Thanks to its strategic position, the Hotel Noto Hotel is near Piazza Venezia, one of the symbols of the capital located at the foot of the Capitoline Hill.
Piazza Venezia is 2 km away and can be reached on foot along Via Calatafimi towards Via Volturno, Via Volturno, Via Cernaia/Piazza delle Finanze, Via Giuseppe Romita, Via Vittorio Emanuele Orlando, Galleria Esedra, Via Torino, Via Modena, Via Firenze, Via Nazionale, Via Quattro Novembre, Via Magnanapoli, Foro Troiano and Piazza della Madonna di Loreto. It is an important meeting point in the capital and some of the city's fundamental streets intersect here: Via dei Fori Imperiali, Via del Corso, Via Battisti-Via Nazionale, Via del Plebiscito-Corso Vittorio, Via del Teatro di Marcello.
Between 1885 and 1911, the square underwent a series of important works that totally changed its appearance, giving us the Piazza Venezia that we all know today. The Victor Emmanuel II Monument, also known as the "Altare della Patria" (Altar of the Fatherland), was built and houses, palaces and churches linked to the traditions of Rome were demolished.
From small and narrow, the square became large and monumental. The Victor Emmanuel II Monument was entirely covered with Botticino marble. After the construction of the Vittoriano, the shape of the square was redesigned. The architect Giuseppe Sacconi had the idea of building the Palazzo delle Assicurazioni Generali, in front of Palazzo Venezia.
Inside Palazzo Venezia are the headquarters of the National Institute of Archaeology and History of Art and the National Museum of Palazzo Venezia. Of the original layout of the square, the north side with Palazzo Bonaparte has been preserved.
During the Christmas period, a large decorated fir tree stands in Piazza Venezia and becomes the symbols of the city in that period.
