I caught a taxi to the top of the Janiculum Hill from where I would walk downhill through Trastevere back to the Tiber. There were great views across Rome from the hill. A statue to the national hero - Garibaldi - was there. Quite a story - his little band starting in Sicily and eventually uniting all Italy for the... More

Beautiful views of the city of Rome from the top of Janiculum Hill! Our tour operator took us there first for an introduction to the city before visiting other sites. We were traveling by cruise ship and only had one day in Rome. Hope to visit again some day!

Little vendors are up at the hilltop... Get here before sunset on a clear day. Grab a coffee or wine and sit to watch the sun change the views of Rome. Lovely park and lovely place to sit and unwind before a late dinner.

Impressive statue and a great view of Rome, unfortunately much of the view is spoilt by the green growth. Not just mature trees but undergrowth that has got out of hand. Needs some attention to free up the views all round.

My husband and I got up there from Piazza di San Pietro via Passeggiata del Gianicolo 30 minutes before the daily cannon shot at noon, a tradition going back to 1904 on the Belvedere del Gianicolo. It was a pretty long walk, which seemed longer than 1 hour, but it's worth it. We took our time passing by the Belvedere... More

Sure, it's a bit of a walk up the Janiculum Hill (or you could bus up), but it's an interesting walk if you start at the Travestere end and the view is brilliant!

When in Trastesvere (and don't miss that), this is a nice walk up to the Piazzale. There are many vistas overlooking Rome and a lovely fountain on the way.

Located at the top of Janiculum Hill, Piazzale Garibaldi is often overlooked, set apart from the Vatican and major archaeological attractions around Palatine and Aventine. This is a shame because once you've made the climb, you are rewarded with a stunning eastward view across Rome quite different to the usual skylines, and on a clear day will be able to... More

Worth visiting if only for the views over the city - I'd suggest walking up through Trastevere which is a really interesting area with lots of cafes, restaurants and quirky arty shops. From there it's a steep climb up the hill and into the park to the Garibaldi monument.

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
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 eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
