  • At the foot of the Hill of Gianicolo, a "mini Trevi Fountain" with, as a bonus, an unforgettable panorama. A real favorite, unexpected. Enjoy to freshen up before and after the rise of the Janiculum Hill.

  • Long walk by the time a man reaches to the Janiculum Hill, but it's worth it. The fountain is amazing, and there is not a lot of tourists, you can sit down, hand belelógatni the water. The beautiful view of the city from the Hill.

  • Worth the hike up a steep hill to visit a beautiful and QUIET fountain in Rome. Lovely in the heat to dip your toes in the water to cool down. The view over Rome is great. Much prefer this to Trevi or...  more »

  • Beautiful large fountain, nicely lit and best of all, no one is here. Hard to get it all in the photo. You also get a nice view of the city. Also worth mentioning is it's a nice hike uphill with stairs. We came from via Garibaldi and via Della scalla.... It was really dark too. We used our cellphone lights
  • This place has really nice view and atmosphere. I recommend you should come here after 9pm. There is no people, you're able to have this romantic fountain to yourself.
  • Beautiful view of Rome and the fountain is mesmerizing. However expect to walk uphill and many stairs! If you have seen the movie 'The Great Beauty' then you should definitely visit this spot. I came here around 11am and there were only a handful of tourists.
  • Climb up the hills of Trastevere and you will discover this lovely fountain. In front of the fountain you can see panoramic views of the area. Bring your camera!
  • Also called "Fontanone" or "fontana del Gianicolo" is a beautiful fountain on the Gianicolo Hill in Rome. Set of several movies, offers an amazing outlook over the city. Built in 1612, after Pope Paul V restored the Acqua Paola acqueduct, it marks the end of the acqueduct,

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.
