Rome from the above

Janiculum Hill, considered by many as the eighth hill of Rome, is a peaceful and refreshing attraction close to the city center. As you walk up its pathways, you’ll enjoy superb views of the city.

Janiculum became very popular due to the important historical rolethat it played in the defence of the city. Becoming the setting for the battle in which Garibaldi repelled an attack from French troops, its paths are full of sculptures of the heroes, including Giuseppe Garibaldi.

Gianicolo Hill

Gianiculum Terreca is the best place to observe Rome from the above. It is not only for that purpose there are a lot of interesting things to see there.  The Park of famous people busts, the beautiful sycamore alleys, lighthouse, and of course the best view of St. Peter’s Cathedral Dome.

Love is flying above the city and you can see that all over around the Gianicolo Hill.

  4. Beautiful! That beautiful light! Reminds me that I should return to Rome one day soon. By the way I had a similar experience in Athens. In the midst of the rather busy and noisy city there were ancient parks where you really felt transported back in time, so peaceful, with beautiful views…

    • Thank you!
      Rome is one of the desirable city for coming back. I believe the southern cities have a lot in common with the sun light. This is why our imagination can lead us to our memories of previous experience.
