  • The Hill of Gianicolo is considered the eighth Hill of Rome. Is less visited by tourists, but it offers a beautiful view of the city. Are the monuments in honour of Giuseppe and Anita Garibaldi. Anita has a gun in his right hand and on his left arm holding a kid (probably one of the sons). The horse is with both forepaws raised, meaning that she died fighting. This was not the case of Giuseppe and, therefore, his horse has all four legs on the ground. There is also the cannon of Gianicolo. Promptly at noon, since the mid-19TH century, rain or shine, it shoots to hit Rome watches.

  • As the ride in Villa Borghese, the ride on the Gianicolo Hills is very nice, as there are very green squares with statues, fountains with drinking water, and best of all, the spectacular view of Rome. There also two monuments, one is the equestrian statue of Garibaldi and another Anita Garibaldi's grave, in addition to the lighthouse. Another site which is a memorial is the wall of the Roman Constitution of 1849. Are many attractions which refer to political history of Italy that few tourists know. Also on the Gianicolo down the via Garibaldi towards the river Tevere (Tiber), is the Fontana dell'Acqua Paola, and later the Tempietto of Bramante. Who is leaving the Basilica di San Pietro in the Vatican, or strolling in the Trastevere and has plenty of time, it is worth visiting.
