  • We saw this medieval church while touring the Roman Forum The church is on the north side of the Via Sacra (main street of ancient Rome, leading from the top of the Capitoline Hill, through the Forum,...  more »
  • In the middle of the Roman forum (here there is also an entrance) on the ancient vestiges was built in 316 dc by dad Sylvester the first original church at a single aisle. Subsequently it underwent several renovations, even complex, and in particular that of 1216 by dad Onorio II who following a devastating fire gave her the current configuration also creating the bell tower Is of this period the fascinating mosaic made above the altar In the interior, in addition to various interesting works, are preserved the remains of Santa Francesca Romana to which this important basilica was then dedicated

  • Amazing!! Such a magnificent historical building. Salute to preserve this ancient city. Every single corner is amazing. Was perfect weather back then may16 to enjoy every inches.
  • This church is incredible old and precious. It is not part of the forum romanum and by that you to have to pay no entrance fee although it is a direct neighbour. If you are tired of all these tourists at the colosseum just enter paradise here...
  • A hidden Basilica tucked in right beside the Foro Romano. Free to enter. Very peaceful. The ceiling and the incredibly ornate mosaic at the back of the church are worth seeing.
  • A great peace of tranquility in the middle of the forum !!
  • Great church very beautiful, kind of hidden by Colosseum, great artwork
