  • Beautiful and impressive basilica (place of court in recent years of the Empire) remains with large pieces of ruins that give you an idea of what was supposed to be in Roman times. It is located outside of the holes, very close to the Colosseum; worth a visit to get to know its history and it's nice to go there when there are cultural initiatives for the charm of the place.

  • Maybe it's because I remember the movie marathons, but I'll often visit it because of it's magnificent scenery and rich in history

  • Remains imposing as few though, unfortunately, is roughly covered by the endless work of the metro C. Started by Maxentius and finished by Constantine, whose imposing statue was housed inside the basilica.

  • Very impressive, far bigger than i had imagine!
  • Nice ancient church. The tallest building in the Roman Forum, must have been spectacular in its day!
  • Simply amazing - the size this must have been when intact
  • One of the few well-preserved parts of a basilica!
  • A truly massive ruin. It's especially impressive when you consider that only a portion it remains standing; the rest has been lost to time. For safety reasons you can't walk beneath the high arched ceiling, but when standing just a few meters away you'll certainly be able to appreciate the structure's grandeur.
