There is an option when it comes to relaxing and enjoying the shade during the hot and sunny days of spring and summer, or even in chilly autumn and winter days when the sun shines. Away from the crowd and from the chaotic traffic. Away from noises and loudness you may as well choose to come here. Villa Sciarra! That is my favourite not so well-known little green pearl. Legend has it that even Cleopatra, invited by Julius Caesar, came here during her stay in Rome.
Between Gianicolo hill and the Monteverde quarter and within a walking distance from Trastevere lays this amazing little park. It is a peaceful place that even locals do not know exists unless you live in the area.
The park has got so many varieties of trees and plants as well as some little fountains. Definitely a gem to be visited. Come here with your favourite book, or just to relax while you aimlessly stroll around it. Feel the west wind breeze and enjoy the serene atmosphere.
