24,711 reviews
Home to some of the world’s most iconic paintings, the Vatican Museums attract huge crowds. Save yourself hours of waiting by booking this skip-the-line tour of the Sistine Chapel, Raphael’s Rooms, and St. Peter’s Basilica (when the option is selected) in Rome. Early morning and evening tour options mean you can explore the complex during far less crowded time slots. Upgrade to a small-group tour limited to 10 people for a more personalized experience.

In Rome, you know, the streets often have bizarre names. In the Pigna disttict, and more precisely in via di Santo Stefano del Cacco, where the beautiful and historic church of the same name is located, not far from the Pantheon, there is 'Via del Pie' di marmo', which owes its name to a large marble foot resting on a pedestal. The foot is what remains of a colossal statue which, almost certainly, comes from a large temple dedicated to two Egyptian gods, Isis and Serapis, which was in this very place, and was known as Iseo Campense. Suggestive. iit was recently restored by the FAI (the Italian Trust for the protection of Nation's enviromental and historic heritage) as explained in a metal plate.under the block. Nice.

Rome is so full of history and this little attraction would be easy to miss. Yes, it's only a large sandalled foot from what must have been a very large statue and very little is known about it. But it many ways that's part of it's charm; it's just so random tucked away down a side-street. Fortunately the street is named after it (Via del Pie Marmo) so it's easy to find, take a picture and move on to the next attraction, be it major or somewhat oddball like this one.

Its a little bit inspiring and amazing that this remains here! Crazy to think how old it is. However, it's' rather anticlimatic ... it's hard to find first of all and when you do its quite small and a little underwhelming. If you're around - its worth the look for the age of it but otherwise, I wouldn't bother making a special trip.

I searched this piece out after a few tour books mentioned it and I was thoroughly unimpressed. Yes, it’s a giant leftover piece from a statue, but really, Rome is full of those. I guess the attraction is it’s random location? Anyway, at least it sits in a nice area near some beautiful basilicas so maybe as you walk from one to another you could use the street it’s on and take a look at it. I wouldn’t bother (or recommend) going out of your way to try and find it.

Like other reviewers we walked past it...TWICE! A little underwhelming for quite a small marble foot. There are much bigger feet across Rome (Capitoiline for example).
