Victor Emmanuel stands tall to welcome visitors to Rome's National Monument of Victor Emmanuel

Standing tall and proud in front of the Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II or National Monument of Victor Emmanuel, this equestrian statue carries the first newly-crowned king of a "united" Italy. The monument is known by some as the "Wedding Cake" and is located between Piazza Venezia and Capitoline Hill, just outside the Roman Forum.
