December 14, 2104: Horses in Rome Advent Calendar

The Quadrigas

In Piazza Venezia, atop the monument to Victor Emmanuel II, are the "quadrigas," chariots driven by four horses. Winged Victory statues seem to be soaring over the city. They are the highest points of the monument designed in 1885and completed in 1925. Today you can take a glass elevator to the Terrace of the Quadrigas for magnificent views of Rome.
