The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

You cannot miss finding this structure, it is visible from almost everywhere in Rome! Walk up to the very top and you will have an amazing view of the city.

We came with really no expectations! The architecture certainly does not fit in with just about anything else in Rome.

Our visit started off with a laugh when the people in front of us asked the guard at the entry gate if this was the Colosseum. He was definitely taken aback!

The walk up, while up stairs, isn't bad. You go at your own pace. It is one way, so don't try to reverse course. The views along the way are lovely.

We paid the extra fee to take the elevator to the very top of the building. Tickets are available right near the elevator, and be warned - the line is in full sun. There was no sign at the time about cost, and I'd seen a few different things online about ticket prices. In the end, We were charged for two adults and a college student - I had brought my oldest's college ID (required to show), and my other two children (10 and 15) were young enough to get free tickets. They just had to appear at the booth, so don't let your family stray too far! The time and cost were well worth it to see the Roman ruins behind the monument from above.

There's also a decent cafe serving drinks and other light goodies.

We did not see any of the inside museum. In fact, I'm not totally sure it was even open the day we were there. It seemed to be roped off and closed, but I may have missed something along the way. It was just as well as we were off elsewhere.

When 19th century architects try to emulate classic designs the results usually are monster eyesores.

This is an impressive monument to see. Easiest access is via bike or on foot. Rome is completely walkable and bus transportation is pretty good too. There are lots of angles that make memorable photos. What a magnificent symbol in Rome!

Great spot to tick off many of the must-dos.

Mussolini’s balcony, the Spanish steps, the Forum and the Arch are all within walking distance.

It's free to enter and there are a lot of steps to navigate but the building is impressive and provides great views of the city. There is a pricy café and an opportunity to pay for the elevator to the top for even better views.

This is a famous landmark in Rome. Besides seeing the monument itself, we took the lift to the top from where you get a magnificent panorama of the great city of Rome.

In our opinion this is by far the most stunningly beautiful,
impressive building in Rome. It is free to enter and see the galleries inside and views from the numerous terraces.

It does cost an extra €12 to use the panoramic glass lift to get to the rooftop terrace but this is worth every penny for the amazing 360° degree view of the whole city. An absolute must-see! Do book the lift tickets online in advance as there was quite a long queue when we were there.

A lot of stairs to climb, but the view compensates for this. Positive surprise. Beautiful building from both inside and outside. On top one can take an elevator (bit pricey) to go even higher.
