Impressive in scale but very crowded next to a very busy road. Not a must see in my book. If you're walking past then fine. Maybe in another century or two it will be seen as classic architecture.
Was there during a protest. It was moving and beautiful to see. The architecture and history is wonderful.
We didn't go inside on this past trip, but from what I remember on a visit 3 years ago, it houses a pretty impressive and interesting war and battle museum. Even without going inside, this building is enough to make you say "wow!" The "wedding cake" of Rome is simply beautiful and well built. The traffic around it can get... More

I actually loved this and we had to pass by it several times on our way to other attractions. I was touched by the memorial on this to the unknown soldier, guarded 24/7 and on either side... More
For a 360 degree view this cannot be beaten. Although not an ancient site like the rest of the exotic Roman landscape, the aspect of being able to see the entire landscape and absorb the spendor before you is impressive. You can even see Mt Vesuvius from this vantage point as well as the Colloseum, Roman Forum, Vatican, Pantheon and... More
