DID YOU KNOW THAT …?
- Rome is the city with the highest number of fountains in the world: it hosts more than 2,000 of them!
- The hills of Rome are more than seven: if in the imperial age they were limited to the ‘traditional’ Aventine, Caelian, Esquiline, Quirinal, Viminal, Capitoline and Palatine, with the passing of the years and the consequent expansion of the city limits, also the Pincian, the Vatican and the Janiculum have been enclosed into city’s perimeter.
- If from Villa Pamphili you walk along Via Niccolò Piccolomini going towards Saint Peter’s Basilica, for a peculiar optical effect, you will notice that the closer you get, the smaller the dome looks, while if you walk backwards the dome seems to grow larger
- The Parioli , one of the most elegant and exclusive districts of the Capital, derives its name from the term “peraioli” (literally ‘pear growers’), a toponym used to indicate the large cultivations of pear trees that once covered the three hills of Monticello, San Valentino and San Filippo.
