  • Very interesting area and nice view of the hole. There was a queue and we been waiting for about 1 h and It worth. I think the location is a bit far from city centre. We been there by car .  more »
  • I went to this place because I was already near a park I'd like to visit. I confess I was kind of upset to get in line to see a hole in the lock. The line took about eight minutes and when my turn came... was WORTH IT! It's amazing, I don't know, it looks magical! A tip: DON'T TAKE PICTURES! What's the point? it's going to get horrible even, like the moment, don't keep trying to take a picture of a keyhole! Put it in memory!

  • A short stop, shortly after the circus Maximus, from a door looking through the lock, magnificent view on the dome of St. Peter!!

  • There is nothing else there apart from a door with a keyhole, a kiosk and an empty square. Don't use your phone camera unless it can do HDR. Also get there early if you need to compose photos. There are a couple of nice gardens nearby with good views. Also it is on top of a steep hill with no buses..
  • Probably our favorite spot in Rome. Truely amazing. So out of the way and unique. But it looks exactly like the picture. Pleasant walk to get there and fun to see. There can be a line but it moves relatively fast. I have heard it gets super crowded in the summer. We came off season and had no problems.
  • Such an amazing hidden gem in Rome. It is definitely worth the trip to look through the keyhole
  • Terribly gimmicky? Maybe, but its difficult not to be charmed both by the novelty, and by the frankly beautiful view. The nearby gardens are also more than worth a visit.
  • Worth the wait. Must see. This photo was taken through keyhole in the door.
