  • Considered the eighth hill of Rome, it is a pleasant place to walk and to enjoy the views of the city.

  • You can hardly reach the hill of Gianicolo, but it is worthwhile. You can enjoy a complete panorama of the Eternal City. The walk makes it easy to meet monuments, gardens and various attractions, up to Piazza Garibaldi (where from below you can admire the cannon that shoots in mezzodì) and the lighthouse of Gianicolo, Sunday meeting of many Romans and tourists.
