Absolutely a wonderful place to see! It's home to the Vittoriano building, also knows as "The Wedding Cake" (I don't know why... I'm assuming cause it's so white?). There's a good bar nearby for some food and enjoy the views at the same time :)

Impressive building, you can see it from far away coming from the train station, and just enjoy the marvellous architecture while reaching it. Also worth visiting the inside!

too many things to take it at once, the sculpture, the guards on 24/7 duty the ever blazing fire. my hotel was right across the street, i use it as landmark to not get lost. most of all its a sight to behold morning or night

Visible above most other parts of Rome and therefore great for getting your bearings. Looks impressive from all angles. Is free to walk around. 7 euros if you want to ride the glass elevator and get probably the best rooftop view in Rome.

A few steps to climb to get a good view of the surroundings. Close to other landmarks, 5 minutes walk to the Colosseum. This building looks great, but was quite empty.

Great location in Rome, our hotel was just round the corner from this so it was amazing to see this every morning.

While we were walking around central Rome to find the Trevi Fountain we seen this massive structure from afar. Not sure of its purpose, but it is amazing to see in person. We ran out of time so we skipped and moved on to the fountain and the colosseum. Great photo opportunity, thanks for reading.

Go to the top of the building for an amazing view of Rome. There is lift from the last floor to the very top of the building. There is also a lift for the first few floors, but it's a staff only one, although they do allow you to use if you need it. We had two buggies and they... More

The museum was not really much to look at when compared to other sites, but the view from the elevator platform at the top was amazing. We passed this monument on the way to another attraction and thought it was worth a look. It is a beautiful structure, but the elevator ride up to have a panoramic view of Rome... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
