Rome Attractions Janiculum Hill

Posted 28.03.2014 by Leigh

Address: Janiculum Hill, Piazza Giuseppe Garibaldi, 00165 Rome, Italy.

The Janiculum Hill in Rome (Italian: Gianicolo) is often called the 'Eighth Hill of Rome', as it lies just outside the ancient city's walls and was not part of the 'Seven Hills of Rome' which formed Ancient Rome. Originally it was thought to the centre for the cult of the god Janus, because of its outstanding views of the city and beyond and the priests would have look for signs from Janus. More recently, it was the battleground where Giuseppe Garibaldi held of the French army for several weeks (1849) and one of the hill's main monuments is dedicated to him. Today it is a popular place to stroll around and to take in some of the city's most breathtaking views.
