Located on the Aventine Hill and on the way to the unique Aventine Keyhole is this basilica. Set in lovely gardens it was quite peaceful. There is an amazing terrace viewpoint which offers lovely views especially towards the Vatican and the Trastevere district.

We saw over 45 churches during our stay in Rome and Florence. This was on the list because of its age and stark design. Unfortunately it was Sunday morning and mass was being held, so out of respect I did not take photos. However, outside...More

This (now) Dominican church on the Aventine is amazing with the first depiction of the Crucifixion of Christ. It is engraved as a small, not central scene on the church's gates. Adjacent is the beautifull Parco Savello with its amazing view of Rome. Inside, not...More

This austere, beautiful and very old church on the Aventine Hill is a 10 minute walk up from the Circo Massimo. There are beautiful inlaid marble floors, and a small and charming mosaic effigy of a sleeping monk. The wide nave has 24 fluted corinthian...More

Very historical church on the Aventino Hill. It is located in a quiet area, far away from the City Centre. That allows you to concentrate and stay calm far away from tourists. Check on the characteristic signage on the marble floor. Very old and original...More

Aventine
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
