One of the most famous terraces overlooking Rome in the city, with its view on Piazza del Popolo (ID 115) and via del Corso, the ancient Campo Marzio area. Already prestigious in ancient Roman times, it owes its name to Mons Pincius, as the hill was once called. Here many aristocrats and prominent personalities, in the Republican and Imperial eras, established their homes and above all the ''horti'', or personal gardens of great beauty. Its current arrangement is due to Valadier, whose project was approved in 1816 and work started after the French occupation. Prestigious buildings and structures embellish the already extraordinary terraced position in which the Pincio rises: the Casina Valadier, the Water Clock, the Pinciano Obelisk, the Busts of the Pincio. And then fountains and columns, immersed in an inimitable context.
