  • Actually "Faro degli Italiani d' Argentina" with plaque commemorating the Italians emigrated to Argentina, who have donated this tower, this small lighthouse on the Gianicolo Hill, close to Piazza Garibaldi is located. We reached him on foot either from there or from the Lungotevere across a street and a staircase on the shortest route directly and can enjoy a quiet beautiful views of the city.

  • The lighthouse was built in 1911 by architect Manfredo Manfredi, former Assistant in the creation of the Vittoriano, it retains the style and using the same material. It was built with funds raised by the Italians emigrated to Argentina to pay homage to Italy United in the fiftieth anniversary of the creation of the Kingdom of Italy. Initially the lantern of the lighthouse was running every night, illuminating beam tricolor the roofs of the city, is now lit only on special occasions. Top 20 mt, has four Lions supporting the Lantern. Valuable.

  • We wondered about what to with a lighthouse in the middle of the city far from the coast. But the Lighthouse is a Memorial raised by Italians with Argentine background. Situated beautifully on the Gianicolo Hill, close by the cannon and Garibaldi monument – fun to see the many soldiers busts in the area.

  • Great view of large parts of Rome. Great photo opportunities from here. Wait a little by the fountain and there will be a bride couple with a photographer and a nice car. Big old beautiful trees all over on this hill. In this area you can be lucky to see or hear the green parrots (parachutes) who live here free. Very high scream!
  • As featured in Travel Man, this canon fires every day at noon. You can get really close to it and when it fires a shockwave hits you because it is so loud (no, seriously cover your ears)! Only downside is the long walk to the top of the hill, made even worse in hot, stuff conditions. An alternative attraction in Rome and definitely worth a visit.
  • Booms very loudly at 12 o'clock, noon, midday, Mezzogiorno. To synchronize all churches in Rome. If you're very close, protect your ears.
  • The cannon fires everyday at noon, and there is often a large crowd waiting for the daily event. The view from Gianicolo is one of the best of Rome.
  • Interestingand refreshing breeze atop rome

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
