Aventine Hill

Aventine Hill, the most southerly of Rome's seven hills, a splendid elegant and contemplative part of town, with  many old charming streets and gardens where to enjoy relaxing promenades. The most atmospheric street on Aventine is Via Santa Sabina, where you'll find a number of medieval churches, including the magnificent Basilica di Santa Sabina and a beautiful walled orange garden, the Parco Savello. Like Gianicolo (Janiculum Hill) and Pincio (Pincium Hill), Aventine Hill is the best location in Rome for a breathtaking view of the innumerable domes and bell towers that pierce the skyline of the multi-hued architectural museum. Pictures taken a few days ago. Dedicated to Mme Laurence. Dedicated also to my friend and mentor on photography, Dr Shlomo Lee Abrahmov recently passed away.
