Piazza Venezia is the city center of Rome and an important cultural and artistic feature in the city. The square is the sit of Italy's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in the Altare Della Patria and rests at the foot of the Capitoline Hill, next to Trajan's Forum.
Perhaps the most famous fountain in the world, this baroque masterpiece from the 18th century is best known for the myth that tossing coins in brings good luck. People from all over the world come to throw money into the fountain.
Built in the year 126 AD, this famous piece of antiquity once served as a temple to all of the major Roman gods. One of the most well-preserved remnants of ancient Rome, it has been in almost constant use.
The site of this famous square was once the Stadium of Domitian in ancient times. The centerpiece of the piazza is the Fountain of the Four Rivers, which was designed by Bernini and features an Egyptian obelisk.
