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.

This is an amazing building with amazing architecture. You are not allowed to sit on the stairs or have pictures taken holding a banner/flag etc, the guards blow a whistle and move you on! Amusing watching people doing this! You can go inside for free and go to the rooftop for amazing views of Rome.

exquisite walk from the fori imeriali to piazza Venezia but once you get there there is nothing really to do but head elsewhere

The suqare is the central hub of Rome and is at the foot of the Capitoline Hill. The piazza is at... More

I was so impressed with this building. How grand it is and how beautiful. You must visit the top floor. If you go there, don't forget to take the elevator all the way up.

It's one of the biggest square in Rome, very nice to take a picture there. The square is faced the sun during the afternoon, so maybe it's a good idea to visit in the morning.

I truly believe that this piazza owes it's popularity thanks to Il Vittoriano. It comes at the end of Via del Corso and it's a busy transport hub as most buses and trams stop here.
