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.

Also known as Venice square. This place is near the senate or parliament building of Rome. Good for walking and strolling around, and watching Romans go about their daily life.

Beautiful and loved Rome's history, and the piazza slots right in. One of the places to go and relax and take in Rome. It was also very busy.

Located in the heart of the city, this busy square is a thoroughfare surrounded by landmark buildings and monuments. Traffic here is chaotic so watch out while crossing the roads.

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

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.
