The monument itself dominates the landscape of the area but my interest was the elevator that goes to the top. You become level with the chariot statues on top. The panoramic view of Rome is unparalleled. It was definitely worth the cost.

Not to take anything away from the importance of Vittorio Emanuele II but... the monument is just too much. Too much of everything piled up on top of more.

The Equestrian statue of Vittorio Emanuele II is the centre piece of Venezia. The stairs on either side leads right up to the statue, but the best view is from the street directly in front

Best side of this poor building is view. It is better idea to go to the Capitol hill from the side and admire Michelangelo's staircase. King's sculpture is huge and soldier's grave is pathetic. Italian nick name for this building is typewriter.

You will love the size and shape of this place at very first look, great view of city from top, unless you have a good camera you cant capture its beauty as its a marble and reflects lot of light.

Guidebooks of Rome are not very charitable to this ostentatious monument, and that's too bad, because it is the perfect ending to a day exploring the Colosseum and Palatine Hill. Its full of disjointed, disconnected treasures that are worth seeing, and the view of the...More

Piazza Venezia / Ancient City
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here.
Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very
epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree
turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its
ancient beginnings to its 21st century
transformations. Whether it’s those historical
playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or
the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this
