Passeggiata di Gianicolo, Rome

4.7
#1 of 76 in Parks in Rome
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.

  • For the first time I went to see the firing of the cannon at noon. I must say I was very satisfied, and concerned by the historicity and tradition of this event. Nice ambience in a sunny Sunday, families and children, little theatre of puppet and a unique panorama. Downside: the road to go down to the cannon is in a bad area and everywhere there are litter and garbage. Really a shame. However an experience not to be missed.

  • Visit whenever I go out to Rome. Review by staff is a minibus tour, from Trastevere. I climb up to walk on foot. Roma views from the Plaza is the equestrian statue of Garibaldi. Emmanuel Memorial is seen in the front.

  • You need to push hard to enter this up but it's worth it. You can see the entire panorama of Rome and the Vatican. I recommend you get there at sunrise and West.

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.
