Corso Vittorio Emanuele

This is one of the main traffic arteries of Rome built in course of adaptation of the city for the functions of a capital of Italy. It serves to connect Borghi and Vatican with Piazza Venezia and Stazione Termini. It was laid out in the 80's of the 19th century, and caused destruction of some little squares, churches and palaces. A short walk from Piazza Navona and Campo de’ Fiori. Also just a short distance from Navona Square, the Pantheon, the Imperial Forum and the Colosseum.

The Ponte (Bridge) Vittorio Emanuele II across the Tiber connects the historic centre of Rome (Corso Vittorio Emanuele, whose axis the bridge extends, and piazza Paoli at the bridgehead) with the rione Borgo (Quarter) and the Vatican City. Corso Vittorio Emanuele II was the first major arterial road built for the new capital. In part, it follows the ancient Via Papale, the old road that went from St.Peter to Rome's Cathedral, San Giovanni in Laterano. Corso Vittorio linked the Vatican, the ever expanding adjacent areas, and Piazza Venezia, where, more or less at the same time, the Vittoriano was inaugurated. It is splendidly decorated with four marble groups symbolizing the Defeat of Oppression, the Unity of Italy, the Allegiance to the Statute, and Liberty.

Vittorio Emanuele is a also station on Linea A of the Rome Metro. The station was inaugurated in 1980 and is sited underground, beneath Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II, which gives it its name, in the Esquilino rione.
