  • Gianicolo is the highest hill of Rome, but it's quite easy to go on top where there is a Large square. From that point you will have a full view of Rome and during Sunset the light is very beautiful.....  more

  • A scenic place to have view of rome city especially the central part. It provides beautiful view of saint peters dome. Other historic buildings can also be seen from here. Light snacks and drinks are also available at a small shop. Parking is available very close to view point. People with wheel chair can also approach the view point.
  • I was surprised how few people there were up here on a Friday lunchtime, since the views over the city are superb and it’s a nice enough park to relax in on it’s own right. There’s a number of drink stalls also selling snacks, buskers performing some live music and plenty of spots of sit and relax. Somewhat a hidden gem it feels but a must visit if you’re around the area.
  • Great views of Rome. I know this is going to sound like a "dumb tourist" comment, but, some of the trees on the hillside block some of the best views. So, I do recommend that you go and enjoy the amazing views of Rome from this park, just don't plan on being able to see the whole city from 1 spot. It's also a nice spot to get away from the crush of tourists and have some shade.
  • Beautiful! We've arrived there by bus (there is a bus stop right at the viewpoint). It's a nice place where you get a view over a bit of Rome. We were here for sunset, but it's not in the direction of the viewpoint. It can get a bit crowded as both locals and tourists come here from what I've noticed
  • Absolutely Breathe taking scene. You get a proper good look around Rome and get to experience the insane quality and detail the Italians are capable of. I’d definitely recommend coming later in the evening, it just looks and feels nicer
