Knights, churches and Segways - the Aventine

Photos of the Aventine Hill, mostly taken during February 2010.

An interesting area, where one can spy through the famous keyhole of the Knights of Malta,
set in the great door of their priory, visit a trio of churches - Santa Sabina, Sant'Alessio
and Sant'Anselmo - and get some great views over the city from a lovely shaded terrace,
amongst a grove of orange trees.
