NileGuide Expert tip:
Avoid the evening lover's lane and head to the park for a beautiful sunrise...
- Without a doubt, the best view of the picturesque Trastevere district, Gianicolo Park is situated on the hill of the same name, and represents a necessary step in every real Roman Holiday! A spectacular mix of charm, nature, history and eternal beauty makes this park one of the best places for an amazing panorama of the city; its incredible view is only comparable to those of Pincio and the Orange Garden (Giardino degli Aranci). Frequently attended by romantic couples, Gianicolo Park also houses the historic Teatro dei Burattini (Puppet Theater) and some carousels for children, as well as several historical buildings and monuments - the Giuseppe Garibaldi memorial, the fountain of Acqua Paola, and also a cannon which fires once daily at noon, heralding the time.
