Piazzale Garibaldi Tours

At the very top of the Janiculum Hill in Rome is Piazzale Garibaldi, which has a bronze statue of Giuseppe Garibaldi at its center.

The Janiculum Hill (Gianicolo in Italian) is not one of Rome’s ancient seven hills, but today is one of the best places to get an exceptional view over the city. Piazzale Garibaldi is at the top of the hill, surrounded by a road and some parking spaces.

The equestrian statue in the middle of the piazza honors Garibaldi, the man who led the fight to unify Italy in the early 19th century. The main draw of the square, however, is the view over Rome. You can see everything from the Colosseum to St. Peter’s dome to the Vittoriano monument and much more.

Piazzale Garibaldi and the Janiculum Hill get particularly popular at sunset, so if you want to see the sun go down from the top of the hill make sure you give yourself enough time to walk or take the bus up there. During the day, some Trastevere tours include the Janiculum Hill on the itinerary, too.

Practical Info

Not far from the Piazzale Garibaldi is a quaint little puppet theater that has regular Italian puppet shows on weekends.
