The Secret Keyhole

2477660926_634be5cf4aHere in Rome there are many things to see and enjoy. However, most people come to see the main attractions (i.e. the Colosseum, the Vatican, the Pantheon, etc.).

What many people don’t realise is that there are many, many other little hidden gems in the city. One of these is the secret keyhole to the door of the headquarters of the sovereign order of the knights of malta. Located near the Colosseum, the keyhole offers a unique picturesque view of St. Peters Basilica. If you want to go and catch a photo, be prepared to be patient as it can be a difficult shot to capture.


In my opinion it’s definitely worth a look. You can get there by taking the b line from termini to Circo Massimo and then walk along side it till you reach a large statue, immediately after the statue turn left through the gate and then walk generally straight uphill until you reach the door in a small square. Hope you enjoy!

To discover all the secrets of the Eternal City there is no better base than Hotel Des Artistes and Yes Hotel, great accomodation at affordable rates!
