The Aventine, one of the seven hills of Rome, was once a suburb of the ancient Roman city. It then became an important centre of Christian worship. Today it is still a place for a pleasant walk away from the noise of the modern city below.

Choose a nice sunny day (although even a rainy one will do) to set aside an hour for a walk on the Aventine Hill, once a suburb of ancient Rome during the time of the monarchy and the early republic and now the location for a number of important churches.

Walk up Via Circo Massimo to Piazzale Ugo La Malfa and then turn into Via di Valle Murcia. Have a peek at Rome
