Situated in the centre of Rome, this piazza is a must see - surrounded by history, it's a brilliant place to eat or relax.

I think its a centre for all the major attraction. Everything is walking distance from this square. It a busy square too. All the buses, crowd and so many road diversions. That is the good part. Altare Della Patria is on the square, just a little walk will go to Colosseum, other side Roman Forum and Palatine hill. A walk... More

Walked around the Piazza, admiring its impressive building, and climbing the stairs of the Altar of the Fatherland, its a must when you visit Rome

We only had time to pass this on the coach twice but it's absolutely stunning, it's so impressive I wish we had more time to get out and explore

Another of Romes free attractions. It's a pretty impressive building and it has some great views of ancient the Rome from the back of the building. There's a lift to a view platform for about €12 towards the back of the building. It's a good sight to go see in the way to the Colosseum.

We sort of stumbled upon this Piazza after seeing it from the top of the gardens (Villa Borghese). It was really lively, with some fountains, monuments and beautiful buildings. It was also the start of the main road, Via del Corso, known for its shopping as well. I would definitely suggest doing the gardens, coming down to the Piazza and... More

Rich in religious history, culture, fantastic food - the canals are so beautiful. The city is kept clean and is very vibrant

To ask to rate Piazza de Venezia is akin to ask to rate Eiffel Tower or Louvre, etc. It is - and has been - one of Rome's most recognizable landmark for centuries. Morning or day or evening or night you have to stop by Piazza de Venezia. And even though the behemoth monstrosity of the Altare della Patria (Altar... More

This is one of the more interesting piazzas, not because of the square itself but because it has so much surrounding it. You could easily spend half a day wandering about the area nearby. As usual, its full of selfie stick (and other) vendors and beggars. It should be part of any visit to Rome. And at night its even... 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.
