  • Is the oldest Baptistry in Rome, built by the Emperor Constantine but built in 500 ad. The structure remained intact. Inside you can admire, among other things: to the left is the chapel of St. John the Evangelist, whose doors were originally placed at the top of the scala santa, right, the chapel of San Giovanni Battista, whose doors are called MELODIOUS because, due to the bronze hinges when opened and closed, they emit a sound as of organ.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
