Go upstairs from Piazza del Popolo in order to admire the view of Rome and Batican... Your eye flies over Rome and you can see even St Peter. Is is easy to reach the park from Piazza del Popolo. Metro station Flaminio is very close. Villa Borghese is nearby and you can combine the two sightseeings.

This is another spot in Rome from where, as a tourist, you can have a wonderful view to Rome. When I usually go here, I prefer to walk up from Piazza del Popolo. Flaminio metro station is very close.

Some guidebooks and people suggest that the walk up from Piazza del Popolo is arduous but that is certainly not the case - if anything it is gentle. In any case, it is worth the walk up for the views from the terrace across Piazza del Popolo and over to the Vatican.

We walked to the Pincio gardens after walking from the Spanish steps and the shopping areas around them. This is a lovely park area, very peaceful and calm after the busy part of the city, with great views towards the Vatican and over the Piazza de Popolo. Maybe only a 30 min detour from our route but the photos we... More

This is an amazing place to have another overview of the city, specially for sunset because it's orientated to it. go for an ice cream, discover the park and get you cameras ready for the sunset!! :) Enjoy! :)

Went on our last day in Rome and it put the whole city in perspective for me. Great view of Piazza del Popolo. Stood here for ages picking out many of the sights we had visited on our previous days. The gardens are beautifully cool, quiet and peaceful after the chaos of sites such as the Spanish Steps. We climbed... More

This place gives a wonderful relaxed mood mixed with the excitement of the view over Piazza del Popolo and othere major sights. It can be a great stop after the Borghese Gallery or the National Gallery of Modern Art that are situated in its vicinity.

This was a classic end to the first day of Rome. Teens hang out here to watch the sunset and goof-off. There is a simple market and drink vendor out here. You can see most of Rome and the Piazza del Popolo. It was nice sitting on a bench drinking lemon soda, watching the Herring Gulls fly by. Be careful,... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
