This place has got its name from a Venetion Cardinal who later became Pope Paul 2. A wonderful place with lots to see & wonderful buildings with architectural value. Well worth a visit as there is so much to see. It was very hot due to the heat of summer, it would have been more enjoyable if we came when... More

I personally was amazed when I first went there. It probably is the best place in Rome for me.I would strongly recommend going there and specifically on the top of this magnificent building where you can enjoy views of the whole city.

Dominated by the beautiful Altare della Patria, and surrounded by some amazing architecture, it's a great place to sit outside a bar slowly sipping a drink, gazing at the relatively young monument, enjoying the spectacle of the extraordinarily well behaved traffic or simply people watching.

Another amazing piazza in Rome. As I used to suggest to other turistic high spots in Rome...if you really want to live the most of it, the best is to come very early in the morning and avoid all the turistic crowd. If you are passionate about the photography, some great shots you can have at altare della patria, and... More

Piazza Venezia offers the perfect location for exploring all the city’s sights.With the Roman Forum on one side, just a 5-minute walk away and the Trevi Fountain on the other, you couldn’t be better placed.Fashion and shopping streets are just a few steps away. Its initial tract, from Piazza Venezia to Piazza del Popolo, is now known as Via del... More

We drove through on our way to the forum which is at the end of the square. Many buildings and museums. The museums closed early and weren't open one evening because there was a bomb scare in Rome while we were there. Look over from the terrace at the forum, nice view of the surrounding square. Roads surrounding the plaza... More

Everything is so big and magnificent on the square that you could easily forget about the time and just stand and stare. There is no way not to be amazed by the view from the street or seeing the city after climbing the building. Definitely must see place.

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.
