Aventine Hill (Aventino) Tours

Aventine Hill (Aventino)
One of Rome’s seven legendary hills, Aventine Hill (Aventino) lies farthest to the south along the Tiber River and is home to the fifth-century Basilica of Santa Sabina, Rose Garden, Orange Garden, and, perhaps most famously, Knights of Malta “keyhole” view of St. Peter’s Basilica in Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta.

The Basics

Many tours of ancient and imperial Rome include Aventine Hill as it figures prominently in the Eternal City's founding myth (it's the hill Remus preferred). In ancient times it was the site of the Temple of Diana. Today the churches and gardens of the quiet residential district offer a peaceful respite. Snap photo-worthy views of the rooftops of Rome and St. Peter’s Basilica, including through a keyhole on the gate to the Knights of Malta.

Join a tour of the hills of ancient Rome by Vespa scooter or e-bike to explore Aventine, or take a tour highlighting the most beautiful views in Rome by day or night. Aventine Hill is also near Circus Maximus and the Baths of Caracalla, and you can easily combine a visit to all three in one trip.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • With its abundance of gardens and public parks, Aventine Hill is a welcome break for families with kids.
  • Most of the sights on Aventine are outdoors, so bring a hat and sunscreen in summer, and dress warmly in winter.
  • Modest dress is required to enter Basilica of Santa Sabina.
  • Some of the best views of Rome can be found from the heights of Aventine Hill, and a visit is recommended for photography buffs.

How to Get There
It's about a 10-minute walk from Aventine Hill to Porta San Paolo, where you find the transportation hub connecting the Roma Porta San Paolo station, metro line B Piramide stop, and Rome Ostiense station.

When to Get There

One of the biggest draws of Aventine Hill is its sweeping views, so try to visit on a day with clear skies for the best photos.

The Founding of Rome and the Battle of the Hills

It is said that brothers Romulus and Remus each chose a hilltop on which to found the new city of Rome. While Remus chose the Aventine Hill, it was Romulus on nearby Palatine Hill who saw more divine signs and who went on to found the Eternal City.
