    Castel Sant'Angelo and The Tiber River at Night

    With moonlit, narrow alleyways and beauty around every corner, Rome is unrivalled when it comes to nocturnal walks. One of the best night time walks is along the Tiber River. You can stroll hand in hand along the edge of the river itself or the streets above. Start from the famous "Mouth of Truth" (Bocca della Verità) and follow the riverside until you reach the Ponte Sant'Angelo bridge. Look across the river and you will be able to gaze up at the magnificent, illuminated structure that is Castel Sant'Angelo (built by Hadrian and since used as a fortress and papal residence).

    The Aventine Keyhole and Orange Gardens

    A short walk from Circus Maximus, you will find Aventino: one of Rome's "seven hills". Most importantly, it is this one that holds a hidden surprise for those who know where to look. At the top of the hill, peep through the unassuming brass keyhole in the doors of the Priorato dei Cavalieri di Malta (Priory of the Knights of Malta). You will see a picture-perfect view of St. Peter's Basilica, framed by a row of vined arches. Right next door is "Il Giardino degli Aranci" or The Orange Gardens, the perfect place to go on a romantic afternoon stroll. Take in the fragrance of the orange trees as well as the magnificent view across the Tiber River.
