There is no better view for sure. You are able to see all the major landmarks from a bird perspective. Incredible, and much less crowded than the dome of Saint Peters church. The museum inside is worth checking out too.

A must-see location in central Rome! Amazing architecture to see up close. Definitely recommend walking up the steps and taking the elevator to the top (10€) to see panoramic views of the city.

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
