  • I really wanted to see Piranesi's creation. But the entrance is closed. They didn't even come close to the church. Near the "keyhole" supposedly there was a passage - but there is a gate and a type of private property. It is a pity, very ((((However, at least for the sake of a keyhole through which you can admire the Cathedral of Peter, it is worth to climb to Aventine

  • Small building, Santa Maria Aventina, white both abroad and inside, sober and elegant despite the richness of the decorations, resembles outside a Roman temple, numerous symbols that evoke the military history of the order.

  • What to say I attended/attended 2 wedding ceremonies and I can simply say that despite the seasons it was opposite the charm of the property is always magical and evocative. The garden is also beautiful, parking for a fee but not overly expensive.

  • Stunning monument of history, architecture and culture. Inside the church you are going to find splendid tombs of Grand Masters and Grand Priors of the Order of the Hospital of Saint John of Jerusalem better known as the Order of Malta nowadays. This is another must see place at Rome.
  • Ok
  • No public access. You will only get in as part of a guided tour. Search online for available ones. They might be pricey, but it's really well worth it. Bramante's only church in Rome.
  • I tried to visit the Santa Maria del Priorato which is Piranesi's only completed work. I followed some people who I assumed were tourists in through a gate. A security guard started shouting at us "DOVE CREDETE DI ANDARE" . & other stuff of that nature (Sunday 17 September 2017 around noon). He was extremely rude and menacing. I tried to reason with him in my limited Italian but he carried on shouting like a goon and Tony Soprano wannabe. Apparently this is an embassy and the Christian Catholic Church of Santa Maria del Priorato is somehow connected. I think it's the Maltese Embassy even though there is no information on Google Maps. As such if an Embassy official reads this I suggest you discipline your staff and counsel them to be more DIPLOMATIC & respectful because it casts a VERY bad light on your organisation.
  • It's a sweet church, with a lovely park at side. But if you, like me, are trying to get an amazing view from the keyhole, it is not here, not inside this church. Go down the street a little bit, the place named Il Buco della serratura is actually what you're looking for. Normally, it will a line of people waiting there.
