Presentation of the Neighborhood

All seasoned visitors to Rome know and love the Janiculum as Rome's eighth hill. From the early middle ages to today the area has been famous as the legendary location of Saint Peter's crucifixion, on a site today marked by Bramante's peerless Tempietto.

Situated not far from the basilica of Saint Peter's, and ovelooking Rome's trendy Trastevere district which is within easy walking distance, the Janiculum has remained throughout the ages an oasis of tranquility amidst the unrelenting confusion of Rome's historic core. It is in this oasis, in what is today a neighborhood populated by convents and institutions of higher leaning, such as the American University of Rome and the American Academy of Fine Arts, that the Domus Janicularis is located.

The Domus is located close to many shops, and is within easy walking distance of no fewer than three open air vegetable markets. Some of the city's finest restaurants are located in this neighborhood, like Il Focolare, Il Cortile and Scarpone. For night life, Trastevere is just down the hill, at the end of the scenic Via Garibaldi. The area is perfectly connected to the city center, either by the 75 bus which leads directly up to Rome's central station, Stazione Termini, or the Number 8 tram which carries passengers within a few minutes to the city's busiest square, Largo di Torre Argentina. It is also within walking distance of one of Rome's major railway stations, the Stazione di Trastevere, which connects the traveler to the city's underground system, or to Rome's international airport, Leonardo Da Vinci, on direct trains which operate every twenty minutes.

The Janiculum ensures a quiet stay within easy walking distance of Rome's incomparably intense urban hubbub.
