Why locals love it

The puppet show at Gianicolo Belvedere is a tradition for every family in Rome. All Roman children have been brought here by their parents at least once in their lifetime. It’s a funny and cheerful experience for children and children at heart.

Why you should visit it

A stroll on Gianicolo hill is a must when in Rome. The panorama is breathtaking: the view stretches over roofs, ancient ruins, monuments and baroque domes as far as the eye can see. If you’re travelling with children, come here on a Sunday for a traditional puppet show that’s bound to impress everyone, adults included!

Special tip

A special canon fires blanks at noon every day from the top of the hill.
