Piazza Venezia - Vittoriano, Rome: 185 reviews and 303 photos
The Vittoriano is situated in a beautiful (and busy!) piazza, Piazza Venezia.
It is a limestone monument to King Vittorio Emmanuele II of Savoia, the first king of Italy.
It started being built in 1885 and was only completed in 1935. It is built in a typical Greek and Latin style, and inside it is buried the 'Unknown Warrior', who is a proud symbol of those who died during World War I.
The Capitoline is to the right of this monument.
The Campidoglio is the centre of the municipal government of Rome today, and was the centre of religious life in Rome and the site of a few rather important sanctuaries and temples in ancient Roman times.
Three being: the Temple of Juno Moneta, the Temple of Virtus and the Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maxims Capitolinus, the most important temple in ancient Rome.
It was regarded with much esteem by the Romans!
