Piazza Venezia (Italian: [ˈpjattsa veˈnɛttsja]) is a central hub of Rome, Italy, 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 Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II, first king of Italy.

We drove past this several times, and on our last day we got a chance to walk to and around it. It's beautiful. This piazza is more beautiful than the Spanish steps. The detail and vast size is impressive. I think this is worth a visit.

It one of the most visit site in Rome. Though not as old as most historic sites around it, this has got a charm of its own. Some parts are open for visit. I loved the beautiful view from the top. Just be side the basilica looking down through the city.

It's a huge square open to traffic. It's kind of difficult to walk from one end to the other but it is very convenient in order to reach Trajan forum and the column. There is a magnificent palace in one of the main sides of the square. It is kind of a pitty the contemporary buildings located in the square as well as the intense light at night of the spotlights pointing at some advertising areas

Beautiful architecture. Several museums are located there. One can go up the stairs and through the right passage, you will get to a lookout on the Roman forum and the coluseum. Also, for a small price, one can get up on the roof to one of the best lookouts in the city.

The building on the square is pretty amazing from the outside. Its a great place for a photo opp. The security will close the building at strange times (might be because they had a military parade going on) The building on the inside could use some serious love from a few contractors. But keep heading up the stairs and Holy mama, Expansive views of the city and the Rome Forum. This allows you to take some absolutely great photos of the city.

Another awesome free site (unless you take the elevator to the top of it). Lots of steps, so if that's something you can't do I recommend just getting inside the outer gate, getting some wonderful photos and heading on to your next site. If not, definitely continue up for some amazing views of the Roman and Imperial Forums!

Amazing must-visit location! Very imposing building with it's large statues. During the evening, the entire square is very lively and Trajan's column along with the nearby Roman ruins are lit up. When we visited, a band was playing music on the steps of the building, with the pedestrians cheering and clapping.

WOW what a beautiful place, a monument to Italy's first King and also houses the tomb of the unknown soldier. From the fabulous white marble statues and steps to the guards and constantly lit beacons in front, do not miss this place. Also has fantastic views of the Colosseum and Roman Forum.

Its absolutely an amazing awe inspiring place when you first arrive. Its simply an amazing engineering marvel. The design and build is spectacular. This piazza is the center of the most historic parts of Rome. The bus service and tram service, starts and departs from here. Its really a beautiful place to visit.

When we took the tour bus and passed this piazza.... we knew right away, we had to come back!! We didn't take a tour inside but just admiring the beautiful architecture and statue, it is so worth it already!!! It is one of the most popular tourist attraction spots. Just breathtaking to see such history in the middle of the city.

A beautiful and Romanesque palace situated in the heart of Rome, Piazza Venezia is one of several remarkable spots in Rome and a must-visit one. Remember to keep your belongings safe, because many buses and trams stop here and the crowd can be very chaotic at certain hours, especially in the evening (end of working hours). Watch your own feet when taking pictures or choosing path to walk on, since the line between pedestrian lane and main street is very vague.
