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 don't think it's a must do, but if you have some spare time take a look - it's a nice surprise. the view in the whole area is pretty nice as well.

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

It is very difficult to find, not all locals know about it either, but it is worth the walk up the hill. We took it from piazza Albania, somewhere between the FAO building and the Pyramid. There is a narrow street on the left that brings you to the Garden of Oranges (Giardino degli Aranci), which offers beautiful views of... More

I was trying to find this place and show my friends, but obviously the address on Tripadvisor was completely wrong. The right address is along the Via S. Sabrina, cross the piazza and go on toward south, then please stop in front of Number 3 the huge green door, see through the small keyhole on the door and dont disturb... More

My son’s high school history professor [a Harvard graduate who had lived in Rome] recommended we visit this sight and look through the keyhole. It was hard to find; a bit far from the nearest metro stop, and we decided to use a taxi even though we’re fairly mobile. The door with the keyhole is on an exterior door of... More

I've written a review on this fabulous little gem before, but after reading recent reviews on getting lost or trouble finding it, I have to say that we were on a Segway Tour, and our guide took us right there. We past those large tour busses parked way far away and zipped right up to the Keyhole! No matter how... More
