Piazza Colonna hotels
The Piazza Colonna is the central point of the city of Rome, and is surrounded by historic monuments and buildings. The Italian Prime Minister lives there in the grand building, Palazzo Chigi. It is almost impossible to stand in the Piazza Colonna of Rome and not be impressed with the history of this public square. It is dominated by the great marble Column of Marcus Aurelius, built in the first century to commemorate the victories of the Emperor. Rising 40 metres above the ground, the column is covered in carved images depicting various battle scenes.
- Examine the Column of Marcus Aurelius and snap some photos of the carvings on the column that spiral to the top where a bronze statue of St. Paul looks out over the city of Rome.
- Walk just a short distance from the Column to the Fontana di Piazza Colonna, a large marble fountain of the 16th century adorned with carved lion heads on the outside and stone dolphins inside.
- Stroll just a half kilometre away to a treasure of ancient Rome, the Pantheon of Agrippa that still stands in perfect form since the second century.
Getting into Rome is easy as it is a primary transport hub in Europe. There are numerous flights from across the continent and overseas and bus and rail routes from many inter-continental cities and regions. Driving in Rome is not for the faint-hearted, with expensive parking and heavy traffic congestion making the public transport system or taxis a better option most of the time. Buses stop nearby to Piazza Colonna. Consider purchasing a Roma Pass to get unrestricted public transport for a three-day period, as well as discounts to many attractions in Rome.
