Piazza Venezia, Rome

4.5
#16 of 255 in Historic Sites in Rome
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.

  • Beautiful square, opposite the Emanuelle and early Victorian Street Del Corso (shopping street). Backwards to Emanuelle and Victorian people the square on the right side has a shop (in the principal Street) of children's toys-Little Big Town.

  • We went several times through this place, because any tour that boasts, passes through the plaza and they teach you from the bus. We didn't want to leave without visit it on foot, pes called us much attention. Did not disappoint us all. At the base of your stairs already shown wingspan, which according to go climbing will be aware of its true size. There is the statue in honor to King Victor Manuel. To be aware of the size, the foot of the King, measuring more than one metre (that told us a guide. You can see the skyline of Rome, without having to climb on the lift, which is worth a curious money. It is a must-see in Rome, and that at least as us us strike pleasantly. Admission is free, with the exception of the use of the lift, which I do not recommend it for anything. It is curious, that just before entering a security guard, he informs you that it is forbidden to sit on the steps.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
