It is certainly a beautiful building, with fantastic architecture and a truly unique location, but that's not all that Piazza Venezia has to offer. It holds many wonders of the Roman world and a whole slew of things relating to modern-day Italy. Between the monument to Victor Emmanuel, to the lovely displays on the inside of the building (a chapel-like... More

Every place in Rome is special. But as you go towards Piazza Venezia you really feel "small" !!! Beautiful to see.

This place has got its name from a Venetion Cardinal who later became Pope Paul 2. A wonderful place with lots to see & wonderful buildings with architectural value. Well worth a visit as there is so much to see. It was very hot due to the heat of summer, it would have been more enjoyable if we came when... More

I personally was amazed when I first went there. It probably is the best place in Rome for me.I would strongly recommend going there and specifically on the top of this magnificent building where you can enjoy views of the whole city.

Dominated by the beautiful Altare della Patria, and surrounded by some amazing architecture, it's a great place to sit outside a bar slowly sipping a drink, gazing at the relatively young monument, enjoying the spectacle of the extraordinarily well behaved traffic or simply people watching.

Another amazing piazza in Rome. As I used to suggest to other turistic high spots in Rome...if you really want to live the most of it, the best is to come very early in the morning and avoid all the turistic crowd. If you are passionate about the photography, some great shots you can have at altare della patria, and... More

Staying in Piazza Venezia / Ancient City

Neighborhood Profile
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 neighborhood packs a cultural punch and then some. Screaming scooters, battling buses, crazy cars, and lots of foot traffic converge in the area all day long. By dusk, a different vibe emerges as the neighborhood quiets down. Don't be surprised if you find yourself passing through the Piazza Venezia at least once a day, since it’s the most direct way to get from one side of town to another.
