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

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
