This is not easy to find but amazing when you get there. You get out at Circus Maximus and head towards the left and up the hill. We passed a soup kitchen passed the Rose Garden ( old Jewish cemetery) which is only open 2 months a year and then up to Santa Sabina' s church. Turn to the right... More

I have taken a lot of visitors to see the view of Rome from the orange garden and the Vatican through the key hole near the Knights of Malta and each time they are amazed. Cameras go clicking away and it is often the highlight of their visit to the eternal city. There was a wedding in one of the... More

Neat place, cool view. Neat to know that what you're looking through included 3 countries (Malta, Italy, and the Vatican).

On the Avantine Hill you can escape the bustling, noisy city centre and visit beautiful churches, such as the Santa Sabina and the San Anselmo. In the Parco Savello, you can rest between the orange trees and admire the breathtaking view on the Saint Peter.

The keyhole was pretty cool and it was nice that it was in a nice quiet corner of Rome. The view through the keyhole was beautiful.

The Aventine Hill is one of the most impressive part of Rome with beautiful and old churches, with peaceful and wonderful streets where you can walk and loose the sense of time. The hill is full with amazing villas and gardens. Surprisingly enough but you can find silence there even there are a lot of people too. Everybody respects the... More

The Aventine hill at night offers beautiful views. The most amazing one is the Aventine keyhole. No words to describe the view through it at night.

We came here at night. Still had an impressive view of Rome from on top of Aventine Hill. There we're any crowds during our nighttime tour, so we just walked right up to the keyhole and easily saw St Peter's Basilica at night, brightly illuminated through the Knights of Malta keyhole. I'm sure the orange groves are more impressive in... More

Staying in Aventine

Neighborhood Profile
Aventine
Contrary to the chaos of the city, the Aventine is Rome’s oasis. A neighborhood made up of a patchwork of ancient churches, hidden gardens, private homes and embassies, peace and quiet is top priority and the vibe definitely friends and family. Take a walk around the Aventine and you’ll find a treasure hunt of surprises like the clever little keyhole at the Knights of Malta entrance (the only place you’ll find a line) along with Parco Savello (Giardino degli Aranci) next to the ancient Santa Sabina church. Keep your eyes on the 1960s architecture, several modern buildings are built atop Rome’s original 4th century BC wall.
