View from the entry door of the Turtles Nest. The main Jewish synagogue dome. It is quadrangular, all made in aluminium, and naturally with no cross. The roofs and the palaces are those of the Jewish quarters, Rome's famous Ghetto. The high trees you can see flank the river Tiber. In the distance you can see the Aventine Hill, with the important compound of the Convent of San Saba, and to the extreme right, topped by a flag, you can see the palace hosting the international headquarters of the Knights of Malta, a powerful independent international moral and charity institution. It is here that you find the famous keyhole from which you can see St. Peter's dome.

 

North-East view, from left to right: Dome of the CHurch San Carlo al Corso (previously shown), pine trees of the Borghese Gardens, turrit of the Montecitorio Palace - the Italian Parliament - the two white turrits and facade of the Villa Medici in the Borghese Gardens, the back of the facade of the Church of Sant'Ignatius del Loyola, and the roofs of the quarter called "Campo Marzio".
