The apartment Garibaldi is located in the middle of the same name street that leads, through Sant’Onofrio’s climb, to the main entrance of the Janiculum Hill, also known as “eighth hill”. Here it is possible to cherish one of the most suggestive view on the historical centre of Rome. On top of the hill the imposing equestrian statue of Garibaldi, that looks towards San Pietro with a provocative demeanor, commemorate the ferocious clashes of 1849 between the French troops that defended the Pope and the volunteers of the Roman Republic, led by Garibaldi and Mazzini.
Just before arriving to Porta di San Pancrazio, there it is one of the symbols of the city, the Fontana dell’Acqua Paola (Fontanone), represented in various films like Three coins in the fountain (1954), Trastevere (1971) and La grande bellezza (2013). This monumental fountain was built to mark the end of the “Acqua Paola”’s aqueduct, and restored by the Pope Paul V between 1608 and 1610. The Janiculum promenade consists of two large plane tree-lined avenues that run along Villa Aurelia and reunite around Piazzale Garibaldi.
The area was once theatre of the heroical events of the fighters for the Roman Republic in 1849 and it was then converted in 1883 by the new Italian government in a public promenade, dedicated to the memory of the Defense of Rome. At the borders of the avenues the busts of the illustrious Garibaldi’s soldiers who fought for Rome in 1849 are situated. On Saturdays and Sundays the Teatrino di Pulcinella al Gianicolo is not to be missed. It is a theatre without tickets and showtimes. The show starts every time a small group of children gather and the protagonist is always the same: Pulcinella.
Where to eat
A wonderful smell inebriate you from the street: it is the smell of the brioches, the cakes and the bread of Giuseppe Solfrizzi who has recently opened “Le Levain”, bakery-boulangerie in Trastevere. The monoportion cakes are excellent as well as the sandwiches, the yeast products, the quiches for lunch and the macarons. If you are still in the mood for something sweet, you can stop at the ice shop “Fatamorgana”. This brand has a lot of stores all over the city and they all use local raw materials and craftsmanship. You can choose among many different flavours, from the most traditional ones to the refreshing original combinations.
At last we suggest you “L’Antica Pesa”, since 1922, for a very special dinner. The restaurant has a long history, dating back to the 17th century, when in Trastevere the customs of the pontifical State used to collect taxes on wheat; the ancient customs officier decided to create a sort of refreshment point that provided bread and wine to the numerous peasants who used to pass through the customs house. This is the reason for the curious name “Antica Pesa”, introduced at the end of the 19th century when the customs was converted in a real tavern. Here you can find all the traditional roman dishes and some reinterpretations of the local products. The atmosphere is very evocative thanks to the contemporary paintings on the walls and the inner garden.
