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.

It is a beautiful walk high above the City of Rome and the Botanical Gardens. Great for a relaxing afternoon.

Get up there from Trastevere. Don't take a taxi, you'll miss half the wonders on the way. It's a pretty steep climb, and it will seem longer than it really is, but it's worth it. All of it. Oh, and, by the way, that building with a huge wrought iron gate guarded by the smirking Italian soldier is one of... More

If you walk from piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere it should take you about 25 minutes. It's very do-able BUT it is a winding road. There is a spectacular fountain before you enter the piazza with great views but much better views from the piazza. Every day at 12 o'clock solders roll out the canon and fire it once only... More

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.
