This is an absolutely stunning landmark that couldn't be in a better location. Vittorio Emanuele is located at the end of the Roman Forum which presents a unique opportunity to go from old to new in terms of Roman architecture. Visiting this monument brings a feeling of quiet respect that I had previous only felt at such memorials such as Pearl Harbor. Even though I don't know much of the Italian history behind the flame that burns for that lost soldier, the very monument itself in the way it is built to the quiet, respectful way the majority of tourists carry themselves here, creates quite an enviroment of thoughtfulness. Be sure to act appropriately while visiting this monument. I saw a few tourists get rebuked by security for being to loud and running around.
