On Aventino hill, one of the most famous areas of rome, with the most famous churches, a small big surprise awaits for you. No monument, no historical ruin. But an unusual sight.
Just in front of the Church of St. Anselm, just after the Orange Garden, there is a door, of the Priory of Knights of Malta. And as all doors it has the hole in the lock. Looking inside, you will enjoy a stunning view of the dome of St. Peter, framed by the hedges of the gardens of the Priory.
There are so many people who come from various parts of the city every day to take pictures or enjoy even if for a few seconds of this particular panorama, but in a few minutes you will also experience this unusual sight.
