"Piazza Colonna" Via del Corso Tip by shivan

Via del Corso, Rome: 13 reviews and 25 photos

  Piazza Colonna
by shivan

There is a long road in Rome, connecting Piazza del Popolo to Piazza Venezia. It is Via del Corso, or more commonly, the Corso.

This is the heaven for tourist wanting to have some shopping. A few Romans there except on Saturday.

Along Via del Corso there is a beautiful square, called Piazza Colonna.

The obelisk in the middle is not roman, anyway, but stolen somewhere in the empire.

Another beautiful obelisk close to Caracalla, in front of the FAO Headquarters. It's been hit by a thunder this winter and heavily damaged.
