Passeggiata di Gianicolo, Rome

4.8
#1 of 49 in Parks in Rome
Geologic Formation Lookout
Look over the rooftops of Rome at Passeggiata di Gianicolo, set on a hill that extends all the way to the Basilica of St. Peter. You'll be high enough to see the major monuments and smaller side streets. Every day at noon a single cannon announces midday from the hill. For a preview of your visit, watch the opening scene of the film "The Great Beauty," which shows the attraction in all its glory. Passeggiata di Gianicolo is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Rome Edition.

  • Good views of the city with an alternate hand, a lot of Greens, shady walkways, fountains with drinking water. The fountain, which became the prototype for the Trevi Fountain. Tempeto with a shady courtyard. All here.

  • The Gianicolo is not part of the seven hills of Rome, but that is what we have one of the most panoramic views of the city. There lies the Fontana dell'Acqua Paola, known as Il Fontanone (Giovanni Fontana and Flaminio Ponzio, 1612). There is a statue of Giuseppe Garibaldi (Emilio Gallori, 1895) and the monument/tomb of Anita Garibaldi (Mario Rutelli, 1932).

  • I think it's one of the most beautiful views of the eternal city, unfortunately what I notice is missing more and more of the city's major sites, cleaning anyway if you are in Rome you can visit the most beautiful terrace overlooking the beautiful city of Rome, the better the summer evening ...

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.
