AVENTINE HILL

The Aventine Hill is one of the Seven Hills on which Rome was founded, it was included inside the town walls from the III century (at Albania square it is still possible to admire the remains of the Servian Wall) nevertheless the place remained uninhabited and outside the city boundaries during the whole Republican age; perhaps for this reason the hill was a place for temples dedicated to foreign Gods.
The Aventine hill consists of two hills: the northern one on which the Sant'Anselmo, Sant'Alessio, Santa Prisca and Santa Sabina churches lie; nearby Santa Sabina church the Savello Park, well known as Giardino degli Aranci (Oranges garden), which affords a wonderful view over Rome; whereas the San Saba and Santa Balbina churches are located over the southern hill, also known as Piccolo Aventino (Small Aventino).
Viale dell'Aventino, which cuts across the northern and the southern hills, joins Testaccio to the Porta Capena square. It is worth to mention the famous view through the lock of the main door of the complex of the Order of Knights of Malta in Knights of Malta square; looking through this lock it is possible to see the dome of the Saint Peter's Basilica.
