhere else! Palazzo Venezia was a discovery, stately salons, empty of furniture but beautiful, I'll also voids of visitors, there were 7/8 people, on Sunday, mah! It is worth also for collection of works on display in the less representation.

  • Little-known Palace as a museum inside since the staircase that leads to the main floor you can see the Majesty ... coming in with their backs to the entrance you begin from the left ... you will find a number of salt ... each room is themed, starting with the formidable passing through the checkered wood Madonnas porcelain Hall and stopping in the room of silver ... continuing through the rooms of bronzes to exit on the porch ... take a walk and returns back covers covers all works ... surely many things I got ... it's as if there were ever passed. Arrived at the entrance drive offers three impressive salons ... without all the furniture but the chandeliers the afresci coffered roof ... THE FLOOR ... pay attention to the last room magnificent ... the mosaic pavement surely removed from. Duce from some villa Rome and reassembled ... watch the last door living room window with mosaic is the balcony where overlooked the Duce ... you will have a unique view of piazza Venezia and the background via Imperial funds is on the horizon the Coliseum ... just so you can see why the choice of that place to talk to the people ... fascist. ... don't jump back and get the garden and beautiful is treated ... exit from San Marco square and visit its next to the Basilica San Marco ... you go out and you are in front of the Victorian ... go for holes or dove ti porta curiosity ... know that piazza Venezia is the kilometer zero ... all roads of ancient Rome .... that's why all roads lead to Rome precisely all roads start from piazza Venezia .... long live Italy and live the eternal beauty of Rome.
