The Pincio gardens are located on a small hill, next to Popolo square. They feature lovely tranquil walk, beautiful views, a lot of local joggers and numerous Segway tours. The garden also feature some lovely villas, clocks, fountains and even an obelisk. Well worth a one-hour stroll.

The park was the highlight of our second trip to Rome. Away from all the touristic noise ; An oasis of quiet ! Nice walk, beautiful vegetation, even a little lake where you can rent a boat, restaurants, and more quiet.

Great city view! Definitely a good place to visit and see the layout of Rome. You can see the amazing city planning when you stand at the center of Pincio: the Obelisk and Via Ferdinando di Savoia line up perfectly and go directly towards the Vatican. Recommend coming here towards sunset for a beautiful view of the city at golden... More

Great walk from the Borghese gallery to the exit. Great views. Amazing Pincio hydraulic waterclock along the way in a very unique setting in the midst of a small pond. Clock is mounted in a small tower with pillars imitating tree trunks. Really blends in with the surrounding. Quite an intriquing apparatus when it was first install in the late... More

We actually reached this pebble- laden expanse by accident while trying to get out of Villa Borghese. Just as well, as we got a terrific view of Rome from here.The piazza Del Popolo looks fabulous from the terrace. We saw people go down from the terrace to the Del Popolo but could not find the way ourself.We therefore walked to... More

We reached Monte Pincio by climbing the steps from Piazza Del Popolo. The view is amazing of all the rooftops of Rome and you can see St Peters Square clearly on a sunny day. We did a tourist train that cost 3 euros and took you all around the park and the driver stopped at all the sights so you... More

If you've been to the Galleria Borghese or perhaps the Spanish Steps, you'll be in a high position overlooking the city - and this is the place to come to get a really good view and take some great photos, before you descend once again to the Piazza Del Popolo. There are a number of vantage points to select from,... More

A nice viewpoint (not only on Piazza del Popolo, but the skyline of Rome and Vatican City as well). Less crowds. A nice park. Nice in Rome terms of course, many other cities would love to have a spot like that.

From Piazza di Espana, i walk to Pinci Park, one of the nicest parks in Rome with a splendid vue to the piazza del Poppolo, view over Rome to the Vatican; I like very much pincio gardens, for spent an afternoon in the sun; Near the Villa Viladier, nice pads, fringed with dilapidated bust of classical heroes of Italy, plenty...

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
