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

Head up here for sunset and bring your camera! This is an absolutely beautiful spot overlooking the city. Great way to spend an evening! Plan to come here for sunset. Arrive a few minutes early to get a good spot on the balcony overlooking the city. It's not too crowded but still attracts a few people. Expect company. The gardens... More

We finished our day here after Trevi fountain, Spanish steps and Piazza del Polopo. You get a good view of the Piazza and the rest of Rome from here as it is on a hill and there was a dude with an acoustic guitar providing good music to just relax and wind down. Potentially very romantic.

If you need a break from cars, many people and sidewalks during a long day, this is the place to go. Behind this wonderful view over the city a big park with grass and many statues is your chance to take a small break before going on with seeing Rome.

The view from the gardens is just amazing. It is so worth the climb. Whether you are coming from the Spanish steps or the Piazza del Popolo, it is a must see. It is so close. I went just before dusk. I was met with a beautiful view of the Piazza ; then I got to see as far as... More

One of two great free places to view the city and roof tops, Janiculum the other, is relaxing spot to waste a few hours midday. Walk to the west to view the city and through the park to relax in a quiet area of Rome
