  • Along the promenade on the Gianicolo, we are faced with a lighthouse, which though simple, is another of the attractions to beautify the place. On holidays, the lights in the colors of the flag of Italy they call attention to the Hill. From there we have a good view of Rome and Trastevere district. It's not a mandatory, unless the ride to Gianicolo is on tour in Rome.

  • The lighthouse on the ridge to the Summit of the Hill, literally. At first I did not believe, and in fact if you look closely at the lighthouse Lantern got stuck on the part of the mirror, you can see that the lighthouse. White color giving a sense of a small lighthouse

  • 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.

  • 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!
  • One of the 7 hills of Rome - Janiculum Hill. Worth a Visit. From here, you can see the panorama view of Rome. From there, you can walk to the trastevere area (10-20 mins distance walk) You'll love it there. Personally recommended.
  • The midday gun firing was the official Rome time marker for many years. You can't hear it down in the centre anymore because of the traffic but if you're next to the gun at 12 noon cover your ears.
  • 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.
  • Nice hiking up the hill and listening to the cannon.
