We stayed in this neighborhood with friends for a few nights and delighted in walking around. The rose garden is expansive and beautiful. Lovely houses and embassies. Be sure to look through the keyhole. Close to Circo Massimo.

This is a wonderful little area off the beaten path. Take the time and locate the keyhole and Piazza Fiorenzo Fiorentini with the great view point and quiet park full of oranges, a water fountain and benches for foot weary guests.

Yes, this area was a bit difficult to locate due to poor directions but it is very near Circus Maximus and a lovely Rose Garden at the foot of the hill. Just ask your fellow travelors and they will point you the right way.

Once at the door, peer through for a glorious view of the Basillica. We were lucky to be at the door when it opened! Please see the attched pictures of the hedgerow. I wonder if the doorway was designed to have the Bascillica view, or if it was just happenstance? Please have patience with your fellow travelors, the shot requires some effort to achieve the effect. Takes a bit of time to underexpose the shot.

FYI, the Rose Garden at the base of the hill, has the most filthy WC in all of Italy! But in an emergency it is usable...just remember your TP and antibacterial soap!

Look through the keyhole (yes it is a normal sized keyhole you look through) and visit the orange park. If you stay close by don't miss this place. Wonderful view of rome and very nice for a walk.

I love the Aventine Hill. It is usually peaceful and an easy walk from the Circus Maximus (the sight and the Metro stop). Offering a few churches, such as Sant'Alessio, and a lovely park with a stunning (often uncrowded) overlook of the Tiber toward St. Peter's Basilica, this area is a nice place to go in Rome if you're in Rome for more than a few days. In May and June, don't miss the city's rose gardens which sit at the base of the hill.

The Aventine Hill is a lovely and quiet area to get away from the hustle and bustle of Rome. With some beautiful churches (including Santa Sabina, an Early Christian Church) and a couple of gardens, it adds yet another atmosphere to the diverse city. A gem of the Aventine is the keyhole of the Knights of Malta, located in a relatively inconspicuous door but holding a picture-perfect view!
