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

The Pincio Gardens have an almost mystical quality. Though this spot is often very crowded with fellow visitors and locals too, you can find a bench in the shade and sit and relax as you take it all in, all the while feeling completely unstressed. The best way to see the Pincio Gardens may be to take the steps leading... More

Try this with your kids or your friends - it is so much fun, and makes you feel just a little bit like a Roman, as you tour around the park seeing families and couples enjoying this oasis in Rome.

The Pincio's Garden and terrace, easily accessible by climbing the long staircase that starts from Piazza del Popolo up to the terrace that overlooks the square. This is a magical place, a mix of poetry and romance, in fact, once you reached the gardens you will literally bewitched by the beauty of the 180 degree panoramic view across the ''eternal... More

A wonderful place to relax and wander around away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Almost 300 busts are dotted around the park, often surrounded by flowers and invariably with their noses missing. The view across Rome towards the Vatican is breathtaking. I also enjoyed a bit of live music while I was up there! Whatever you do,... More
