The Pincio is a hill in Rome (but not one of the seven hills), which dominates the Prati district, and from where you can admire beautiful views of Rome.

In ancient times many noble Roman families had houses and gardens on the Pincio, and right from the surname of one of these, the Pinci, hence the name of the hill. The remains of the villas and buildings are still standing (the so-called Muro Torto). At the foot of the hill there was the tomb of Domizi, in which were buried the ashes of Nero.

As time goes on the Pincio they began to build a lot of houses. Occasional excavations at several points have found the remains of large brick buildings with several floors.

In June 1816 the project of Piazza del Popolo, by Giuseppe Valadier,  was approved, and he built in eight years the current square and the vast garden of the hill of the Pincio, as well as the two curves that unite them. Valadier also placed on the Pincio his private residence, the Casina Valadier. Unfortunately he died before you can stay, and became a popular cafeteria and a public point of contemplation of the city

Along the paths of the Pincio were placed in 1951 by Pius IX, numerous busts.
