Piazza Venezia, Rome

(2,400+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area Landmark
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.

  • Wonderful and historical structures. A lot of historical sites nearby. Difficult to find good food and be careful with those people dressed up as roman soldiers. They will snatch you to have pictures with them and ask you to pay 15euros after.
  • It was a holiday when we visited this area, and so they closed down the roads and we were able to stroll along the Roman Forum and see this grand spectacle! We weren't able to go inside but the view from the outside was glorious! In the middle is the statue of Vittorio Emmanuel, with two Italian Flags raised on the sides! It looked TRULY Italian from every angle.
  • Love this place! Amazing views, don't forget to feed seagulls ;) museums are free of charge. You can pay 7€ and get on the very top of the building ;)
  • What a view. When travelling to the Colosseum, we discovered the Piazza Venezia. Breathtaking at both first glance and up close. We adored the high quality work on the masonry, the heart put in to each sculpture, the tenacity of the honour guard and the view of the busy square below us as we climbed the stairs towards the museum. There's good places to eat and drink close by, whether it's for a simple snack or a full meal. Thanks for having us, Rome!
  • A very beautiful square in Rome. U can imagine of an antic city if you walk around here.
