Piazza Venezia, Rome

(4.5/5 based on 2,400+ 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.

  • Amazing place that must be seen when visiting Rome. If you have the chance go by lift at the top of the building. Not expensive and the view is amazing.  more »
  • Located at the end of the shopinf street, via del corso, this piazza is one of the most beautiful in Rome. Big in size and great in details with so many tourists passing through. Just 10 minutes walk ...  more »
  • A grandiose, imposing, square in the heart of Rome! Beside the forums and close to the Colosseum! It is called wedding cake, teeth... because if you look has a resemblance! Right in front is the via del Corso, one of the main avenues of Rome, full of shops, with enough traffic, and at the end of this, is the Piazza del Popolo.

  • 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
