There was a lovely view of the Vatican through the famous keyhole and is remarkably quiet compared to the numerous other attractions across Rome. Because it was so quiet we made the most of it and ate ice cream whilst enjoying the views from the gardens next to the church. The downside is that this appears to be where a... More

From the terrace of the park, you get a lovely view back to the Victor Emmanuel monument and the centre of Rome with the River Tiber flowing past. The Church of Santa Sabina nearby is one of the most peaceful and beautiful in Rome with its ancient doors and lofty interior. At the end of the street you can peep... More

The avenging is one if e loveliest and peaceful areas in Rome. It feels like a different works up here but one that is close enough to walk (or take a taxi if mobility is an issue) . Beautiful quiet mansions and gardens including a lively rose garden with incredible views over the hustle and bustle of times city centre.... More

Very nice, combined with the Rose Garden. Be sure to have a drink from the tap, one of the many water taps found throughout Roma. Put your finger under the tap, and a small stream comes out the top to drink. Fill your water bottle, "courtesy of the Emperor"...

The Aventine Hill is one of the legendary "Seven Hills of Rome." Today it is a green and lovely area, with some churches well worth visiting (among them, Santa Sabina, Santa Prisca, and Santi Bonifacio e Alessio). There are two lovely gardens that both offer extraordinary views of Rome, as well as the "keyhole" offering a stunning view of St.... More

The Aventine Hill is the southernmost of the seven hills of Rome, and belongs to the twelfth war (rione) of Rome, called Ripa. It offers somewhat different view on Rome, especially from the beautiful Parco Savello.

Staying in Aventine

Neighborhood Profile
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.
