The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Trastevere
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.

The best view of Colle Del Gianicolo
Dec 2019 • Solo
The best view of Colle Del Gianicolo and Trastevere is from the top of Castel Sant’Angelo. Very photogenic place and beautiful park to walk to for the great views of Rome from the summit of the hill.

Spectacular views
Feb 2020
You can walk to the Gianicolo from the Vatican all up hill but well worth it. You can also take a bus. The views are absolutely spectacular. You can see right across the city picking out the famous landmarks. From there you can walk downhill to the beautiful Trastevere.

Boom - it's midday
Jan 2020
Every day at noon, the canon fires (blancs of course) across the city a tradition since 1847, on the order of Pope Pius IX. In addition to a spectacular view there is an interesting park with the statue of Giuseppe Garibaldi on his horse and along the road nearby busts of famous soldiers who died in the process of the unifaction of the various states and the battles that ensued. Further along can be found Giuseppe's wife Anita also on horse-back, a pistol in one hand her baby in the other - some girl!

Freindly Family Hotel
Apr 2019
We had a great stay at the Hotel nice room with great bathroom and a view from every window, Hotel is surrounded by a very nice garden where you can sit outside on the backside of the Hotel a beautifull swimming pool, though it was not really summer yet, we had some good sunny days to walk the City of Rome and even took a dip in the Pool, refreshing. Everything in walking or bus distance. Around the corner a really nice restaurant and lunchplace.

Very fine view
Sep 2019
At the top of the Janiculum Hill, you find a large Garibaldi Monument. Moreover, the view to the centre of Rome is very fine. Do not miss the view to St Peters Church opposite to the view to the city centre.

Best for general views of Rome
Sep 2019
Volle di Gianicolo is the best place to have an overview over the city from a vantage point that isn’t too far out of the center of town.
Evening light is especially nice because it light up the city from behind you.

Beautiful Rome of Rome
Aug 2019 • Couples
A stunning spot for panoramic views of Rome.
There are kiosks available to enjoy drinks/cocktails. We visited here during the day and at night. Worth a visit at night as it has a lovely atmosphere and outdoor bar is open.
A fantastic walk back into Central Rome also.

Great view of Rome
May 2019 • Couples
We took the hike up to the top of the hill for some views, we weren't expecting to be able to see much since it had rained most of the day, but we were not disappointed when we got to the top. The views were beautiful, and the best part was hardly anyone was there, so we got to soak it all in without tons of other people around. Definately a good stop.

Lovely view of Rome
May 2019 • Couples
This hill on the southeast side of the city between Vatican and Trastevere gives lovely view of the old city. It is a steep walk up - we took a taxi going up on the westside/Vatican and walked down to Trastevere.

bellissimo
Jan 2019 • Friends
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 a new perspective, and is precisely why I am recommending this spot in particular.

There’s plenty more to enjoy than just the city view. If you’re lucky enough to be in Piazzale Giuseppe Garibaldi at noon, you can witness the firing of the canon. While here, I’d suggest stopping by the Tempietto di Bramante, an architectural jewel in my opinion. Here you can enjoy one of the most beautiful displays of high renaissance art.also the little church san Pietro in Montorio is interesting,many people go there to get married, one of the best view of Rome
