Here you can see the ruins of the ancient Rome. From here you can see the arch dear triumph, various forums, statues if famous leaders. Also the magnificent church at the top. The view from this area is exquisite and you feel that you are in ancient times.

Definitely a must, the climb is easy and very enjoyable. Apart from the incredible view of Rome, you will also see the rose gardens, a fountain and other amazing sights. There is also a museum at the top.

you have to go with your family and you can't go without a tour guide. We were lucky to have GraciaMaria as our tour guide and we luckily ended up with her alone because the other part of our party had to leave. We were also lucky to have good weather and in a low tourist season. We absolutely loved... More

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.
