Piazza Venezia Bus Tour
When visiting Rome, many people chose to begin with a tour of the Piazza Venezia because it is central the city of Rome and because it is considered by some as the nucleus of the history of this magnificent city. Bus tours connect here from all parts of the city.
At the center of the square is the Piazza del Campidoglio, which was designed by Michelangelo, and is a geometric paving that signifies the very seat of the government and headquarters for the Roman guilds.
A broad set of stairs leads up to Michelangelo’s Piazza del Campidoglio, which was built by Giacomo della Porta in the mid sixteenth century. The piazza faces west toward the St. Peter’s, which is comparable to a Christian capital. At the very center stands a statue Marcus Aurelius, a Roman emperor who is often made reference to as “the wise” because he is considered one of the most important Stoic philosophers.
The Palazzo Dei Conservatori sits at the center next to Michelangelo’s geometric paving and houses art galleries on the third floor from artists such as Veronese, Guercino, Tintoretto, Rubens, Caravaggio, Van Dyck and Titian. Michelangelo designed the façade of the building.
