Up on the Aventine hill, above the Forum, there is a nice walk to do … first visit the church of Sant' Anselmo with its lovely courtyard. Pass the Santa Sabina Church. Soon, you will see a building with a green door. This is the retreat of the Knights of Malta . The door is seldom open but you will surely notice some people peeping through a hole. They are not being too curious or impolite, they are just having one of Rome’s best views of St-Peter’s. I won’t say much about it; you’ll have to discover for yourself, but to me, it’s one of Rome’s little treasures.
