with all there is to see and do, this is a minor location. still, makes for a nice walk and good to do some research beforehand to understand the significance.

What a great view and surprise when you look through the keyhole at Aventine Hill. Luckily it was only a block away from our hotel.

The gardens and park by the San Alsemo Church are a delight and appreciated by Romans for thier quiet and peace. The viewpoints are super, as is the local area of very nice villas and gardens.

the passeggiata from the Roseto Comunale until the St'Anselmo Basilica, one of the greatest and most poetic corners of Roma with Santa Prisca, Sant'Alessio, St'Anselmo and Santa Sabina churches to visit along with Il Giardino degli Aranci just on the way in between them.

There is a very nice and interesting church, San Sabina, and beside it a small orange grove with a beautiful view of Rome. In addition, there is a famous keyhole where one can see St. Peter's Basilica.

is you go up Aventino for about 15 min you will see an entrance to a small park - it's an amazing spot to see the sunset, or to have a romantic picnic

From the Circus Maxima you can easily go up the Aventine and find one of the nicest gardens, with panoramic view over the buildings of Rome. We went in March and the orang trees were still full of fruit.

I got a lot of good pics here to take home so I enjoyed my visit because of that. Otherwise it was just another stroll through Rome.

I love this area. It is the place to unwind and enjoy the quieter side of Italian life. The hotels here are a little pricier, but the tranquility of the area is worth it. You are still able to walk everywhere from here and in the area is the magic keyhole that for me is in the top ten sights... More

It was a real treat to walk up Aventine Hill and find the secret keyhole with the most incredible view of St. Peter's. The walk was was easy and there is a nice park with spectacular views.
