Rome in general is very beautiful city! Amazing architecture is everywhere. Here you can feel the power of history and learn a lot. Piazza Venezia is one of the best squares in the city. For sure, you must see it.

The view from the top of this monument is amazing, especially on a clear day. Be careful though, as the elevators are on a set schedule, and there is no shade at the top. It can get very hot in the middle of summer, and you can only wait for the next elevator to get down. Still a super great... More

The Piazza Venezia is located right before the Capitoline Hill, and the Colosseum if coming from the west of Rome. It is beautiful and the building located at its simply breathtaking. I fell in love with Rome and if you have not been don't hesitate any longer and just book that flight already!

Another great square. The grand building in the centre of the square has a viewing platform on the roof which gives one of the best views of the city, it's laid out in front of you like a map with helpful and interesting facts on boards. Standing next to the enormous bronze statues makes you appreciate their beauty and scale... More

It really is impressively large and will easily let you fill a camera with cool pictures, but it isn't anything that I would tell someone to make a special trip to reach. If you're near it for one of the museums then take a swing by (it is very pretty and cool to see the scale of), but don't worry... More

The Piazza Venezia is stunningly beautiful. The marble floors and fire, it's like something from a movie. The statues are hilariously sassy too, they are all posing like a French girl and it's just brilliant.

Piazza Venezia is arguably the main central piazza in Rome, and it is worth seeing if on a visit to the city. It is just 15 minutes walk from the Colosseum and close to the Roman Forum - to find it just follow the sight in the distance of the impressive white marble structure, the Vittorio Emanuelle II Monument which...

Such a bloody gorgeous place! Climb the building (free) for an amazing view of the city. You can pay extra to ride a lift right to the tip. Coming from a relatively 'new' country like NZ, I'm amazed at the beauty and sheer SIZE of such an old landmark. It's more a work of art than a building. Historic, photogenic,... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
