"No skyscrapers in Rome!" Top 5 Page for this destination Rome Favorite Tip by breughel
Rome General: 938 reviews and 1,081 photos
Favorite thing: The first time I climbed to the Pincio terrace I found it wonderful that there was not a single skyscraper, not a single tower, not a single high building at the horizon.
No architectural injury was made to this city.
Even if the Romans disliked their Vittoriano monument, finally it is not far from being now a major tourist attraction.
OK, I have no problem with the skyscrapers of NYC or Dubai but I prefer a horizon made of cupolas, or palaces of the baroque period of architecture.
Look here at some photos made from the Capitoline or the Castel Sant' Angelo. Isn't that sublime? Now this horizon virgin of high buildings is not limited to the historical centre of Rome, outside the Mura Aureliane apartment buildings were also kept low as I could observe on my recent stay at the Monte Mario area.
