Let’s talk about: the 5 views not to be missed in Rome
Are you back from the return and would you like to leave already?
Don’t worry. The advantage of living in Italy is that there is so much beauty at short or medium distances, and that we are there to help you organize your trip.
Today, for example, we want to take you to the Capital and tell you about it from an unusual point of view: that of the most beloved scenic places of the city.
So here are the five most beautiful views of Rome, according to us. All free!
The Cabinet of the Mayor of Rome effortlessly wins the title of office with the best view in the world: the one on the Imperial Forums and on one of the most famous and recognizable monuments of the planet, the Colosseum. You can freely access the back of the Capitoline Palace and look out from the balcony overlooking the Forum. Needless to say, before your eyes will open a unique show in the world. The temple of Saturn, that of the Dioscuri, the altar of Caesar, the rostrums, the Basilica of Maxentius, the Senate, the Amphitheater in the background, it is not possible to mention all the buildings of the Forum on which you will place your gaze. But one thing is certain: you will never forget.
A gun that shoots blanks every day at 12.00, from 119 years, the tomb of Goffredo Mameli, the Mausoleum of the Garibaldi Ossuary, the equestrian monuments to Garibaldi and Anita: all this is the Gianicolo. Although it is 88 meters high, it is not considered among the seven traditional hills, but it is certainly an exceptional observatory for the Romans, as well as one of the most romantic.
The Terrace of the Pincio
Romanticism, we said: in Rome one of the synonyms of this word is certainly the Pincio, one of the favorite windows of the city. Although it is not very high, the Terrace offers a view of Piazza del Popolo, on a part of Via del Corso and the surrounding streets. A real gem, easily reachable from the main monuments of the city for a bite-and-run photo or for a sunset walk.
Trinità dei Monti
The staircase of Piazza di Spagna is crossed every year by thousands of steps: it leads to the church of Trinità dei Monti and with it constitutes one of the most popular images of the city. If you want to avoid chaos, we recommend that you go early in the morning. If you want to enjoy one of the Roman sunsets, you’ll have to share the steps with many people. Don’t worry, it’s worth it!
The Garden of the Oranges
The Savello Park, little known to tourists, is located near the convent of Santa Sabina. It is an orange grove whose viewpoint gives a postcard of the dome of St Peter’s that has no rivals. We recommend you go by car, the uphill walk may prove prohibitive for the less trained.
