Piazza Venezia, Rome

(4.5/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Unbelievable, what a fantastic architecture. Here really created a masterpiece. An absolute must for a Rome trip. Be sure to look at. Also at night!

  • A wonderful site! Impressed by the beauty, for details. Always full of tourists, a compulsory passage for who goes through Rome.

  • Where did the Victorian Café?? I discovered it last year in February, visiting the Victorian and had promised to go back again this year! It's February and I kept prommessa but with my huge disappointment the cafeteria is divided. Or rather remained a pile of disused equipment and banner stacks up, set aside in a corner. It was very special space and prices were in line with what I expected ... and then you want to read a good book while sipping hot tea with Rome as company?!?! My vote?? Excellent ... only there was still:(

  • Amazing monument! It is amazingly big and beautiful. Full of architectural details and a great place to go up to take a look at the city. Definitely a place to go!
  • What a sight to behold! Everything about Rome is amazing and this is definitely in my top 10 sights to visit. Love the huge grand building and the view from the top. Recommend to go both in the day and night to get different feels of this grandeur!
  • What a beautiful place from the outside. In the inside you'll a museum and exhibitions. However what really took my by surprise was right at the top, the elevator takes right to the top, where you find yourself on the terrace with a 360 view over the old & new city, you can even see the coliseum.
  • Just wow. The size and the atmosphere is amazing. The only way to describe it is grand. I am amazed at how well rome preserves it's history. Very clean and well kept.
  • It was really beautiful. It's even better from all movies and pictures you may saw before. Amazing
