In the green of the countryside Valley's Natural Park and just minutes from the Vatican and the center of Rome

The Valle dei Casali is a green corridor inside an urban area that extends from Villa Pamphili to the north and to the south bank of the Tiber.
The Valle dei Casali Nature Reserve is a valuable protected natural area embedded in the west quadrant of the city of Rome. It is the ideal continuation of Villa Doria Pamphilj, a great historical park from which is only a few meters away. Its name derives from the presence of many late sixteenth-century historic houses in its territory. The landscape is made up of a plateau that slopes down to the Tiber with a series of hills and ditches. In the areas that have escaped exploitation, among the other species, a semi-natural condition has been maintained, with oaks, maples, broom and alder trees. Among the most significant animal species, the deer, the barn, the hedgehog and the weasel. From an historical standpoint, the greatest interest in the area lies in the preservation of the articulated system of villas and houses. Of great interest is the estate of the eighteenth-century Villa York, which creates a happy union between the suburban noble villa and the farm as a rare example of "Roman vineyard".

Villa Doria Pamphilj is a park in the city of Rome, which, like many other city parks, dates back to the country estate of a noble Roman family. Pamphilj, with its 1.8km square of greenery, is the largest park in Rome and is one of the best preserved "villas" in the city. The villa is divided into three parts: the palace and the gardens (urban pars), the pine forest (pars fructuaria), and the farm estate (rustic pars).
Villa Pamphili today is crossed by jogging and scuba diving trails and outdoor sports facilities. The Palazzina Corsini, a few steps from the entrance to Porta di San Pancrazio, houses a library and an exhibition space, especially during the beautiful season. Villa Vecchia houses the Villa Doria Pamphili Municipal Museum. The west side of the park (which in the 60s was separated in two from the Olimpic building) has the appearance of an ancient Roman countryside, crossed by cherry blossoms that bloom in spring all over.
Villa Pamphili has thus become, for all the Romans, an oasis of peace in the heart of Rome.
It is open every day from 7am until sunset.

If you hear about the "eighth hill" of Rome, do not be surprised: the Gianicolo is one of the tallest, even though it is not part of the seven holes of the "eternal city". But it is famous for being one of the most picturesque corners of Rome
The Gianicolo is a Roman hill, but it is not part of the seven traditional hills.
The name Gianicolo derives from the fact that it was formerly believed that the hill was the center of worship of god Giano.
No doubt one of the most romantic places in Rome, the Gianicolo hill stands behind Trastevere and extends up to St. Peter's Basilica. Here the scenery is breathtaking: the gaze is lost on rooftops, ancient ruins, monuments and baroque domes to the hills surrounding the city.
For art lovers, we recommend the Tempietto del Bramante, perhaps the best example of Renaissance architecture in Rome, while for naturalists the stage of obligation is surely the Botanical Garden, with over 8,000 species of plants.
Every day, at the top of the hill, a singular cannon shoots at lunchtime at point. When the city is noisy, especially in the summer, the shot is heard up to the Esquiline.
Beyond the Gianicolese walls we find Monteverde, a residential district rich in stately villas and elegant palaces where it is nice to take a walk.
To the north of the district, along with Villa Sciarra, we remember Villa Doria Pamphilj, the largest public park in Rome. Beautiful Breath Casino, located in the center of the park, surrounded by a citrus grove and well-kept Italian gardens.

St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican is a Catholic basilica of the Vatican City, crowned by the monumental St. Peter's Square.
It is the largest of the four papal basilicas of Rome, often described as the largest church in the world and center of Catholicism.
St. Peter's dome is the basilica cover. It is one of the largest masonry shells ever built and is also one of the most famous symbols of the city of Rome.
San Pietro is also an extraordinary museum, and it is impossible to enumerate the infinity and value of the masterpieces kept in mind: just think of the Bernini bronze canopy or Michelangelo's sweetest Pietà. And then the outside: where, all around the church, the grandiose Bernini's marble colonnade unfolds, which encloses the square in front of a spectacular and metaphorical hug. Views from the center of the square, born to accommodate the sometimes crowded crowds of the faithful, the double columns of the porch align themselves to perfection, in an astonishingly prospective play.
Access to the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican Gardens and the Basilica of Saint Peter will only be permitted for the well-dressed people (banned sleeveless shirts, shorts, miniskirts, hats).

The magnificent and vast Vatican Museums are located within the State of the Vatican City and represent one of the largest and most interesting museum complexes in the world since they exhibit the huge collection of artwork accumulated in the centuries by the popes. And for this reason the queues at the entrance are really long, especially in high season periods such as Christmas, Easter and Spring. So, getting a good deal of patience, you will definitely be paid back inside!
It is preferable, however, to book the ticket online or directly to the guided tour, with this operation you will save time and avoid the long queues at the entrance.
The Vatican Museums complex contains various museums and of course the unmatched Sistine Chapel.
Access to the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican Gardens and the Basilica of Saint Peter will only be permitted for the well-dressed people (banned sleeveless shirts, shorts, miniskirts, hats).
On the last Sunday of each month the museums are open and free of charge.
