I think even if you did not seek out this monument you would be bound to see it on any visit to Rome. It is an amazing monument and only takes a little time to view and photograph

On our day trip to Rome I was amazed at the history and architecture this city has to offer. It really has to be seen to be appreciated.

The building itself is beautiful. Everything is very clean, well kept and white. Looks amazing on a sunny day. Great views from the top of the building over some Ruins and some of the city. Really nice. Highly recommend visiting.

Wonderful views from this building, at all levels, you can get up to the top via a lift which if I remember correctly was €6. Well worth a visit.

Another beautiful building with lots of history. Also a great spot for a sunset view. They have the tomb of the unknown with a change of the guards. Fee to get to the roof top via elevator.

It is very impressive but there really is not much there. There is a museum inside but it is very small and costs 5 euros to get in.

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

i did not see a cafe in the roof top at all, to understand well the roof top is the highest place to reach (paying a ticket and taking the elevator)
Peter D
To get to the roof do you have to pay to use the lift, or is there an option of stairs all the way to the top as well? Are kids free in the lift? Thanks Peter

I went here a 5 years ago and was using Trip Advisor City guides app which made my trip as it had the most fantastic integrated walking tours as well as researched information on each destination with things to look out for. I like the current Trip Advisor app however am disappointed with it in comparison to what it used to be. Will you bring back at least having a small paragraph on each monuments history and / or things to look out for?

This is a question that Trip Advisor need to answer and not previous visitors or reviewers. I used a local guide and he gave vast amounts of information during our walking tour
