Nice views of Rome. It's like you would have a Rome on your palm. Interesting experience of seeing Vatican through keyhole which is kind of surrounded by trees. Taking a picture of it is a bit painful.

The hill wasn't far from where I was staying. Lovely views over Rome and it is quiet compared to the rest of the city. Rose gardens were lovely and you have to look through the keyhole at the Priory of the Knights of Malta!

From there you have a great view over rome. You can wander through the orange garden, listen to the musicians there or look through the famous keyhole to see St. Peters Cathedral. Just enjoy the view and get away from the crowded streets of rome.

This is one of the so-called "seven hills of Rome." I used to go to this place from one of the roads departing from Via del Circo Massimo after I have visited this ancient imperial stadium. As to the places of interest you may visit...More

To view St Peter's Bascilica thru the keyhole of the Piazza dei Malta is a must. There was only a small queue, but you will need a good camera to take a photo.

Aventine hill is place with less running visitors than other popular tourist spots. It is a place for boutique visitors and not huge groups. You can walk up to visit rose garden, several churches, specially Santa Sabina. There is a garden with a terrace behind...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
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

Mosse and Kim are correct--you can't go through the door. However, if you turn right from the keyhole and walk down the street a bit (perhaps 1/4 mile), you will come to a small public park which has a fine overlook of Rome.
