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.

  • It is quite a sight in itself but spoiled by the constant traffic. When we were here there was a splendid Christmas tree in the centre. 
  • In this square is always crowded. She is beautiful, like many places in Rome. White Palace with a large staircase, the monument to Victor-Emanuel on a high pedestal. The architectural solution area is impressive.

  • Piazza Venezia, ground zero of the city and where we found the monument to Vittorio Emanuelle. There you will also find the tomb of the unknown soldier. Go up the stairs and you will see a museum with some weapons and artifacts of World War II and at the top you will have a beautiful view of the city. Next to it you will have also the Palazzo Venezia, a National Gallery of art.

  • 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
