Pincio Terrace

Stroll along the statue-lined avenues of this 19th-century terrace and admire sublime views over the city.

Because of its elevated position, Pincio Terrace is an ideal place to watch the sun sink behind the domed buildings and terraced houses of the Roman skyline. Relax in the shade of the leafy park and check out the statues of famous war heroes and national icons.

The terrace was designed by local architect Giuseppe Valadier and built in 1816. A popular site for afternoon walks, it is the perfect place to unwind and take stock after a day of sightseeing.

The Pincio Terrace connects Piazza del Popolo, one of the biggest squares in the city, to the hillside. Climb the steps from the piazza and wander around the gardens beneath the terrace. Among the lush trees and colorful flowers are several statues. Check out the fountain inspired by reunification and the figure of Italian war hero Enrico Toti, which was erected in 1922. Look for three female figures among the mostly male sculptures. These are representations of the poet Vittoria Colonna, Saint Caterina da Siena and the writer Grazia Deledda.

Continue up to the terrace itself. Set above three archways, this cream-colored Baroque structure blends in with the white statues below and provides the perfect location from which to take in one of the most breathtaking views of the city.

Gaze down over the piazza far below and watch the bustling crowds moving between the sites. Peer further into the distance and try to pick out the high domed roof of St. Peter’s Basilica and the angelic figure that stands atop the Castel Sant’Angelo. One of the best times to come here is during sunset when the skies behind the Monte Mario, Rome’s highest hill, turn vivid with shades of orange, red and purple. This spot is an absolute must for keen photographers looking to get that iconic picture of Rome.

Pincio Terrace is located just behind the Piazza del Popolo. Take the metro to Flaminio. From here, the piazza is a 165-foot (50-meter) walk away. The terrace and adjoining gardens are open throughout the week and there is no admission charge.
