Top ways to experience Piazza Venezia
The area
Neighbourhood: 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.

    Busy Square
    This square is always busy apart from early in the morning. The Vittorio Emmanuel Building is located at the back of the square. Everyone who visits Rome will either walk or ride past the Piazza Venezia.

    The Victor Emmanuel II National Monument. (Altare della Patria)

    Renowned central hub of Rome with monuments
    The Piazza Venezia is the renowned central hub of Rome with monuments. The Victor Emanuele 11 Monument overlooks the piazza on one side and the Roman Forum on the other side. We walked through this piazza each day of our stay in Rome. We walked through late at night one evening and the streets were almost deserted of cars and people. It was really special to see it deserted late at night and early in the morning.

    Rome’s central hub
    They say that “All roads lead to Rome”. Nothing epitomizes this better than Piazza Venezia. Symbolically fusing ancient and modern Rome, this square is the central hub of the city, situated at the intersection of several major thoroughfares including the historic Via dei Fori Imperiali that leads to the Roman Forum and Colosseum, and the shopping street of Via del Corso. Strategically located at the foot of Capitoline Hill, this square is not likely to be missed by any visitors to Rome as all the major Rome attractions are within walking distance from here. Dominating the piazza is the colossal Victor Emmanuel II Monument where you can get a view of the piazza and its surroundings by climbing the series of stairs to the portico. Unfortunately, the views of Piazza Venezia will be marred for the next 10 years as construction of the Metro C underground station is currently underway.

    Majestic building and statues.
    You cannot come to Rome and not experience the sights. This is one for the list, even if it is a walk around whilst on the way to another location. Majestic building that had a large Christmas tree near to it when I went.

It's such a nice place to go, you can go up the steps and you'll get very nice views. I'd definitely recommend it. You won't be able to go back down though and have to continue until you are up

It’s definitely beautiful and worth seeing go early in the day to avoid crowds or if possible book ahead. The only downside is that the Metro construction is occurring directly in front of it.

Well this once nice square is going to be a construction site for probably 10 years. That sadly hurts the view from the Vittoriano.
