Few words can adequately describe the simply breathtaking view which may be enjoyed from the Terrace of the Quadrigas on top of the Monument to Victor Emamuel II, the Vittoriano or the Altar of the Fatherland.
Two glass lifts, which first went into use in 2007, take visitors up to the top of this massive marble monument for a unique 360 degree panorama of the eternal city.
The view is all-embracing, taking in the majesty of the Colosseum, the splendour of the Imperial Forums, the magnificent churches of the historic centre, the River Tiber and Jewish Ghetto to sweep across to Capitol Hill and the Quirinale and even stretch as far as the Mussolini era-built district of EUR and the group of towns located south of Rome known as the Castelli Romani.
Entrance only from Venice Square
Monday-Sunday: 9.30 am- 7.30 pm(last admission h. 6.45 pm)
Closed 25 December and 1 January
