Myself and my wife decided to use this route to get to Harry's Bar. The trees provide lots of shade and there are fountains galore to look at, there's also a water clock. The gardens are a must see delight for anyone coming to Rome. The gardens are huge with what must be hundreds of busts of famous people. This... More

Enjoyed walking along the statue-lined avenues of these gardens. Piazza Napoleone gives a terraced area from which you can see across the city as far as St Peter's and beyond. Cafes, refreshment kiosks and toilets available. Short walk from the Spanish Steps.

We called after a wonderful visit to the gallery. It was quite busy but managed to get some great pictures. It was a little spoiled by sellers and someone playing loud music but worth it for the views. Easy walk back down to the Metro.

This is a wonderful place to look over the Spanish Steps. Further on, you look over Piazza del Popolo. There lotsof people at the Spanish Steps end but the further you go the quieter it gets. I went with my friends and felt safe and secure.

The Pincio Gardens on Monte Pincio are 16½ acres that are criss-crossed by shady paths and avenues lined with 228 marble busts of famous Italians. Unfortunately many of the busts have been vandalized and defaced, either by graffiti or by having their heads or battered, or both. But it’s still interesting to walk through the Gardens to see the various... More

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! :)

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.
