“Worth a visit on your way”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Not worth a special trip unless you've got someone who can tell you all about Trajan but if en route somewhere else well worth a 10 minute detour.

“Cool but..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

This column is pretty cool to see.. You can't get really up close to it because it is so tall and the heiroglyphics are about 15' off the surface.. Also hard to see the statue clearly from the plaza.. It was almost deserted at 3 pm.. Cool to see but is a ' if I get to it' sight..

“Trajan is a star”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

This is a pretty cool column. You can walk past and enjoy its detailed intricacy while either on your way to the colosseum or to the wedding cake. I particularly like Trajan, he was so worldly and well travelled. Check it out

“Completely under rated”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Doing Rome on a budget? I know I was. And because I was, it meant we had a lot of walking ahead of us. Unfortunately, Trajan's column wasn't labelled on our map, so we really hit it lucky when on our walk in to see the Colosseum that we stumbled across Trajan's column.

It shows, the emperor Trajan's conquest of the province of Dacia (something that had also fascinated me), and the detail is amazing. The engravings go around the column in a spire and run all the way up.

This attraction isn't given enough attention.
