"Silke's most favourite building" Piazza Venezia Tip by chicabonita

Piazza Venezia, Rome: 35 reviews and 46 photos

  Monument for Vittorio Emanuele
by chicabonita

Favorite thing: My friend Silke liked this building best. I liked it more the more I've seen of it ...

I have read in my travel book that the monument was built to honor Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of the united Italy.

It is increadible how huge it is! It was also the building we passed the most while walking around. Don't asked me why! :-))

Third time is a charm! The first time we saw it we couldn't visit because the president of Malta was coming. The second time it was too late! It closes at 4.30 pm. Finally the third time we had sufficient time to explore this impressive and amazing monument!
