A pleasant surprise awaits you in Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta at the top of the Aventino hill, an ace up your sleeve in the event you should wish to impress your fellow-travellers.

Just after the Orange Grove (Giardini degli Aranci), the key hole in the gate of the Priorate of the Knights of Malta offers a magnificent furtive peep straight onto St. Peter’s itself.

Through this famous keyhole a stunning view may be enjoyed of the Basilica with two rows of the garden’s trees in the foreground providing a natural frame. (thanks to Provincia di Roma)
