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.

Pretty interesting roman obelisk, it's located on top of the of the Spanish Steps. Not necesarily a must visit but for sure you will see it once you climb up the stairs.

One of the thirteen ancient obelisks scattered in the squares of Rome, stands on top of Trinità dei Monti. It was carved in red granite in Aswan, in Roman times. Once in Rome, its surface was carved, copying the hieroglyphs of Seti I and Ramses II. Along with the church which stand behind it looks very impressive. Very picturesque. It is also a meeting place for people in Rome after shopping at Via dei Condotti.

Stop and check out the obelisk as you begin down the Spanish Steps or while your resting after walking up. Even though it is not authentic Egyptian, it is still very old. It is positioned well at the top of the steps, in front of the church.

There seems to be an obelisk in nearly every piazza in Rome so it does become a bit humdrum. This one sits in front of the church at the top of the Spanish Steps.

I'm no expert in massive Obelisk type designs but it looks alright to me even if it has got knock off hieroglyphics on it. Love the location and good vibe around the Piazza below.
