The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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 neighbourhood packs a cultural punch and then some. Screaming scooters, battling buses, crazy cars, and lots of foot traffic converge in the area all day long. By dusk, a different vibe emerges as the neighbourhood quiets down. Don't be surprised if you find yourself passing through the Piazza Venezia at least once a day, since it’s the most direct way to get from one side of town to another.

This is a famous landmark in Rome. Besides seeing the monument itself, we took the lift to the top from where you get a magnificent panorama of the great city of Rome.

In our opinion this is by far the most stunningly beautiful,
impressive building in Rome. It is free to enter and see the galleries inside and views from the numerous terraces.

It does cost an extra €12 to use the panoramic glass lift to get to the rooftop terrace but this is worth every penny for the amazing 360° degree view of the whole city. An absolute must-see! Do book the lift tickets online in advance as there was quite a long queue when we were there.

A lot of stairs to climb, but the view compensates for this. Positive surprise. Beautiful building from both inside and outside. On top one can take an elevator (bit pricey) to go even higher.

This is a monument that reminds of when Italy was a monarchy and a lot of people are very disappointed about it. It's free to entry and you can see a beautiful view of the centre of Rome (you can see almost everything because of the central position). If you want to go on the top and have an even better view you can take the Elevator for 2€

An impressive structure and turned out to be a great landmark as we enjoyed the city and views from several angles. Also, more than worth a visit inside, heaped with paintings, et al.

If you can manage the steps then make the effort to climb this humongous monument then pay the €12 for the lift for the final part to take you to the very top from where you can see what seems like the whole of Rome. It really is a spectacular view.

Given that it's free to enter and FULL of tourists, you might be forgiven for thinking it's an outdoor-only thing. Far from it - if you walk to the top and circle round the back (via the restaurant and the panoramic lift queue) you get to go inside and walk through the monument. We only realised this by mistake as you could easily have just walked down the steps and out again. It's worth visiting the insides though.

The "Altare Della Patria" also known as the Mole del Vittoriano or simply Vittoriano, is a large national monument built between 1885 and 1935 to honour Victor Emmanuel II, the first king of a unified Italy.

It is an amazingly impressive building. Showing the strength, power and architectual skills.

It's been built from 1885 to 1935. By the style they chose it could be easily been built 2000 years ago.
It's just an amazing sight. And maybe even more so at night. Luckily there is less traffic now, since regular cars won't drive around this place and the colosseum. Better for the view, less noise and feels less busy.

Besided the Coloseo and the Trevi Fountain surely one of the must-sees when visiting Rome for the first time. Even if you've seen it before...the sight remains amazing every time.

One of the most impressive buildings of the modern Rome, visible from the distance, even from Republica square. I understood from other reviews that the inside visite is less impressive, but at least you need to take some pictures with this huge construction
