Why to visit Altar Of The Fatherland

The grandeur of Rome's largest monument is visible from the foot of the stairs and the surrounding sculptures. Inside, you'll find the following:-

•Since 1921, the crypt of the unknown soldier, surrounded by a coat of arms, flags, and lamps, has stood in the heart of Altare della Patria.

•The Sacrium of Flags is a display of flags used in the battle for Italy's unification.

•The navy's sacrium houses memorabilia and flags from now-disarmed navy units.

The Altare della Patria is open every day of the week, allowing many tourists to enjoy the magnificent setting. During the fall and winter, visitors are welcome from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. During the summer and spring, hours are extended until 7:30 p.m. Every day during opening hours, tourists can climb to see the terraces. If you want to climb by elevator, the Roma dal Cielo Ascensore is open from 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

It is visible among the church domes and rooftops that make up Rome's skyline. The building's name translates to "Altar of the Fatherland," and it was constructed between 1885 and 1925 to honour Victor Emmanuel II, who was known as the "Father of the Fatherland" and was the first king of a unified Italy.

You can make payment for sky elevator and museum tickets right at the entrance. The ticketing office for the museum is open from 9:30 am to 5:45 pm on every day of the week. All guests can make reservations for their tickets on site, but groups of up to 25 participants are required to make a reservation through phone call or online.

Special Tip

If you've planned your trip between October and March, you're in luck. On the first Sunday of each of these months, admission to the museum is free.
