Rome's view from the Janiculum

Rome's view from the Janiculum hill is by far the most impressive. The most striking feature is the forest of domes and monuments filling the skyline, with the background of the hills surrounding Rome (of which the most prominent are the Roman Castles or "Castelli Romani").
You can see: the church of St. Agnese by F. Borromini, the imposing Palazzo Farnese, the dome of San Carlo al Corso, the facade of the Palazzo Medici and behind it the Borghese gardens, the dome of the Church of St. Ivo alla Sapienza by Francesco Borromini, the high dome of Sant'Andrea della Valle (behind it you can see the disk-like dome of the Pantheon), the dome of the Church Holy Trinity of the Pilgrims, the imposing spherical dome of the Church of San Carlo ai Catinari, the imposing  Palazzo Quirinale, the dome of the Church of the Gesu' or Jesus Church (main church of the Jesuit's church), Trajan's Column and the Roman Forum, the Torre Spaccata (Broken tower, a medieval tower which was partly destroyed after an earthquake), the Altar of Fatherland or  King Victor Emmanuel monument commemorating the reunion on Italy in 1870 , the Church of Ara Coeli (Altar of the Skies), Capitol Hill (including the Municipality and Palazzo Conservatori), the basilica of St. Mary Major (background with two domes and a belfry), and the dome of the Synagogue (forefront, quadrangular, and silvery).
