Superb views

Take the lift, around €7 to the top and you are rewarded with amazing views over Rome. Brilliant place to visit and we were lucky as it wasn't overly busy at the time.

There are some great views over Rome from the Aventine Hill, Janiculum Hill and St Peters dome. None, however, can compete with the views Terrazza delle Quadrighe offers up for, the Roman Forum, Pantheon, (a true appreciation of its wonderful dome, can be seen from here), the view down ancient Via del Corso and of course Rome in general.

Unmissable as a building in the center of Rome not far from a sizeable bus station and about 10-15 mins walk from the Colosseum. I've ben twice now. You can walk around the steps and structure and get some nice photos, there are museum exhibits in side that you can look at for a small fee. But the highlight of... More

The large white Monument to Victor Emanuel II is located in the centre of Rome next to Piazza Venezia and not far from the Colosseum. The structure goes by a number of names such as Terrazza Delle Quadrighe or Terrace of the Chariots, and Terraces of the Vittoriano. Local Romans seem to be split on their views about the building,... More

There's a fee to use the glass elevator but even if you don't make it to the top, you can still walk around and see a great view of the Colosseum and the different basilicas. It's not a super popular tourist spot so it's easy to walk around.

There is an elevator to the top of the Victor Emmanuel Monument which you enter through the back of the building. Tickets can be purchased on sight and it is well worth the price. The views are amazing of ancient Rome including the Forum, Colosseum and Vatican in the distance.

Buy the ticket ($7 EU for seniors), get in line, wait your turn to load into the glass cube to ride to the top, get out and take in the views, and line up again for the descent. The walk up to the elevator entails many steps and lots to see. Different vistas open up along the way: close-ups and... More

We went to the top and the views were spectacular. The walk up the steps was a workout....but worth the sweat and complaining from the kids. When you get to the highest walking point there is an elevator for 7 Euros and it takes you to the Ceiling of Rome. By far the best views of all of Rome. It... More

I can't believe that this place isn't mentioned in some guide books. If you are looking for somewhere to get a fantastic aerial view of the Roman ruins and the Collosseum then this is the place to be. Bolted onto the back of the building known as the wedding cake is a glass elevator which lifts you onto the roof... More
