The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

I get it why this place is so popular, the 3 countries, the cool view from the keyhole, a bit different... However, there is always a huge line, and for this view, I just feel like it isn't worth it. Not sure if it should be a must see in Rome, there are plenty of other more beautiful places.

If you are a sucker for killer views then this is your place to go.

Through the keyhole you immediately see Malta (the Embassy), then you see Italy, followed by Vatican City (yes it is it's own country!).

The views from the keyhole are so pretty, definately a good spot to check out.

If you walk there, there are also some great views on the way up and down overlooking Rome. Photos of keyhole and some from the walk included in my review.

Free to do

Can see the Basilica through the keyhole

Something a bit different to do and next door there is a garden area with great views of Rome.

It's worth the walk to the Aventine for an interesting view of St Peter's basilica

Even better if you don't tell the person you are with

A good zoom allows for the best pics

Visited around 8 pm when there were only 5 people besides us. Stunning, undescribable view. Worth visiting but not queuing so prefer evening times when there's still enough light to admire the view.

We visited early in morning (around 10.45am) on one of our first stops on our cycle tour. We'd cycled up the Aventine Hill and the guide stopped next to 2 huge green doors. There were no queues at all and we spent as long as we wanted to view through the keyhole to see the distant view of St.Peter's Basilica through a long line of cypress trees. Beautiful. We then walked around the large garden to the right which had stunning views across the city. It was a lovely large space with trees and seats for a rest in the shade. Probably even better because we were there in a quiet period too.

So the concept of viewing "3 countries" in one view is pretty interesting...the reality however is somewhat less so. 3 countries is a loose term when looking through the door of 1 countries embassy at another countries cathedral with another country in the background.

The reality of it is you can spend up to an hour to look through a keyhole for the best part of a minute before other people tell you "You've had long enough, other people are waiting"

A shame but it didn't ruin the trip

We were in the area so decided to take a peek through the keyhole. There was a line, of course, about 30 deep. Not sure why you’d bother really. Don’t go out of your way.

If you’re headed up to Aventine Hill, it’s definitely worth walking down to peep through the keyhole. If you’re looking at the entrance to the park, it’s to the left and down the street a little. You’ll see a big green door (and probably a line of people waiting their turn to look). We went right after sunset, might have been easier to see since everything was lit up.

The Malteese embassy key hole offers a view of three countries in one line of sight. The embassy of Malta, Rome and Vatican City. It was made so the the eye line allows you to look directly at St Peters basilica.
Visit this early in the day as it can command long queues, especially in the summer season. It’s a bit of a walk up hill to get there, we always visit as part of a tour with Bici Baci! Then you can stop off at the old monastery garden which s now a public area with wild oranges growing, it’s got great views of the city!
