    The Janiculum (Gianicolo) Hill (Colle) contains a large park area with pleasant walking paths, scenic overlooks, and historic monuments to those who fought for the unification of Italy. It is also where the Botanic Gardens are located. It is adjacent to both Trastevere and the Vatican yet it is pleasantly devoid of tourists. First time visitors to Rome are unlikely to make this a priority stop but returning visitors might want to see Rome from this perspective, especially on a nice day.

    We found this place by accident. We were wandering through the lovely Villa Borghese, heading towards the Piazza del Popolo and wondering how we were going to get down the hill to the square. That's when we came to this look-off point. The views of the Piazza and of Rome were very nice.

    But this is also a pleasant place on its own. There were lots of people milling around, enjoying the sounds of a street musician, having drinks and picnics. A good place to relax after a hike through the gardens or to just people-watch.

    My wife and myself are currently holidaying in Rome staying at the Romanico Palace Hotel (Review to follow) and a good local friend took us on a drive to see of the sights we wouldn’t ordinarily see.

    One of these involved peeping through a Keyhole from which you can see St Peter’s Basilica! What was even more interesting was that it was a rainy evening and there was a queue of people in front of us - all of whom had walked some distance for the Keyhole experience!

    As was early evening - and a wet one at that - the view was not very clear so we’ll ensure we return to the Keyhole on a nice, sunny day (when our friend informs us the queue can be 50 yards long or more!) the next time we’re in Rome!!

    Park was a nice break from all the crowds, nice walking area. Highly recommend. Several blocks away there is a cute restaurant with nice drinks and sitting area.

    The Appian Way is well worth exploring for a different view of Rome. Outside the city is pleasant countryside where you can see the old Roman road, including a part with original paving. There are also ruined mausoleums in pleasant parkland. We took the bus out and then walked part of the way on a sunny but not hot afternoon - don't try this in high summer!

    Stunning place with lovely views. Glorious smells and just a beautiful place. So glad I went. The main gate was closed and I went the long way around to get in (accidentally) and then got lost coming out. Right next to Circus Maximus so the location is amazing. Highly recommended.

    The zoo is ok. Not as bad as some of the reviews make out. The reptile house was the highlight. The elephants feeding wad fun and the toilets were fine. The restaurants are ok - not too expensive.

    Felt very safe, but maybe not 100% as it is an open area with zero police/security presence. Would definitely do it again. I think it may be possible to get to the Catacombs from within this park. A very nice place. A bit out of town, which required a taxi in both directions for us. Perhaps there is a bus or subway that I didn't know of. Free. Good to get some exercise with some shade. I don't recall seeing any food options, but I didn't look very hard. There are a few different aqueducts of different sizes. Some of them you can get close to. People walk dogs here.

    A must see. Wasn’t too crowded when we went which meant a breath of calm amidst a busy tourist area. Breathtaking views across Rome!

    Located near the Castel Sant Angelo this little island in the river Tiber is nice to have a look at. There is a ruined bridge (Ponto Rotto) from Roman times on onze side. Views from the walkway near the waterfront are nice. There are some bars on the island.

    After having watched a cover on TV about Villa Torlonia and especially concerning the time when il Duce&family lived there, we decided to visit Villa Torlonia. (Underground bunker wasn't open to public with "normal" entrance tickets, maybe only groups with guided tours like for the theatre, can see the bunker).

    Visiting Villa Torlonia was a great idea! Already the +/- 30 min. walk from the Diocletian Baths to villa Torlonia was very interesting, calm, well kept residential area with plenty of gorgeous palazzi to admire! Many of them are embassies right now.

    Villa Torlonia is in fact a huge complex!
    Buy a combiticket for villa, owls house, casino.

    The park can be visited for free (we saw families having lunch/picknick in the shadow of the trees, some joggers were running around ...). The park looked in desperate need of landscaping, a lot of weeds, no water in the small abandoned lake close to the theatre .... not really a "garden like" park, but the dry weather doesn't help to improve the situation.

    Visit includes the spectacular main house/villa, a lot to admire inside, on the 2nd floor you can also see art (Roman school).

    Casino hosts a temporary "art"!? exhibition, very quick visit ...

    Casina delle Civette/Owls house, very special. A lot of multicoloured windows to have a look at. For my personal taste however limit "kitsch".

    We enjoyed our over 2 hours visit to Villa Torlonia very much as it was a special place to spend quality vacation time away from the stressful actual Roman mass tourism 🌞

    To return to Roma Termini we took the bus 82 opposite the main entrance on Nomentena.

    Recommend a visit of the Villa Torlonia.

    But be warned that the limonaia-"restaurant" in the Villa Torlonia park isn't a highlight for a nice pit stop, terrible service, maybe a quick drink at the counter and then bye bye.

    We completely stumbled upon this by chance at the top entrance as we stayed nearby and had some hours to pass. It’s not the best for botanic garden as in the butterfly house was closed, as was a couple of the other greenhouse however for 5Euro cannot complain. The poison garden made us chuckle with signs saying toxic but no restrictions to touch. Having Been to Alnwick poison garden the Italian lax store was amusing. Lovely for a couple of hours stroll if in Trastavere area

    We liked our walk along the tiber/lungotevere in the shadow of the old trees. Watch your step, because "sidewalks" are dangerous in some places.

    Some good options for picture taking ... (bridges, castel San Angelo ...).

    Beautiful, small garden with nice view. It was crowdy, but still wanderful. Worthwile visiting it, especially if you do not want to wait too long to take a glimps through famous keyhole which is close to this garden.
