"Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II" Piazza Venezia - Vittoriano Tip by June.b

Piazza Venezia - Vittoriano, Rome: 187 reviews and 311 photos

National Monument of Victor Emmanuel II or The Vittoriano is located at the Piazza Venezia and dedicated to the first King Victor Emmanuel. Designed in 1885, built in 1911 finished construction in 1935.

Built in marbles and many artists and sculptors were commissioned to do the several instricate details and statues of the building.

It is the first one that really jump start my enthusiasm and made me gasp in awe, after my somewhat initial disappointment with the colosseum - so it was my miserable feeling at the hotel after all that blinded my perception of the colosseum.

Rome is beautiful.
