The Great Beauty
Rome may be known for its seven hills but there are a few more in its landscape; one not to miss is the Gianicolo (Janiculum). Located above the Trastevere neighborhood, the Janiculum looks over the entire city in a sweeping panorama. The best place to take advantage of the scene and take some photos is Piazza Garibaldi, a large roundabout best known for its monumental equestrian statue of 19th century Garibaldi. This is also the firing spot of the cannon shot that marks noontime every day without fail. From sunset to dusk, the piazza is an elbows-room only lovers’ lane and photo op.
