  • Rome: The City of Eternal Love

    The Gianicolo Hill

    Gianicolo Hill
    Credits - Sergio Battista
    The climb to the top of Gianicolo Hill is a little steep but well worth it for one of the most stunning panoramas in Rome. There are several viewpoints along the way, starting with the incredible Fontana dell'Acqua Paola nearby. Also dubbed "Il Fontanone" (literally "the big fountain"), it was built by Pope Paul V  to provide water to the local residents. Locals also used to bathe here, and although it might seem like a tempting skinny-dipping spot, bathing in the fountain is now (unfortunately) strictly forbidden.

    Address: Via del Gianicolo

    Monte Mario and "The Path of Lovers"

    Monte Mario
    Appreciate one more sweeping view of the city from the top of another fabled hill, that of Monte Mario, the highest in Rome. This viewpoint is also known as "the path of lovers", no doubt due to all the lovebirds that make the romantic pilgrimage to this spot. This is also the home of Monte Mario Observatory, and therefore an excellent place for stargazing with your sweetheart.

    Address: Riserva Naturale di Monte Mario

    Opening times: from sunrise to sunset
