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.

  • Piazza Venezia may sometimes look like a traffic island, but it has an incredible history at the centre of Roman life. Here you can see traces of many eras from Ancient Rome, through Michelangelo and Mussolini to the Modern age. It's worth reading up on the history to truly understand the importance of this place.
  • Piazza Venezia is huge. With its spacious space, huge structure and large steps it makes you feel about the royal lifestyle if ancient Rome. It is at centre of Rome everything is nearby colosseum, market, and restaurants. I definitely recommend walking to the top to enjoy the view. It's free to visit and you will enjoy your time here.
  • What a beautiful and amazing place. The Colosseum can be seen in the distance, Roman ruins are everywhere and the magnificent memorial building takes centre stage. It's nice to sit, have a drink and listen to the street musicians and watch the day go by. Get there early in the morning and you have the place to yourself apart from the commuters.
  • Totally awesome and breathtaking, among exciting and beautiful. You will certainly return to this location over and over. The surroundings are full of a variety of unlimited shopping and places to dine and wine, it can get pretty crowded, but nevertheless you’re experience total enjoyment. You must visit the wax museum while in the area.
  • This very scenic, grand and beautiful place. This is one of the guarded place in Rome. There is a bus stop just across the road and also a metro station not too far making it well reachable. There is no entry fee. The only challenge is crossing the road from the bus stop. There is no footbridge or underpass for walkers. Parking your own vehicle is impossible here.
