The view is great but, can't relax with all the guys selling selfie sticks. The sunset is really beautiful

We had a great week in Rome a few days ago. Our hotel was located next to The Spanish Steps. We discovered the Pincio Gardens on our third day in Rome when we took a stroll up the Spanish Steps and headed west towards the Piazza di Popollo when we passed the Gardens.

The sunset view from pincio was indeed lovely, but it wasn't quite as stunning as we had heard. Still worth a trip to see the multiple domes around rome to include St. Peters. Make sure you wear good shoes if you plan to walk the stairs.

Given the reviews I was a little disappointed in the gardens. I agree the views are stunning, but the gardens are more of a park. There was a lot of litter which distracted from the trees and surroundings. Also you need to keep a watchful eye open for Segways, bikes and golf carts zooming all over the place. I must... More

I'm from Rome, but have recently moved to the U.S. after marrying my wonderful husband. Surprisingly, among all the beautiful places I kept returning to or discovered with every walk I took while in the Eternal City, this is - shame on me - the one area I never really made the point to explore. I confess I did it... More

This is a wonderful park. We started at Piazza del Popolo for wonderful views and then meandered through the park to Villa Borghese . There were queues at the Villa so we did not go in ( warning you need a ticket to use the toilet facilities). On our way we past a replica of Shakespeare's Globe built at the... More

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.

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.
