Exploring Rome off the beaten path requires some intensity and a bit of sweat. Take a walk up from the west of the River Tiber to Piazzale Giuseppe Garibaldi atop Gianicolo Hill. Admiring a city from above is one of the best ways to gain...More

This place is amazing with a great view over Rome. The statue of Garibaldi, famous Italian hero that granted unification of the country, is very big and his military background is remembered every day at noon. If you arrive some minutes before 12:00, you should...More

The walk up his hill was steep, and there were a few things to see along the way (fountains, church). The top was a little disappointing. Yes, it was pretty, but I enjoyed the view from Orange Tree Park near the Keyhole on the Aventine...More

I recommend you to see the sunset from the hill. It has a stunning view to the city. Unfortunately, it is full of rubbish, which might be very disappointing if you look for an organized, clean park to be in.

Perched high on the Gianicolo Hill is where you come for fantastic sweeping views of Rome. You can gaze on the dome of St. Peter’s, the Vittorio Emmanuelle Monument, Villa Borghese plus so much more. This is where all the young lovers come to park.

Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and
overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible
mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable

Using Google Maps as my guide, it took about 20 minutes to walk (all uphill at a pretty good pitch) up from a restaurant in Trastevere. Eat in Trastevere before going up. The lookout is a plaza above the park and just has... More
