If you've been to the Galleria Borghese or perhaps the Spanish Steps, you'll be in a high position overlooking the city - and this is the place to come to get a really good view and take some great photos, before you descend once again to the Piazza Del Popolo. There are a number of vantage points to select from,... More

A nice viewpoint (not only on Piazza del Popolo, but the skyline of Rome and Vatican City as well). Less crowds. A nice park. Nice in Rome terms of course, many other cities would love to have a spot like that.

From Piazza di Espana, i walk to Pinci Park, one of the nicest parks in Rome with a splendid vue to the piazza del Poppolo, view over Rome to the Vatican; I like very much pincio gardens, for spent an afternoon in the sun; Near the Villa Viladier, nice pads, fringed with dilapidated bust of classical heroes of Italy, plenty...

From this place you can see Rome in a different way. After a lot of stairs from de Popolo square, you can arrive at Pincio. Take some fresh air and observe a great view of the city. After this contemplation, you keep walking to the Villa Borguese.

We made our way here towards the end of a long, grey, rainy day and having walked through the striking Piazza del Popolo which had already lifted our spirits, we were then blown away by the incredible views over this most beautiful city.

Yes yes!! Do visit this attraction. The walk to the top is a few minutes long (mostly in the shadows) and the view on the top is worth every second of your time! Amazing.

Waking through nice views. American busker was bizarre. Rent quad bikes... nice to walk though and probably pretty at sunset. Midday, though?

We visited Colosseum and then decided to walk up countless steps on a hot day to Monte Pincio! But it was one of the best things we did. Enjoyed views and it was s bit cooler at the top. We could see the Vatican and all sorts of neat places of Rome. First, Peoples Square is gorgeous and second, Rome... More

Our tour guide took us to these gardens and I am glad she did. The busts of various famous Italians but the view is worth writing home about. There are 228 busts but we only had time to view a few. It is also villild with greenery and flowers. Napoleon ordered these gardens which were built between 1810 and 1818.... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
