The Gianicolo is a hill in Rome that is not included in the list of the 7 Roman hills where the tradition says was founded.
It is located on the bank of the Tiber.
Its name seems to derive from the god Janus who founded a town called Ianiculum.
It became an integral part of the city only at the time of Augustus.
Although the area remained sparsely inhabited and mainly occupied by villas and gardens.
The Gianicolo Hill has always had a very strong symbolic value.

Exactly in the place where the Church of St Peter in Montorio stands today.

Touring Gianicolo Hill
Along the Gianicolo Walk that leads up to St Pancrazio Gate, stands the Gianicolo Lighthouse.
Is also known as the Lighthouse of the Italians of Argentina or Lighthouse of Rome.
Built in 1911, 50 years after the creation of the Kingdom of Italy.
Is on a project by the architect Manfredo Manfredi, the lighthouse is due to the initiative of the Italians who emigrated to Argentina.
The intent was to pay homage to Italy and the new capital of Italy, Rome.
The Gianicolo Hill became very popular due to the important historical role it occupied in defending the city in late xix century.
Having become the scene of the battle in which Garibaldi fought the French troops, its summit is now full of sculptures in homage to the Italian patriot.
The best time to visit the Gianicolo Hill remains, however, at noon.
You can thus witness the firing of the cannon with blanks indicating the exact time.
Every day at 12 o'clock a loud shot is heard echoing throughout the city.
It is the famous shot from the cannon of the Gianicolo which for many years has been announcing to the Romans lunch time!
Piazza Garibaldi is fully accessible with ramps at every corner of the square itself.
The Gianicolo Belvedere is accessible and at a corner of the square there is also a bathroom accessible for the disabled.
