The Aventine Hill: underground and aboveground, where esotericism meets Christianity
Starting from the statue of Giuseppe Mazzini overlooking the Circus Maximus and the Palatine hill, we will walk up the Aventine hill through the state garden of roses conceived on the 17th-century Jewish graveyard. And still up through the most peaceful but elegant quater of Rome with its beautiful houses of the end of XIX to the years 30s of the XX century. And among them Medieval churches dominating Rome and the Tiber! We will visit the 5th-century basilica of San Sabina its typical architectures and decorations of the earliest Christian churches in Rome, with the still original 6th-century wooden door with the oldest depiction of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and the most famous Orange tree garden in the world with an amazing view of Rome. As a special visit I will reserve the visit of the excavations underneath the church to go back to what the area was in ancient Rome. But soon after: the keyhole found in the door of the Knights of Malta that gives a view to the Saint Peter’s dome of the Vatican, at one of the most esoteric square in Rome, conceived by Piranesi.
On request it is possible to add the 18-century Non-catholic cemetery, where English, American, North European artists, poets (like keats and Shelley), philosophers, writers and scholars are buried. The cemetery includes the view of the 3rd- century Roman Walls and the famous 1st-century Piramid.
