  • A scenic place to have view of rome city especially the central part. It provides beautiful view of saint peters dome. Other historic buildings can also be seen from here. Light snacks and drinks are also available at a small shop. Parking is available very close to view point. People with wheel chair can also approach the view point.
  • I was surprised how few people there were up here on a Friday lunchtime, since the views over the city are superb and it’s a nice enough park to relax in on it’s own right. There’s a number of drink stalls also selling snacks, buskers performing some live music and plenty of spots of sit and relax. Somewhat a hidden gem it feels but a must visit if you’re around the area.
