We visited the place in the evening, were very tired, but it totally worth it. It's feels like you are in the movie to see som secret place. Not many people know about it, so it's great if you will discover the place.

Wow!! Don't worry you can walk up the hill, not that steep. Address: Piazza dei Cavalleri di Malta 3. It has been discovered so do expect a queue. The view into the key hole is unlike anything I have ever seen. If there is a...More

Trekked 30 mins to get here and queued in line for 5 mins to look through the keyhole. It's a nice view of St Peters but would need to see the door open to believe the miracle. But walking back down towards Circus Max there...More

The place is famous for the hole in the door which allows to see Saint Peter Cathedral. But there is more: it is the representative office of the ancient sovereign military order of Malta and you can "breathe" there the history of the order. There...More

Amazing view after a long and hot walk up from the Coliseum. Went to the view point 2 minutes walk away beforehand so felt it had been worth the walk.

It is quite hard to find but worth going out the way for! for an easy route - i would recommend going up the path called Clivo Di Rocca Savella! It was incredible to see how the trees frame St.Peters Basilica - hard to get...More

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

No visits to the garden are allowed. I would also have liked to visit. But go down the road Santa Sabina towards Circus Maximus. Just next to the Basicila di Santa Sabina is the Garden of Oranges. There is a panoramic view... More

Also unclear as to question.... It's probably MUCH too long a walk from Piazza Navona. It wouldn't be so far from Circo Massimo / Circus Maximus, though. Maybe you should consult a map. ;) Did you know that Google Maps can... More
