“A peaceful retreat”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

A nice stroll up on the Aventine hill to get away from the hustle of the city. The keyhole view was a bit overrated, and was not worth waiting in a long queue in bright sunshine.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Aventine Hill is really serene and picturesque so if you want to take some breathtaking photos do come here.
Also the famous "keyhole" is on Aventine Hill - well worth it to come take a look and a lot of fun trying to get that perfect keyhole picture :)

“Great views of the city and the river”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

It's just a beautiful place to walk around and relax after a day of touring. Probably the best time to see it is any time around sunset. Plan to spend at least a couple of hours to walk through the garden of orange trees, as well as soak in the breathtaking views of the city. Spend some time in the ancient church of Santa Sabina to see the sunlight (or moonlight) illuminate the nave of the church from the selenite windows. These windows have a very unique design (like no other in Rome). Also, the church door made out of Cypress is one of the oldest wooden doors from Ancient Rome. Each door panel tells a story from the crucifixion. It's amazing that it has survived all these years.

No visit to Aventine Hill is complete without a stop at the Piazza Cavalieri di Malta. That peak through the keyhole was amazing! There may be a line, but there wasn't one when we visited. I took a picture from the keyhole, but it came out blurry. Thank goodness for TA! I was so impressed with the pictures that I've seen of the view from the keyhole. It makes me want to go back and try it again.

“Wow”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Worth a detour free to see a fab Bernini statue. Small church not very busy but worth a trip to see the statue. Not much else, but as we found every little church has something new and amazing to see in it. So don't walk past them , pop In and see what you find

“Time travel - with a little imagination”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

A nice relaxing walk in the mediterranean sun. Interesting to see how civilizations lived and makes you appreciate what we have now. Very interesting but not an all day trip - just a few hours really.
