Any trip to Rome is not complete without a trip up the Gianicolo hill. You can head up from Trastevere or near the Vatican for one of the best views of the city. On weekends it's crowded with teenagers, but if you can find one of the magical evenings where it's not so full, you will really feel as if the city is yours. Extra points for bringing someone to snog.Recommended for:
in my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful places to see in rome, is a park full of greenery, situated on a hill near Trastevere, a very romantic place, where you can see all of Rome at night with its lights, or day, a great view, a lasting memory of your vacation .... and soon after, you can go down to Trastevere, the old roma, dope can taste the typical Roman cuisine, and stroll through the narrow and ancient streets of the neighborhood where there are no shops open until midnight .. just great!!

The top of Gianicolo is a romantic place, a park rising high above Trastevere that offers a panoramic view of Rome. Couples kiss along a railing already marked by numerous love dedications while kids run about the numerous statues around the area. A convenient bus runs up and down the Passeggiata del Gianicolo, making it easy to scale Rome's second-tallest hill.Recommended for:

The Janiculum (Gianicolo in Italian) is a hill in western Rome, Italy. Although the second-tallest hill (the tallest being Monte Mario) in the contemporary city of Rome, the Janiculum does not figure among the proverbial Seven Hills of Rome, being west of the Tiber and outside the boundaries of the ancient city. The Hill is the location of the American University of Rome, Pontifical Urban University, and Pontifical North American College, as well as the Orto Botanico dell'Università di Roma "La Sapienza" and the Palazzo Montorio, residence of the Ambassadors of Spain.
Gainicolo is a large park on a hill on the west side of the Tiber. It is immediately southeast of the Vatican and overlooks the center of Rome. A great place to picnic. On our last day in Rome, a Sunday in March, we bought food and wine at Campo de Fiore and another nearby street market, walked across the river to Trastevere, and finally found our way up into the park. It was well worth the hike. We had a lovely picnic overlooking the city, and then walked up through the park to the Vatican and our nearby hotel.
