Then you will go to Venice square dominated by the impressive white Monument to Victor Emmanuel II, famous abroad with the name “The Wedding Cake” and reach one of the seven hills of Rome the “Capitol Hill” which is the headquarter of the Mayor of Rome. A panoramic view of the illuminated Roman Forum will be right in front of you, do not forget your camera!
