Look over the rooftops of Rome at Colle del Gianicolo, set on a hill that extends all the way to the Basilica of St. Peter. You'll be high enough to see the major monuments and smaller side streets. Every day at noon a single cannon announces midday from the hill. For a preview of your visit, watch the opening scene of the film "The Great Beauty," which shows the attraction in all its glory. To visit Colle del Gianicolo and get the most from your holiday in Rome, create itinerary details personal to you using our Rome day trip planner.

Every tourist should get there to have a proper panoramic view of Rome. Especially if visiting in couples, the view this panoramic point offers it's priceless. You can easily get there, as it's right next to the center, there's a bus stop nearby. There are a few kiosks serving food and beverages, nothing fancy but still acceptable. Do not adventure in the darks surroundings at night. You want to visit when it's not busy, so avoid weekends or get there late at night.
