Beautiful column telling the battles of Marcus Aurelius. Very interesting history of the column and the size of it. Worth making the detour and seeing.

This small piazza, named for the Column of Marcus Aurelius, is home to the Column since the 16th century, the Colonna fountain and is bordered on two sides by important buildings, Palazzo Chigi and the offices of Il Tempo.

The marble column with beautiful carvings, located at the centre of Piazza Colonna, is the icon there. Do not miss this spot while travel around the area.

Yet again Rome offers a stonkingly awesome piece of history, with this piazza made distinctive by the impressive marble column that's been there since AD 193!!! Really intricate carvings too. Only a shame that more info about it wasn't available at the site. Certainly worth...More

Nothing original about the name of this plaza, it is named after the high marble column located in its centre since 193AD. The plaza has a number of important buildings adjacent; Palazzo Chigi, the Church of Santi Bartolomeo ed Alessandro dei Bergamasch, Palazzo Wedekind and...More

Do walk through this piazza to see the column, it is not out of the way. There are also some government buildings - interesting to watch the comings and goings.

We 'found' the column of Marcus Aurelius by accident and very impressive it is. Unlike some of the other opinions, we DID feel that is worth a detour to see. The column is in amazing condition for its age. Incredible to think that it was...More

This piazza is important only for the column in the middle. In Ancient Rome, this was part of the Campus Martius, now is in the end of the Ancient Roman artifacts. The column is important, but not famous to the extent of the more early...More

It's a nice but rather small square. As we crossed it on a rainy day, we only stopped to marvel at the column of Marcus Aurelius with its impressive reliefs. On the square there is also Palazzo Chigi which is used as the official residence...More

Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos,
goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross
paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the
