    1.8km from downtown
    "On the penultimate day in Rome, the attractions that should be punched in are almost the same, and finally I have to find a different niche place to see; This Roman alley city walk of Q tour is very good, but I went by myself, followed the G map, 80 [%] places have gone, saving a lot of silver, this viewing platform, I really very solemn, strong, serious recommend everyone to come ❗️ The scenery is good, nothing to say, The view is very wide, all major buildings can have a panoramic view, there are many foreign tourists here, and the Chinese people are basically ️~"
    Highlights: The main sight on the hill is the church of San Pietro in Montorio. The grape trellis in the church garden is very interesting. There is also a small church built by the Renaissance master Bramante in the garden, whose style is reminiscent of the Cathedral of Florence. In the back chapel there is said to be a cross of San Pietro on an upside-down cross. From the small square in front of this church, you can see the streetscape of Rome. The Tiber River meanders from left to right. Vittoriano with white walls on the right and Monte Mario Hill with the observatory on the left. In the middle are some monuments. This is a tree-lined street that leads to Piazza Garibaldi. Lined on either side of the street are busts of patriots who, like Garibaldi, died in the Italian unification movement. There is an equestrian statue of Garibaldi in the square at the end of the street. The view of Rome from here is excellent. On Sunday afternoons, in the shade of the square, there will be a puppet show similar to a foreign film, and many people who travel with children often come to see it.

  • No.8

    Monte Testaccio

    6 Reviews
    2km from downtown
    "I was part of an archaeological team that excavated here in 2011, so I have different things to say about Monte Testaccio than most people would. It's not open to the public and from the outside it just looks like a huge pile of dirt with some trees on it (it's actually made of ancient amphorae), but it is a truly fascinating place and has had a big impact on the area in general."
    Highlights: Like the four-leaf clover, for Europeans, clay/pottery products are also auspicious things that can bring luck. The mountain of pottery in Rome (in the ancient Roman language, Testaccio means clay) is actually made of pottery products more than a thousand years ago. It used to be a trading market in ancient Rome. At that time, food, oil and wine were of course not in plastic bags, but in oval earthen pots with narrow necks or other earthenware containers, and then passed through the Tiber River. Wade all the way to Rome. The useless pots were thrown aside. By the end of the 4th century AD, the pottery piece mountain was basically formed. At present, the pottery piece mountain has a circumference of about 1 km and a height of 45 meters. The older pottery vessels on the mountain came from Baetica in ancient Rome and were mainly used to hold olive oil. Manufacturers' stamps and other markers can also be identified on these pottery vessels, allowing archaeologists and sociologists to analyze the economic details of ancient Rome at the time. It is estimated that the mountain of pottery pieces was made of 53 million pots.
