Janiculum

The Janiculum of Rome (Gianicolo), the second-tallest hill in the city, is not considered to be one of the “Seven Hills” of old (due to its location outside of the classic boundaries of Rome), residing west of the winding Tiber. The hill is visited by so many people because it is one of the best places to get a spectacular view of the city and its many churches during the day, or when modern Rome is sparkling with lights at night. The name Janiculum comes from the Roman god Janus (he being the two-faced god of thresholds). One doesn’t have to have too fantastical an imagination to put themselves in ancient times in the foothills surrounding the city of Rome.

  • Enjoy the view of Rome from the top of Janiculum with your family, and make sure to take your children to the puppet theatre: Teatrino di Pulcinella al Gianicolo.
  • Tour the Aurelian Wells and mills in this area, which have the unique designation of being the largest ancient remains of industry.
  • Enter the extravagant San Pietro in Montorio, dedicated to St. Peter; it marks the site where St. Peter was martyred in Rome.

Although there is public transportation throughout the city of Rome to most locations, it is difficult to get to Janiculum Hill near Trastevere. Public transportation can take you to the hill, but the best way to get to the top of the hill is to walk or hire a car. Visitors should be aware that there is very limited parking at the top of Janiculum Hill. Also, the Number 8 tram will transport tourists to the area, and taxis are available. Wheeling and dealing through Roman traffic can be difficult, so driving a rental car is not necessarily advised.
