Piazza Venezia (Venice square) is considered the centre of Rome and the most important point of city traffic, but it is also the ideal place reccomended to tourists to start their discovery of the town, being in a focal point among the medieval and Renaissance Rome and the centre of the archeological one.
Venezia Square, or Piazza Venezia, is the topographical center of Rome, and many of the main roads in the eternal city cross in this square. It is also considered one of the connecting links among the various historical periods that have characterized Rome. It is the main square of Rome, the capital of Italy; it was actually the first square in Italy where gas-powered lights were tried. The square that we see today was actually constructed between the end of the 1800s and the beginning of the 1900s, to make room for the impressive Vittoriano, the monument to King Vittorio Emanuele II.
The name of the square derives from one of the most important buildings in the square, called Palazzo Venezia. This building was originally used as a Papal residence in the 15th century and then transformed into a sort of embassy for Venetian delegates in Rome.
If you’re visiting Venezia Square, take some time to also visit the Campidoglio, Piazza del Popolo and the Roman Forum.
