  • As monumental statues go, it's fairly impressive, but like many of the minor sights of Rome, it's only worth a quick look if you're nearby.  more »
  • Wanted to avoid throngs of tourists and enjoy a nice walk on a beautiful day so decided to walk up Gianicolo Hill. The views of Rome here are nice but honestly I thought the view from the small park....  more »
  • You have to visit this place, probably after the Vatican city because it's very close. Amazing view of the city, where you can see the Pantheon, vitorio Emmanuelle, etc. The hill itself plays a very important role during the battles for unified Italy. It is a must see place!!
  • It's not the Monument which were breathtaking but the view. You had a really good view over Rome. If you have free time and motivation I would recommend it.
