    "A pilgrimage to Rome is never limited to a pious visit to the churches and catacombs, but is always involved in life. Beyond and this world connect, heaven and earth, faith and everyday life (...). The encounter with the simple people in the streets of Rome, with the market women and craftsmen ... "

    Even if the "typewriter" is not popular with many Romans - I found it totally impressive - and the view is great.
    The monument and museum can be visited free of charge. Admission for the elevator to the panorama terrace costs 7 euros.
    Lift: Daily from 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
    Museum: daily from 9.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. (4.30 p.m. in winter)

    Here you stand directly in front of the Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II (National Monument for Viktor Emanuel II.). It was built by the Italian state to demonstrate power and influence over the powerful church, there is supposedly no deeper meaning for this building. The imposing building should be called the "typewriter" by the Romans.

    Piazza Venezia is the central hub of Rome in which several thoroughfares intersect, including the Via dei Fori Imperiali and the Via del Corso. It takes its name from the Palazzo Venezia, built by the Venetian Cardinal, Pietro Barbo (later Pope Paul II) alongside the church of Saint Mark, the patron saint of Venice. The Palazzo Venezia served as the embassy of the Republic of Venice in Rome.

    One side of the Piazza is the site of Italy's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in the Altare della Patria, part of the imposing Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II, first king of Italy.

    The piazza or square is at the foot of the Capitoline Hill and next to Trajan's Forum. The main artery, the Viale di Fori Imperiali begins there and leads past the Roman Forum to the Colosseum.

    In 2009, during excavations in the middle of the square for the construction of the Rome C Metro Line, remains of the emperor Hadrian's Athenaeum were unearthed.

    Here you should definitely go up the stairs to the cafe (free!) - beautiful view over the Roman Forum to the Colosseum - and then take the lift to the upper level (costs minimal) - fantastic view over the whole of Rome!

    Square with a view: the Altare della Patria, Capitolsplatz, the Marcellus Theater or the forums. The view is spectacular in every direction.
