    Great views from the roof. Well worth the 7 euros. Even if I had to go through hell in a glass elevator!!!

    One of the greatest monuments in Rome. Must see. The only building that has no dome and still visible above the city.

    From here, you can also head to the colosseum which is a 10 minute walk away.

    A monument to an era. Devoted to king Vittorio Emanuele II, the structure has his equestrian sculpture and other statues.

    The tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Go to the top, even if you don't see the museum the outside patio has an amazing view and the church is really cool.

  • George M.

    Great views from the terrace if you walk up. Don't bother with the lift to the very top as it's €7!

    George MacD · February 27
  • Thunder C.

    For €7, take the glass elevator to the roof for stunning panoramic views over Rome

    Thunder Cat · December 10, 2014

    It's a great Museum. Probably one of the best organized museums ever. Go to the rooftop and order yourself a nice coffee after visiting the museum. Discuss what you've seen with friends. Enjoy Life. Read more

    Looks old, but less than 200yrs old. Rooftop view is worth the elevator price. Buy tickets ahead of time online to avoid line

  • Oliver S.

    Check out the unstoppable fires outside, beware of armed guards & strict staff - don't disappoint them! Kept in impeccable condition giving it a very majestic, regal vibe. Worth exploring inside too!

    Oliver Sears · June 30, 2013
  • Caner G.

    It's forbidden to sit on the floor and you can't put your stuff on floor as well. Wierd. This museum is really worth to see. Take a look at the city on the top.

    Get the lift to the viewing platform on the top. You have to pay but it is well worth it for stunning views over Rome.

    The monument built to honour Victor Emmanuel II, the first king of a unified Italy, holds the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier with an eternal flame, built under the statue of Italy after World War I.

    If you're a stickler for tradition, then climb the 320 steps to the top of the dome of St Peter's Basilica. It will offer you a breath of fresh air after marvelling at the magnificent frescos.
