We seemed to keep passing through this piazza during our golf cart tours, and I loved it each time. Great views of the “Wedding Cake” (Vittorio Emanuele II national monument) and the window where Benito Mussolini used to address his people.

This square is right in front of the monument statue of Victor Emanuel II and the building known as the Altar of the Fatherland. The Roman Forum is close by.

Also known as Venice square. This place is near the senate or parliament building of Rome. Good for walking and strolling around, and watching Romans go about their daily life.

Beautiful and loved Rome's history, and the piazza slots right in. One of the places to go and relax and take in Rome. It was also very busy.

Located in the heart of the city, this busy square is a thoroughfare surrounded by landmark buildings and monuments. Traffic here is chaotic so watch out while crossing the roads.

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
