If you’re looking for an alternative view of Rome’s most famous dome, here’s where you’ll find it – through the keyhole of a large door in Piazza Knights of Malta on Aventine Hill. Look through this keyhole and you’ll get a direct view of the famous dome.
2. Pyramid of Cestius, Via Raffaele Persichetti
Hard to believe but not just Egypt has Pyramids, in fact you can also find one in Rome! Dating all the way back to circa 18BC, the Pyramid of Cestius was built as a tomb for Gaius Cestius, a member of one of the four religious corporations in Rome. It is conveniently at a metro station called "Piramide" and beside the Protestant Cemetery where celebrated English poet John Keats is buried.
3. Basilica de San Pietro in Vincoli, Piazza San Pietro in Vincoli
4. The view from San Gianicolo Hill
Rome is famously built on seven hills, but ironically it’s not one of these hills that afford visitors the best view. Instead, you need to go to Piazzale Giuseppe Garibaldi on Gianicolo Hill on the west side of the River Tiber.
5. Street art of Trastevere
6. Basilica Santa Pudenziana Rome, Via Urbana
As you do your homework on Rome’s attractions, you’ll soon discover that they each have unique attributes and attractions that they go to see.

10. The neighbourhood of Testaccio and its nightclubs
The second neighbourhood that has to be on your list is Testaccio. Similar to Trastevere, it’s a good place to go at night, only here things are a lot livelier. Make your way to Via di Monte Testaccio and you’ll find nightclub after nightclub.
