Place name: Altar of the Fatherland

The monument was built in honor of the first king of united Italy, Victor Emmanuel II. It is located in the center of Piazza Venezia and visitors are allowed to climb on the top of it.

The ratio of the monument in Rome is ambiguous. Some derisively call it "open piano" and "wedding cake", while others consider it one of the brightest tourist attractions.

Vittoriano, for many Italians is a symbol of their dreams of a united Italy.

Region: Rome, Italy

Location: Piazza Venezia

Open hours: from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
