I didn't go inside or anything, but the scale of this monument is incredible. It's funny how "new" it looks even though it's 100 years old - which is pretty new next to all the monuments and ruins nearby! Awesome to see.

This national monument is dedicated to Vittorio Emanuele II. A set of steps lead from the street to a terrace, followed by a few more steps to the Tomb of the Unknown. Sitting above the Tomb is a mounted statue of Vittorio Emanuele II astride...More

Altare della Patria is easily accessible by both public transport and on foot if you come from Colosseum. Attention to the visiting program - it is not open all the time. If you've got here, it's worth visiting the gun museum inside. It's free. I...More

The terrace was shut off at 19:30, so the last admission to it was just a little bit before that. The elevator was the only way to reach the terrace. You climb all the steps at the front of the monument, and then you have... More
