Piazza Venezia - Vittoriano, Rome: 187 reviews and 311 photos
Piazza Venezia is the best place to start any tour around Rome.
The central point of this piazza is definately the monument to Vittorio Emanuelle II, which can be seen almost everywhere from Rome.
The most important avenues converge to this piazza: Via del Corso, Via Quattro Novembre, Via del Plebiscito and Via dei Fiori Imperiali, which goes along the roman forum until the Coliseum.
The Palazio Venezia next to the square was constructed in 1455 by LEon BAttista Alberti by orders of cardenal Pietro Barbo, who was later Pope Paul II. It's been considered one of the first Renaisance constructions. It is now a museum which has important medieval and Reinasance paintings and sculptures by Bellini, Gozzolo, Sansovino, Alemanno, Reni and Giorgione.
