Fodor's Review

The Gianicolo is famous for its panoramic views of the city, a noontime cannon shot, and statues of Giuseppe and Anita Garibaldi (the guiding spirit behind the unification of Italy in the 19th century, and his long-suffering wife). The view, with the foothills of the Appennini in the background, is especially breathtaking at dusk. It's also a great view for dome-spotting, from the Pantheon to the myriad of city churches. It all looks very peaceful and pastel from up here.
