Through The Peephole

On the Aventine Hill you will find breathtaking views of the Eternal City. Known for it’s keyhole viewpoint, of the copper-green dome of Saint Peter's Basilica, Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta offers a view of Rome most travelers don't see. Just head to the end of the allée and have a peek through the cyprus trees; you'll know what we're talking about.

The actual villa on this hill is home to the Grand Priory of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, an order of chivalry. The site is reached by via Santa Sabina, which ends in the small, picturesque piazza dei Cavallieri di Malta enclosed on two sides by the cypresses of the garden of the Benedictines.
