Zodiaco panoramic viewpoint

Rome is truly a great city, very vast and incredibly rich in beautiful things to see and historic places to immerse oneself in the past. However, most visitors usually focus on the famous monuments and well-known places, perhaps unaware of the existence of truly suggestive hidden corners. From this point of view, Romans are second to none in creating fantastic and evocative places. In this guide, we will see how to reach the Zodiac and the astronomical observatory of Rome, two of the most beautiful places in the capital of our country. These two places are recommended for people of all ages, both children and adults, and are places that must be visited at least once in a lifetime, especially for those passionate about the cosmos and everything surrounding it. The Zodiac, a very suggestive place that dominates Rome in all its splendor from the top of Monte Mario, at 140 meters high, from which you can admire a vast slice of the capital, ranging from the Roman castles to the historic center. A charming and romantic corner, especially in the evening when darkness falls and the stars frame the illuminated city, and where you can stop to eat in the beautiful panoramic restaurant on-site. This is also an ideal place for all couples who wish to spend a romantic evening under the stars. How to get there: The Zodiac is reachable by car along Via Trionfale or Viale Mazzini until reaching Piazzale Clodio, then continuing along the Panoramic Road – Viale dei Cavalieri di Vittorio Veneto – at the end of which, on the right, there is an ancient arch that leads into Viale del Parco Mellini. Public transportation does not go all the way to the Zodiac, but stops much earlier, and you will need to take a long walk up the hill on foot, so it’s better to inquire about the route to take. The walk can also be an opportunity to admire the surrounding landscape and not miss a single detail of this splendid journey.

Lungotevere Flaminio cycle lane

Here’s a possible itinerary for a bike ride along the banks of the Tevere River in Rome starting from the Olympic Stadium: Begin your ride at the Olympic Stadium, located southeast of the city and reachable in a few minutes either via Viale Angelico or Via della Circonvallazione Clodia. Cycle along the bike path that follows the river northward. Continue along the right bank of the Tevere and admire the views of the old city, including Castel Sant’Angelo and St. Peter’s Basilica. Ride to Ponte Sant’Angelo and cross it to reach the left bank of the river. Here you can see Tiber Island, a river island hosting a hospital and a Roman temple. Continue cycling along the left bank until Ponte Cestio, a brick bridge built in the 1st century AD. From here, pedal north along the left bank of the Tevere, passing by Tiber Island and the Church of San Bartolomeo all’Isola. Continue to the mouth of the Tevere, where you can see the ancient port of Ripa Grande and the National Prehistoric Ethnographic Museum “Luigi Pigorini”. Continue along the left bank of the Tevere to the Ostiense area, where you can see the Pyramid of Cestius, one of the few pyramids in Italy. Continue north along the left bank of the Tevere to the Testaccio area, a historic neighborhood famous for its nightlife. Conclude your ride by returning to the starting point along the right bank of the Tevere. Keep in mind that this is just one example of a possible itinerary; there may be variations or modifications based on personal preferences and traffic conditions. Additionally, it’s always best to consult city maps and check the availability of bike paths.
