Would you like to visit one of the best and quietest places overflowing with historical interest and a very suggestive atmosphere? You could go to visit the Aventino Keyhole!
In the Area of Circus Maximus in the Piazza of the Knights of Malta there is the Villa of the Knights of Malta.
If you have a look through the Key-Hole, you will have a beautiful and emotional outlook of the Doom of Saint Peter which appears along the Avenue of Gardens of the Order (viale dei Giardini dell’ Ordine), bordered by trees.
The view is exciting both day and night, and according to the Roman Legend, the Architectural motifs in the building evoke ships and the sea. The Knights of Malta palaces were most of the times built up-hill to overlook after the Pope Palace and to protect the Pope.
The Gardens can be visited by appointment only.
