Palazzo Venezia, Rome

3.9
#26 of 99 in Museums in Rome
Gain perspective on Venice's history from the 15th century to the present day with a visit to Palazzo Venezia, a fascinating structure facing Piazza Venezia. The building originally served as a home for cardinals of the church of San Marco and was later used by the Italian government for many years. In fact, this structure functioned as the office of Mussolini; its balcony is recognized as the spot where he gave many famous speeches. As you approach, enjoy views of the beautiful facade from the piazza, then tour the national museum housed inside.

    I put 1 out of 5, because 0 out of 5 I can't put. Are on a field trip with the family to visit Rome and in our path we had entered the Palazzo Venezia. Today, Wednesday, August 16 (opening day on the web), we have unfortunately discovered that was not open. The Lady at the reception said that having been open on Monday (closed on the web), today would be closed. Recommend it to anyone visiting the Palace to call to make sure the opening.

    After visiting castel Sant'Angelo we also visited the palazzo venezia, despite it not in our programs, as the entrance fee was cumulative. We were pleasantly surprised at the beauty of the building, the Museum and the exhibition on Gandhi really well built and appreciable even by incompetents like us.

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.
