Once a Roman circus, Piazza Venezia is now one of the city's busiest thoroughfares and historic centers. Visit the square to admire Il Vittoriano. This massive, pantheon-style marble monument is dedicated to Vittorio Emanuele II, united Italy's first king. Climb to the top for a different vantage point of the plaza's architecture. Visit the Palazzo Venezia, constructed in the 15th century by future Pope Paul II, as well as the 1,900-year-old Trajan's column, a Roman victory monument. The square is a major traffic intersection, so be careful when crossing the streets.

  • Piazza Venezia is unfurtunately a somehow neglected sight of Rome. But with the Vittoriano, the Venetian palazzi (and the typical Roman traffic ;) )it is Italy at its best. When in Rome, plan some tim...  read more »
  • Rome is full of places and this is one of the most well known, but not the pretty, because it is too large, with many cars, disordered media. Not as typical of Roma, which are surrounded by pastel-colored buildings and with musicians or artists. This is a huge square, there is also the ugly monument Vitorio Emanuelle.

  • This was definitely one of my favorites in Rome, such beautiful structure! From a distance it's amazing but when you get up close its breathtaking! You can go inside, and I recommend you do. It's free so don't worry! Also, (don't sit on the steps, you'll have a guard blowing his whistle and yelling at you!)

  • Grandiose monument and mostly free to visit. If you want to go all the way to the top you have to pay a fee. For some reason they don't allow sitting on the stairs, so it's quite funny to see officials blowing whistles at tourists :)
  • We did not go inside as they were doing maintenance and I am not even sure you can go inside however just looking at the sheer size and magnificence of this building is just jaw dropping... If you are going to Rome it is hard not to drive or walk past this as it is quite central.... But if you are not near... It is definitely worth a visit even just to see it ... wow.
  • Just to the right of this Piazza and left of the big marble building is a very nice place to sit and read or eat under the shade of the trees. We spent a lot of time hanging around here reading. Also temples and museums to visit opposite the Piazza.
