  • Every tourist should get there to have a proper panoramic view of Rome. Especially if visiting in couples, the view this panoramic point offers it's priceless. You can easily get there, as it's right next to the center, there's a bus stop nearby. There are a few kiosks serving food and beverages, nothing fancy but still acceptable. Do not adventure in the darks surroundings at night. You want to visit when it's not busy, so avoid weekends or get there late at night.
