This park, high up on Janiculum hill, is a good place to spend time with children – pony rides, bumper cars, open air puppet theatre and other games, while enjoying a great view of the city below, perhaps the best one. The square on top of the hill and the avenue (Passeggiata del Gianicolo) were realized in 1885-1887 on the territory of the ex Parco Corsini. There can be find numerous busts of the volunteers who took part in the defense of Rome; in the middle of the square in 1895 an equestrian monument was erected to G.Garibaldi. At midday, from the balcony of the Piazzale takes place the everyday shot of the cannon giving a sign of the exact time. This tradition began in December 1847, when the cannon of Castel Sant’Angelo was giving the official time of Rome and the sign to all the bell-towers to start ringing.
