On the top of the Aventine Hill is the Priory of the Knights of Malta, which has, for some reason, extraterratorial status. Its garden has been designed in such a way that when you peer through the keyhole of the gate you can see three separate sovereignties: The grounds of the Priory, Italy (the city of Rome), and the Vatican. It took two different settings to capture all three on my little camera, but here is the view...

The Aventine also has lovely parks filled with oranges and spectacular views of the city.
