On entering the garden near the church there is a wall fountain, Fontana del Mascherone di Santa Sabina. The fountain is a granite Roman bath with a 16th century marble disc above,... More

After a short walk up a steep hill (if coming from the river), you reach the garden walls which hide a little oasis of calm. Enjoy the views and the peace and quiet - away from the dust and sirens of the city.

It took us less than 10 minutes walk on Via Santa Sabina to get from Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta to Piazza San Pietro d`Illiria where the Parco Savello entrance is. We stepped through the door in the wall enclosing the park, but only when we got on the central alley and saw the San Pietro Basilica dome on the... More

Rome is a dusty, in places slightly grimy city - it goes with the territory, at the end of the summer, the hot dry weather leaves a place grubby. Parco Savello is an oasis in the hustle and bustle of a city which sees 10million visitors a year. Located up on Aventine Hill, nestled within the walls of a monastery,... More

Take the time to walk up through the park (unfortunately for us the rose gardens were closed) then through the orange trees to the views above the river. Fantastic panoramic view of Rome and great spot to take photos. This has to be one of the best free things to do in Rome.

The view is the reason why you should go to this pretty little park. From there you can spot S. Peter, the Pantheon, the river Tevere, the west river side of the Capitol city and the atmosphere is so romantic. I love to come here, enjoying the panorama, shooting some pictures looking at the sunset.

This is such an exquisite find. You go here for the view, the peace and quiet. I am happy this is not a very busy place. It is a small square, lined with orange trees. At the balcony, you are rewarded with a lovely 360 view of Rome, looking as far as the Basilica, to the circus massimus (I remember... More

If you want a gorgeous view (for me surely the best one in Rome) and relax in one of the most beautiful small parks, this is THE place to be.

We walked up to the park around 5.30pm. It was a lovely time to go, so peaceful and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of Rome. The views over the river and over to St Peters basilica were stunning. It was lovely to sit and enjoy the late afternoon sunshine. Afterwards we walked up the hill to view the... More

Staying in Aventine

Neighbourhood Profile
Contrary to the chaos of the city, the Aventine is Rome’s oasis. A neighbourhood 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.
