Trajan was the Emeror at Rome's height and column celebrates his military victories. Best place to view is from the public footpath but if you're really interested you probably need to bring binoculars to see the details.

This is a great photo opportunity. Remember when it was first built it was all painted in bright reds blues and gold with a statue of Trajan on top

Impressive column of the early second century celebrating Trajans victories over the Dacians. Although it commemorates war, many of the scenes are of building and reconstruction and gave a more balanced aspect of events surrounding the conquest than just slaughter and battle scenes.Details are still...More

You can't miss this majestic column if you were watching from the top of Altar of the Fatherland or anywhere at Piazza Venezia. Simply an eye-catcher. One of the highlights of Apollodorus of Damascus, the greatest architect at that time.

The Colonna Traiana on Via dei Fori Imperiali has been completed in A.D. 113 in the honor of the Roman Emperor Trajan after the war victory over the Dacians (former Greece) Today, this is one of the tourist spot when travel in Rome. Recommended.

I am always a little awestruck at the incredibly intricate detail on this wonderful monument to a victorious Trajan no matter how many times I see it. I'm not overly fond of the statue of St. Peter at the top, however and think the original...More

The fact that Trajan's Column remains in the same place after more than 1,900 years is simply mind-boggling as is the pristine condition of the carvings. The intricate details tell the story of Trajan's conquest of the Dacians in 113AD and spiral from the base...More

There is actually a staircase inside the shaft of 185 steps that lead to the platform. Unfortunately it is closed for visitors.
