Was wondering why ppl queue in front of a closed door to look through a key hole. When it was my turn, i was so amazed hy the creative guy who made the whole setup especially for ppl to see thru this key hole. Really worth a peek even a reasonable queue to wait.

The view through the keyhole is incredible. Take the time to visit, easy to find and a quick stop is all you need - but well worth it.

I first saw this unexpected view when in Rome as a teenager 40 years ago. Have been waiting ever since to return. It did not disappoint and my return was made compete! We went early (9:30) and had the square and keyhole to ourselves. My husband did not believe that there is ever a queue...

Our tour guide took us up here to see this lovely view through the peep hole. We didn't know what to expect so it was a nice surprise. If you are around the area pay it a visit.

I had read about this in my travel book but didn't think we would actually get a chance to see it. As it turned out when we were on a tour our driver " surprised " us with this place. It was really cool and I am so happy I had a chance to experience it. It's a quick look... More

I'm not sure it is a must-see if your time is limited, since it is a bit out of the way. We spent 7 days in Rome so time wasn't an issue for us, and we could afford just strolling around / checking these sites. It puzzles me to see so many people saying not many people know about this... More

I hadn't told my husband or teenage daughter what we were going to see. Queued for about 15 minutes. Husband was smiling but daughter said "is that it". I thought it was worth the wait though but try & keep the surprise

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighborhood Profile
Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and Via Veneto neighborhood earned its reputation as a posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and models while bored housewives hung out in streetside cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the cocktails, but the neighborhood is now home to five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 8pm.
