It's a bit of a climb, but worth it. There's a good few monuments on the grounds and the views are really stunning.

If you climb the stairs leading to the piazza you will be rewarded with a view of the roman forum and the colosseum.

Get there early if you want the best selfies. Close to the major attractions so stop on the way. Wear flat shoes OR wedges with all the cobblestone and uneven paths.

Another lovely square, this one with the equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius in the centre. This piazza was designed by Michaelangelo and is one of the most beautiful squares in Rome.

In each city I like to find a place that is really the center, where would you sit to watch the world go by? The Campidoglio designed by Michelangelo is a contender in Rome. It is still vibrating with city life even now. We enjoyed...More

Piazza Venezia / Ancient City
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here.
Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very

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
