Piazza Venezia was decked out with a huge Christmas tree in early January when we were there. It was best viewed from the steps of Altare dell Patria at night. So beautiful!

We stumbled upon this when trying to find the Trevi fountain... I was blown away by the beauty and inspiration of this piece of art.

The Piazza Venezia is probably, effectively the centre of modern Rome, and its close proximity to the Roman Forum, Trajan’s Column and the Capitoline Hill means that it was probably close to the centre of ancient Rome also. It is crazy busy with traffic and...More

Busy with traffic, but a must-see. Small pine cone fountain on a corner across the street from the monument, and historic stairway behind the monument.

Piazza Venezia is just impressive!!! Really really feel small in front of it! Central location from other view points as Colosseo or Piazza di Spagna and Piazza Navona!

We seemed to keep passing through this piazza during our golf cart tours, and I loved it each time. Great views of the “Wedding Cake” (Vittorio Emanuele II national monument) and the window where Benito Mussolini used to address his people.

This square is right in front of the monument statue of Victor Emanuel II and the building known as the Altar of the Fatherland. The Roman Forum is close by.

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

In my opinion, Piazza Venecia is the most central square of Rome. It is the best area to be!

Wow! Wow! Wow! AMAZING city! I had a great time, weather was warm but a but chilly at night. Loved EVERY bit of it- highlight had to be the Sistine Chapel- which was worth the 2 hour wait in the queue- simply breathtaking piece of art. Just blew me away completely. Stayed at the Hosiantum Hotel, which was just off Piazza Venezia and was a perfect location- great staff and extremely helpful. As a single woman I found it VERY safe to walk around.

North of Piazza Navona vs. Piazza Venezia (2 Replies)
Hello everyone... I need your help in deciding a location to stay... Which area would you say is better overall to obtain a hotel in...the area north if Piazza Navona OR Piazza Venezia, which would be roughly half way between the Pantheon and the Colisseum? Thanks for your help with this decision!

Both locations are fine, and you can walk to most things from either of them. I would base the choice on the hotel itself.
