Climbing up to the Pincio Gardens / Monte Pincio from Piazza de Populo is pretty easy up a gentle grade. From the nice green scape and tree covered hilltop you have great views over the piazza, the Tiber & onto St. Peter's. You can continue on into the Borghese from up above. Nice walking. ...

Vis-a-vis the park of Villa Borghese (you go from one to the other on a broad pedestrian bridge over the busy street several meters below). The Monte Pincio part is more like a garden, while Villa Borgese is more natural park-like. Both are excellent for resting, Monte Pincio also have an excellent view over the city centre.

This park sits above the Piazza del Popolo and is worth the climb. The views are beautiful, the park is peaceful and statues are interestingly scattered throughout the park.

We walked through the park from the Villa Borghese following the signs to Pincio. The park is beautiful and the view of Rome and the Piazza del Popolo is wonderful.

This is something that needs to be seen in person. Words do not give it justice. It is totally awesome. Everyone just walked around in wonder to see the greatness that is all around. Hoping for a small peek at something special.

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.
