This site is amazing, with beautiful buildings all around. Furthermore its the path down to the coliseum. You can walk around the Roman Forum (from the outside) and see the old structures, and ruins (this was good enough to skip actually going inside the forum). The heart of the Piazza Venezia is the Memorial Monument. Just an incredibly beautiful structure!!!... More

Anchored by the il Vittoriano monument a climb to the top provides spectacular views of the piazza below and surrounding area. Characterized by the chaotic traffic racing around the piazza is the daunting challenge of traversing the area on foot. We did it, survived and will always remember this Rome experience. It is worth noting that the unmarked balcony with... More

I think every bus, taxi, crazy motorcyclist, wild car driver and insane bicyclist was riding around the square when we were there. They don't bother to paint lanes on the roads ... they'd be ignored. They don't bother with crosswalks ... if you truly need to get across a road you have to just act determined and stare the drivers... More

It is a lot of steps before it gets to the top, but it is well worth it. Piazza Venezia is a museum honoring the soldiers. It has a good number of exhibits that worth a look. The best part is the rooftop which you can see the entire Rome. There is also a cafe which calls for a visit.... More

If you are in Rome plan to cover this piazza as its breathtaking view and amazing architecture will make you fall in love with Rome. This attraction is free and you dont need any tickets to get inside. Almost all sight seeing buses cover it and make sure to see this monument.

This Piazza is great, its one of the few Piazzas in Rome where cars can drive through. There is a large square road area, with no traffic signs, etc. It is amazing to just watch the ciaos! There are impressive views of the Colosseum from this Piazza, as well as the massive Victor Emmanuel Monument. Certainly a great place for... More

This is the piazza that proceeds Victtorio Emmanuel II Monument. There are bus stops along its perimeter. A cozy little park, too. Be careful crossing, the cars are moving quickly around the circle.
