  • On this Hill are several interesting to explore the churches: the Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, with the Romanesque Bell Tower and a beautiful baroque interior and the early Christian Church of Santo Stefano Rotondo, known for its frescoes, depicting a variety of torment first Christians.

  • On the Caelian Hill there are many attractions, they are not the most famous, but very interesting: there are several obelisks, palaces and churches. There is a park of Villa Celimontana.

  • The Celian Hill is one of the areas of Rome's more rich in history, but perhaps its most prominent feature is the absence not only of mass tourism, but also the size of daily frenzy almost generalized in Rome. The Coliseum is close, the Palatine even with all their support of organized groups, tour coaches, trader abusive and whatnot: but as soon as you submit for Via Claudia or the Clivus Scauri, depending on the case, it seems to cross an invisible barrier and enter another world. Unlike the Aventine and San Saba, in other respects similar, is not a residential area, which allows not only to a quiet visit of the numerous monuments from various eras-the ascent of Clivus Scauri, on site Case Romane del Celio, churches San Gregorio al Celio, Santa Maria in Domnica, Santo Stefano Rotondo, Santi Giovanni e Paolo , and more-but also to the possibility to walk and reflect calmly without a precise destination, perhaps with a stop in the pleasant Park of Villa Celimontana. Recommended not only for those who want to discover Rome without being confined to the usual tourist destinations, but also for those who believe, wrongly, that the capital is inseparable from noise, chaos and traffic.
