This piazza is at the foot of the Capitoline Hill. The square is large with an ornate white building at the centre. To the right of the building (we nicknamed it the Christmas cake!), there are 2 sets of steps. Walk up the set to the right, go straight ahead across the square at the top and drop down the... More

A very lively square. I would say that this piazza is the center of Rome. Situated at the foot of the Capitoline Hill, it is walkable from almost all major tourist attractions like Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Roman Forum etc. The square itself has a huge space and the white building at the center is just grand. The building (called... More

Walking from piazza del popolo via del corso, will lead you to piazza venezia. Standing there you will see the statues and the enormous space and will love it. we even entered the museum and it was nice (build recently in the 1900 era).

A great place to sit and just marvel at all the structures. Like someone mentioned bring your gelato or sandwhiches.

This is a relatively modern structure among the historical sites. But its a beautiful white palace like building. Do go to the roof-top to get unparalleled views of Rome!

I was drawn to this place everytime I saw it from our tour bus. Its beautiful architectures, Statues are so grand. As someone said before me, It is a good meeting point or just somewhere you can rest your legs and watch everyone pass you by. Sit on the steps with your fav Gelati. Cant go wrong.

The Piazza Venezia is a great meeting point in Rome. Great place to gather friends, or for a tour. It is not far from the Colosseum , Forum, Trevi, and Pantheon. The white stone construction and massive statues stand out against the ancient ruins making it an easy place to spot when walking. I was a bit lost a few... More

It's really a must-see! Next to the Coliseum, it's a very nice place to take a couple of pictures and maybe hang out on the stairs enjoying the view and the gigantic statues.

This iconic square in front of the ''Altare della Patria'', this place is busy at any time of day, but the visual impact is stunning, especially in the late evening when the altar is lit and the atmosphere is romantic. From here, also with a 10-minute walk takes you directly to the Coliseum through one of the most beautiful streets... More
