Description

The National Monument to Victor Emmanuel II, better known as Vittoriano, is a monument dedicated to the first King of Italy Victor Emmanuel II of Savoy. The Vittoriano is located in Venice Square and is often confused with the Altar of the fatherland that, on the contrary, represent just a part of the complex. The Victor Emmanuel monument is about 80 meters high and for its construction have been sacrificed some buildings that were located in the area, including an entire medieval quarter. The structure is simple but impressive and rich in details including the equestrian statue of Victor Emmanuel II opened in 1911, the great marble staircase and chariots symbol of Unity and Freedom. The visit to the Victorian is free and on a fixed course. In addition you can also visit the Altar of the fatherland Museum which is located within the complex.
