I don't think I would climb the hill just to see the lighthouse as it is only comparatively small and not a sight you can go up. That said, it is a beautiful piece of architecture with stunning views across Rome all along the walk...More

As you come down the road from the Piazzale Garibaldi towards St. Peters, you will come across this beautiful lighthouse. It is odd to see this lighthouse on top of the Gianicolo Hill. It was built in 1911 as a gift from Italians living in...More

We walked up here after reading about the views. It's not the easiest of climbs in places so I can imagine it wouldn't be much fun for some people but the views once you get to there are amazing. You can see the whole city...More

If you go wlaking, prepare to a somewhat hard way up. But it worth the view. You can see most of the monuments and it is a quit place surrounded by nature. There were no bathrooms up there and just some places selling water and...More

You can see all the major attractions from up here so it gives you a good overall view of the city. It certainly is a great place to take panoramic photos! It is a bit of steep climb up to the site but I am...More

Beautiful view of Rome but a difficult climb unless you are in shape. The history of this light house is interesting. It was given to the people of Rome by the Italians who came here from Argentina. Beautiful fountain along the way, as well as...More

OK, so the monument is a lighthouse and is nothing special compared to what is available in Rome, but, the view over Rome is amazing and very nice indeed. You can see the whole layout of Rome in front of you i really is worth...More

As a part of a more extensive walk in the Colle del Gianicolo (Janiculum Hill), the lighthouse merits a quick glance. It was a gift of the Italian diaspora in Argentina (the largest immigrant community in this country) made in 1911. The lighthouse is sometimes...More

Great place to go to at sunset, a hike but definitely worth it when you reach the top! Good picture opportunity and a romantic place to go.

Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and
overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible
mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable

Hi. We went to the lighthouse from the St Peter square. If I remember we walked for 20-25 minutes. We saw a lot of cars and buses, so I suppose there are public buses that going in the lighthouse. Download the application... More
