THE BEST VIEW OF ROME
Everybody knows that Rome is an amazing city. I hardly know anyone who hasn´t fallen in love when visiting it. Even though it is not as big as Paris or other European capitals, there´s so much to visit that you never get tired of what Rome offers. So, I always ask my friends, colleagues and followers for new tips to try on my trips. My friend Claudia shared an amazing one and I want to tell you all about it.
At this point you may know that I´m a huge viewpoint fan. I love to stare the cities from other perspective, and viewpoints always provide a different sight. So, on a sunny day I went to “The Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emmanuele II” who was the first king to reunite Italy. The Monument itself is stunning, although its building was very controversial at the moment it was constructed because it kind of brakes the Roman style.
What I didn´t know is that the monument has an amazing panoramic terrace and what´s even better you don´t have to climb up 400 hundred steps (like I did in Florence or Paris, although I don´t regret it, of course!). Just take the elevator. There are some stairs inside the monument, nothing serious, and by the way, you´ll get to know the building inside FOR FREE.
Once you get to the elevator be ready to pay for the lift. Children up to 18 pay half the ticket (which is around 7 euros). But is absolutely worth it. I´ve been waiting for so long that I was a little afraid it wouldn´t fill my expectations. But it did, and more!
Not only one could see Via del Corso up to Piazza del Popolo, but you´ll get to see the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. I felt so happy, I had time enough to take pictures, enjoy the view, recognize buildings and the best: there were few people around (and it was midday). I simply loved it! Hope you can enjoy this too on your next visit!
