Vittorio Emmanuele II Monument

The Vittorio Emanuele Monument in Rome goes by many names, some official and some not at all so. In addition to Vittorio Emmanuele Monument, other official names include Altare della Patria (Altar of the Fatherland) and simply Il Vittoriano. Less formal nicknames, given by Romans who don’t exactly love the monument, include 'the wedding cake,' 'the typewriter' and 'the fake teeth.'

No matter what you call it, it's impossible to miss the imposing monument on the massive Piazza Venezia in central Rome. Built in the early 1900s to honor a unified Italy's first king, the structure serves double-duty as the home of Italy’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the Museum of Italian Reunification.

Another reason to visit the Vittoriano is to ride the Roma del Cielo elevator to the top for some of the best views of the city of Rome.
