Amazing views of Rome

A lovely building to visit but even better if you take the lift to the roof at a cost of €7 - the only way to see Rome's horizon. A lot of steps.

Worth stopping in and seeing this magnificent memorial. Also, great views of Rome. We did this as part of a day where we did not do any tours and just walked around the city seeing some sites.

Impressive building that dominates the Rome skyline. Big chunk of shines white marble. Lots of steps then a lift up to the panoramic view from the roof. There is a charge for the lift but we thought it was worth it.

It is breathtaking and my favorite monument ever. So beautiful and romantic. Make sure you see the sun go down because the views of the city are something else.

There's not much to say. This is a massive and impressive monument, and you are likely to see some bridal parties. But it is a monument.

Caught our attention while walking from the Roman Forum towards Trevi Fountain. This large white structure looks absolutely stunning. Surrounding by heavy traffic, it may be hard to get up close, though we recommend viewing the structure from across the road anyways to fully take in the structure in its entirety.

A superb place from which to watch the Rome traffic and the rooftop sights across the city. Some of the most spectacular sculptures surrounding the building.

This is one of our favorite sites in Rome, and with all the site there, it says a lot. The size and beauty is breath taking.

You can't miss this huge building in the centre of Rome. Just be careful crossing the road if you intend to get up close.

Staying in Piazza Venezia / Ancient City

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
