The look on the monument is breathtaking, but also is the view from the Piazza Venezia. Everything around you is made in white marble and the time stops somewhere in the past while you are observing the traffic and the "modern" life of Rome in the outside of the monument.

If for no other reason visit this Piazza to traffic watch. Cars, buses, motorbikes, cycles and mopeds coming from every direction and vying to be the one that gets ahead quickest. In among this are the pedestrians trying to get from one side to the otherbwithout being killed. I thought the traffic at the L'Arc De Triomphe was crazy until... More

Piazza Venezia is a great place to visit. Very famous with the tourists. Very nice but chaotic traffic in the square. A monument dedicated to King Emmanuel II. Built in white marble.

Piazza Venezia is beautiful day or night. Beware of aggressive driving around you, especially if taking pictures or crossing streets. If you aren't into huge crowds of tourists, go earlier or later in the day, or during a less busy time of year

Not intending to visit this but was en route to Colesseum and turned in to Piazza Venezia and - WOW, just the most amazing piece of architecture leaves you speechless with backdrop of the Colesseum.

After piazza Navona it's a short walk to the piazza Venezia where the architecture is dominated by the Victor Emmanuel monument which houses the tomb of the unknown soldier . There are Renaissance buildings & Roman ruins in the square too but also a lot of traffic.

We stayed in an AirBNB just off the piazza. Lots of buses and the train stop here. Many small stores and can walk easily to Colosseum and other sites

This is a great area in Rome, full of traffic. It doesn't matter which angle you approach it, it will always manage to take your breath away. Love this part of Rome. You can organise a tour inside so as you can understand the history a little better. Worth a visit when travelling to Rome.

Me and my friends had decided to take a walk to the colosseum from Fontana di trevi and we just kinda stubbled on this imposing structure which was no where in our targets of venture! Unaware of what it was and what it signified - with utter excitement we did what usually a thrilled tourist would do- asked a passerby... 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.
