It is an incridible building. We travelled in the lift to the roof to get a panoramic view of Rome, breathtaking.

It is very impressive and if you climb all the stairs you have a beautiful view to the colosseum and the roman market.

This monument is absolutely stunning! Free to enter and wander round. The man on the gate explaining the rules (no eating/drinking/smoking/ sitting on the steps) was very polite and friendly. Nice views at the top of the monument.

We got here at night time and WOW, this really stands out in this area. Selfies are mostly taken at Piazza Venezia located at the center. What a romantic spot.

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
