This area is not easily accessed by public transportation, but the walk up to the top on Via Giacinto Carini is well worth it. You are surrounded by lovely views of the Alban Hills. Make sure that you go to Villa Lante before you leave the area, where you can get the best view of the city. The 'Fontana dell'Acqua Paola' is one of Rome's prettiest and biggest and is the centerpiece of the area. A cannon fires from 'Gianicolo' at midday each day to mark this historic battle for Rome. BUS: 115 or 870 to the top or 44 and 75 to Via Giacinto Carini
