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.

Colle del Gianicolo Reviews
Après le Trastavere il nous semblait évident de monter sur la colline de Janicule. Légère montée, puis panorama sur la quasi totalité des monuments romains. Au crépuscule, c'est idéal pour les photos,... more »After the Trastavere it seemed obvious to us to climb the hill of Janicule. Slight climb, then panorama on almost all roman monuments. At dusk, it's ideal for photos, and romantic ballads There is a nice park, with fountains and small statuettes, unfortunately poorly maintained, and an empty can attracting another, the effect "vacuum" at the level of garbage has unfortunately has its effect in this park, too bad. It should be noted, however, that there are more than 80% of tourists, so who should blame it. But that doesn't spoil the view
La fatica per arrivarci a piedi non vale la pena farla!! Il panorama è una semplice vista dall’alto da cui si distinguono pochi edifici di Roma (almeno per chi non è della città e non la conosce bene)... more »The effort to get there on foot is not worth it!! The view is a simple view from above from which a few buildings in Rome stand out (at least for those who are not of the city and do not know it well). Once you get there after half an hour of walking (and a lot to do uphill) there is nothing but a small rooftop terrace with some stalls.
