Undoubtedly one of Rome’s most romantic spots, the Gianicolo (Janiculum) Hill rises up behind Trastevere and reaches as far as the Basilica of St. Peter’s. The panorama is here breathtaking: the view stretches over roofs, ancient ruins, monuments and baroque domes as far as the hills embracing the city.

While for art lovers the Tempietto del Bramante is an absolute must, given it is perhaps the best example of Renaissance architecture in Rome, naturalists should certainly visit the Orto Botanico (Botanical Gardens) with its over 8,000 different kinds of plants.

Every day, on top of the hill, a special canon fires blanks at noon on the hour. When the city is a little less noisy, especially during the summer, the sound of this shot may be heard as far as the Esquilino.

On the other side of the Gianicolensi walls we find Monteverde, a residential district flourishing with elegant villas where an enjoyable stroll is pleasing to the eye.

To the north of the district, along with Villa Sciarra, mention should be made of Villa Pamphilj, Rome’s largest public park. Surrounded by a citrus orchard and by the well-kept Italian gardens, the Casino del Respiro is simply a joy to see.
