Piazza Venezia, Rome

4.5
#16 of 459 in Historic Sites in Rome
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.

  • There are already featured building on this square and the many car traffic that exists here to almost any time of day to a large extent, but apparently running smoothly earned almost even more admiration. Should you have taken in any case during a visit to Rome.

  • And where stands the monument to Vittorio Emanuele II first King of the reunified Italy. This enormous building houses the Museum of the Risorgimento the highlight of the place are the panoramic views you'll see from their top floors.

  • It's a huge square open to traffic. It's kind of difficult to walk from one end to the other but it is very convenient in order to reach Trajan forum and the column. There is a magnificent palace in one of the main sides of the square. It is kind of a pitty the contemporary buildings located in the square as well as the intense light at night of the spotlights pointing at some advertising areas
  • It a most visit site in Rome. Though more younger than most of the historic sites around. This has just got a charm of its own. Some parts are open for visit. I loved the beautiful view from the top. Just be side the basilica looking down through the city.
  • Beautiful architecture. Several museums are located there. One can go up the stairs and through the right passage, you will get to a lookout on the Roman forum and the coluseum. Also, for a small price, one can get up on the roof to one of the best lookouts in the city.
  • Wonderful area. Lots to do and see. Lots of great places to eat too
  • As much as the square is nice this is not what you want to spend your time on.. all the reviews i read on here is NOT about the square but rather on the monument next to it which is beautiful and if you don't mind pay the extra 10€ go to the roof and you will see the entire rome in front of you.
