Peeking Through the Secret Key Hole in Rome

On the gorgeous Aventine Hill in Rome is the small and charming Piazza of the Knights of Malta (Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta) designed in 1765 by the famous Italian architect Giovanni Battista Piranesi.

A tall ornate wall that looks like the facade of a building has a wooden door that blocks the entrance to the garden of the well protected Priory of the Knights of Malta.

The Key Hole on this precise door reveals an enchanting vision of the misty dome of St Peter’s Basilica, stunningly framed by the manicured trees inside the garden just beyond the door.

Here is something incredible to ponder as you peek though the key hole: you are looking through three countries:

You are standing on the independent territory of the Sovereign Order of the Knights of Malta, gazing across Rome (Italy), and looking at St Peter’s Dome which is inside the Vatican. Where else can you do that?
.
Travel Tip: Be sure to bring a camera and take photos of St Peter’s Dome through the key hole.
.
Tour Tip: If you reserved a Rome in A Day Tour or Shore Excursion with RomeCabs or Stefano Rome Tours, you may combine a visit to Aventine Hill which in addition to the Key Hole that includes the famous Orange Garden (Giardino degli Aranci) and the fragrant and colorful Rose Garden in May.
