Pincio Gardens (Monte Pincio)
Overlooking Rome’s Piazza del Popolo, the gardens on Pincio Hill have been present since the time of the ancient Romans. It is named for the Pincis, a noble Roman family whose estate was built on these grounds in the 4th century. The gardens were separated from the  neighboring Villa Borghese by an ancient wall. 

Filled with greenery, flowers, and bust statues of famous Italians, the present gardens were laid out in the 19th century.  Tree-lined avenues were once (and still are) a grand place to go for a stroll. There’s also an obelisk and historic water clock located in the gardens. They are accessed via a steep, winding path up from the city. Once at the top, you’ll have one of the best views of Rome, looking out to rooftops, piazzas, and St. Peter’s Basilica. The panoramic outlook is arguably best at sunset.

Practical Info

The Pincio Gardens are located on the western edge of Villa Borghese. The nearest metro stop is Flaminio. It is also accessible on foot from the top of the Spanish Steps.
