We visited Colosseum and then decided to walk up countless steps on a hot day to Monte Pincio! But it was one of the best things we did. Enjoyed views and it was s bit cooler at the top. We could see the Vatican and all sorts of neat places of Rome. First, Peoples Square is gorgeous and second, Rome... More

Our tour guide took us to these gardens and I am glad she did. The busts of various famous Italians but the view is worth writing home about. There are 228 busts but we only had time to view a few. It is also villild with greenery and flowers. Napoleon ordered these gardens which were built between 1810 and 1818.... More

We had to catch a train out to Rome at 10:00, so we were trying to find something to do before that. Monte Pincio isn't a place you would spend a lot of time at and it's not necessarily an amazing city-view either. We were able to see our hotel and the vatican, but after a quick photo, we were...

Late afternoon makes it hard to take advantage of vista. But really nice spot to chill and enjoy rooftops and taller monuments in Rome.

From Piazza Del Popolo walk up the stairs, or alternatively enter the Gates of Queen Christina and enjoy a walk in Villa Borghese. Either way you get to the Pincio, the once upon a time jet set of XIX Century Roman aristocracy. Day time you see mostly kids skipping school to meet with their boyfriends and girlfriends, afternoons and evenings... More

This view site is at the South West corner of the Gardens of Villa Borghese. It offers magnificent views over Rome and its skyline, including the dome of St Peter’s Basilica. Plan your trip so that you visit the gardens first, then wander to the Pincio and then down the steps to the Piazza del Popolo. From there you van... More

Our hotel recommended we visit Monte Pincio. Our first attempt was during the early afternoon in mid 90s heat and humidity. Needless to say we chickened out. Two days later we went back in the evening. Even then it was warm enough that the climb was a bit rough, but the view from the top was worth it. I took... More

We climbed up the hill during a heat wave. We were about to bail, and then we got to the top. Wow! Great views. A park with interesting busts of all the "celebrities" of a bygone ear. Refreshing breezes, a swanky restaurant, busking musicians. A relief after an oppressively hot day traveling in Rome. Great photo op. Go near sunset.... More

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.
