These lovely gardens overlook one of the most beautiful squares in Rome, Piazza del Popolo. There were gardens here even in the time of Ancient Rome, and it is said that they were quite fabulous. The present-day gardens were designed in the early 19th Century by the architect Valadier who also created Piazza del Popolo itself. They became a favorite location for walking, and who knows how many love stories blossomed amongst the pine trees. Piazzale Napoleone here offers an unforgettable view of Rome, along with the famous Water Clock that dates back to the 19th Century. A visit to the restaurant Casina Valadier is well worth it, for a coffee or a light lunch.
