Janiculum hill, the beauty and the myth (in English)
Just outside the ancient city, theProtected content is a great place to visit to get away from the bustle of Rome, not to mention the superb views of the city from the top of the hill.
Protected content is important for many reasons: historical (Garibaldi’s forces fought against the French troops), mythological (its name comes from the two-faced god Janus), religious (it was formerly thought to be the site of St Peter's crucifixion), cinematographic (it was a set of Oscar winning movie The Great Beauty) and so on.
That being said, it’s not surprising that on this hill there is really much to see (fountains, churches, shrines, lighthouses, cannons, foreign institutions etc.)
Hope you will enjoy it !
