We were walking back to our hotel after sightseeing the Colosseum and came across this square. Well Piazza Venezia is where four major roads meet so traffic is chaotic. And yet we felt compelled to stop and look around once we safely got to a pavement. The monument to the first king of Italy, Victor Emmanuel II, is so impressive... More

This monument of Victor Emmanuel is wonderful. Actually everything is a walking distance in Rome. The more you walk the more you discover place so keep walking.. walk walk walk. You better see the monument at night as well.. superb.

Of the four Piazzas I visited whilst on holiday in Rome in March, Piazza Navona is classically stunning, Piazza di Spagna is fun and hip, then Piazza Venezia is stately and grand. This particular Square is home to Italy's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Trajan's Column, that adds a sobering significance to this attraction. I enjoyed meandering up the... More

Perhaps this is the busiest traffic Square in Rome. There is always a lot of cars and people. It has a very nice view of the Altare della Patria.

This is a tremendously busy piazza, with traffic whizzing in a giant circle. On the piazza are Palazzo Venezia and the Vittoriano, one of Rome's major landmarks. In the center of the piazza is a little park area, planted with bright flowers (as of April 2017). Crossing the streets here takes some courage! You'll undoubtedly pass through here on your... More

Amazing place that must be seen when visiting Rome. If you have the chance go by lift at the top of the building. Not expensive and the view is amazing.

Located at the end of the shopinf street, via del corso, this piazza is one of the most beautiful in Rome. Big in size and great in details with so many tourists passing through. Just 10 minutes walk from the Colosseum and remnants of ancient Rome.

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.
