Only by entering the streets, squares and alleys of the historic center of Rome one can sense its Great Beauty. But if you really want to understand how majestic the eternal city is, then we suggest you to reach the most panoramic points of the capital, from which to embrace, in a single glance, the magic of Rome literally at your feet!
PANORAMIC TERRACE OF THE ORANGE GARDEN
For the more romantic the terrace in the Savello Park on the Aventine is the right choice! In the small but delightful green space, known to most as Giardino degli Aranci (because it is rich in bitter orange trees), there is a terrace facing the Janiculum and presenting Tiberina Island and the Ghetto at its feet: from here it will seem to touch the original square dome of the largest synagogue in Europe!
PANORAMIC TERRACE MUSE CAPITOLINI
Unknown to the most and reachable without the obligation to visit the museums, it presents before itself all the grandeur of the area of the Foro Olitorio, where the Teatro di Marcello, built by Augustus for his beloved nephew, still stands out as an absolute protagonist .
PANORAMIC TERRACE OF PINCIO
Famous is the terrace of Pincio, immersed in the park of Villa Borghese, directly overlooking Piazza del Popolo and, thanks to the exceptional light of the typical Roman summer sunsets, it becomes one of the most envied views in the world!
PANORAMIC TERRACE OF THE FARNESIAN HORTI
Go to the top of the Palatine Hill and look out over the panoramic terraces of the Horti Farnesiani. The noble Roman family did not choose this place by chance to build their residence. On one side you can admire all the charm of the buildings and buildings that are located right at the foot of the Capitol and the Victorian, on the other the view will spread over the entire area of the Forums to the Colosseum and Colle Oppio!
PANORAMIC TERRACE OF TRINITY OF MOUNTAINS
Another sensational vantage point is undoubtedly Trinità dei Monti. From the top of the eighteenth-century staircase in fact, Piazza di Spagna will completely change its appearance! And for the most “lazy” there are no excuses, just use the elevator to climb up without effort! The walk along the avenue leading to Villa Medici is also highly recommended: unusual views of the old town await you and the skyline of the domes of the churches is truly spectacular from here!
GIANICOLO OVERVIEW TERRACE
From the Janiculum Hill, located behind Trastevere, thanks to its strategic position overlooking the river, you can admire a breathtaking view of the entire city. From here it is possible to recognize the Basilica di San Pietro, the immense dome of the Pantheon, the portentous bulk of the Vittoriano and much more.
PANORAMIC TERRACE “LO ZODIACO” IN MONTE MARIO
Simply the highest point in Rome. Here you will be able to enjoy the most enchanting and romantic view of the whole city! So far the terraces with free access. But if we are willing to pay a few euros, the options increase!
VITTORIAN PANORAMIC TERRACE
On the top of the Vittoriano, the monument built in memory of Vittorio Emanuele II, there are in fact extraordinary panoramic terraces that offer a unique setting on the city center (actually up to Eur), but above all on the heart of ancient Rome. Since 2007 two panoramic lifts allow you to reach the highest point of the monument but, if you suffer from vertigo, be careful!
PANORAMIC TERRACE OF THE CUPOLONE
A classic is then obviously the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica. A long spiral ascent, called the “Sant’Andrea snail” leads to the outer Gallery of the Dome, from which you can admire a 360 ° panorama of the city!
