Cheap hotels near Janiculum Hill in Rome, Italy
Though one of the city’s tallest hills, Janiculum Hill ("Gianicolo" in Italian) is not counted as one of Rome’s seven hills. It’s located further west than most central attractions, and outside the reaches of the ancient city’s boundaries.
In Roman times, the hill was used by a cult worshipping the god Janus. Today it’s a popular spot for both tourists and locals looking to take in the city’s architectural landscape at a distance.
While touring the grounds, you can also see the church (San Pietro in Montorio) where St. Peter was crucified, as well as check out the American University of Rome.
