Piazza Venezia is one of the most impressive points of Rome. It is surrounded by incredible pieces of architecture and is only 30-35 minutes away from the main bus station (Termini). Simply unmissable

We visited this landmark by accident but we were so glad that we did as it was filled with a load of history within its museums and stunning views of Rome including the Coliseum in the distance. It has such an impressive view of the building from the bottom of the steps both Day and night and makes the perfect... More

Once you get off the bus here (tram 8 also has a station nearby), the imposing view of Il Vittoriano, the monument dedicated to the first king of unified Italy strikes you in the eye, it dominates the place and you'd be happy to know that most exhibits inside, dedicate to reunification, are free to admire. However, around the piazza... More

This area is a lot to take in. There is so much to see in one area. If you are on the far left side of the street (as you face the main building), you can see some of Rome's greatest views. You can look down the street to the Colosseum, as well 180 degrees of spectacular history all on... More

We found this as we were coming back from the Roman forum and decided to stop in. There are some really nice sculptures there as well as the one of Romulus and Remus.

This piazza is worth including in your down town walking tour and can be enjoyed either before or after your visit to the forum. Imposing victory monument that dominates the square with a basilica off to the side. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Lots to see and plenty of traffic too. Just aim your camera phone in any direction and start taking pictures!

An impressive piazza located at the base of the Victor Emmanuel II monument. A central traffic hub. Situated nearby to the Capitoline Hills, roman forum, coliseum and pantheon. The piazza area offers an impressive view of the monument especially during the evening.

It is quite a sight in itself but spoiled by the constant traffic. When we were here there was a splendid Christmas tree in the centre.

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.
