Good place to meet or start or end your walking travels. It is in front of a large roundabout with taxis, buses, sidewalks, and restaurants. Near the Collosseum, and on the way towards the pantheon and other attractions. Nice area to rest at night and watch life pass

The memorial is magnificent but, for me awful in its magnificence. It overshadows everything else for miles around, yet it shouldn't. The glories of ancient Rome, the majesty of the Catholic Church and this is bigger and brighter than pretty much everything else. Can't give it a 5 and a 1 so 3 is an unhappy medium

To me, Piazza Venezia is representative of modern Italy with all the traffic. Although it is in front of the famous wedding cake monument and features a brilliant garden but if you have such a beautiful sculpture in front of you and you also see lot of traffic if you just stay in the Piazza, then the time spent is...

There is a building/monument to Vittorio Emmanuel. The place is convenient for hop on hop off buses. In the evening, the fading light makes the white marble buildings look golden. The only problem is after the rain, when the marble floors can be quite slippery and the steps leading up to the interior of the monument have no balustrade so... More

Like many sights in Rome, the Piazza Venezia is very crowded with tourists and street vendors. The architecture, however, is beautiful.

This is a transportation and people watching hub. Many buses stop here, and this is the end of the line for Tram #8 . The Vittoriano, Risorgimento Museums, Capitoline Hill, Ara Coeli Church, San Marco Church, Palazzo Venezia, Palazzo Valentini and cafes are all here.

The monument heart of the plaza represents the whole country. The monument, tenderly called by Romans "the typewriter", because it looks like an old style machine. On the monumental stair there is the grave of the unknown soldier that represents all the Italian soldiers who died in all Italian wars. Within the monument the rooms are full of documents and...

One of the most beautiful piazzas in Rome is the Piazza Venezia. There are so many buildings with amazing architecture and is perfect if you are in the mood to take photos. I loved how there were lots of shops, people and things to do in the area. If you are in the area around christmas time its all decorated... More
