Gianicolo

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.

Trevi Fountain

Trevi Fountian

The name ‘Trevi’ means ‘three-ways’ and is said to refer to the junction of three roads on Piazza dei Cruciferi. There was also a famous Goddess named Trivia. She protected the streets of Rome and had three heads so she could see everything going on around her.  She would always stand on the corners where three streets met.

Colosseum, Rome


The Colosseum is listed as one of the New7Wonders of the World.

There are two facts impressed me mostly after visiting this tourist object.

This huge and complicated engineering construction has been built just in seven years. The Colosseum is an immense work of engineering, and needed professional, skilled workers. Slaves would only have been used in the quarries to quarry the stone needed.

Nowadays we can see just skeleton of that beautiful masterpiece. It happened not just because of time and nature disasters but people. All the numerous statues and marble tiles from exterior and interior decor have been robbed by Romans to build their own palaces. Even Vatican took place in that robbery.

Only one’s imagination can draw the real view of this Architectural, Engineering and Art Masterpiece.
