  • The last layer is a direct consequence of the demolition of the monastery of Saint Basil, of its church and the monastery of the Annunciation took place in the third decade of the last century for the opening of the Via dei Fori Imperiali. And then, in a kind of late but compensates in 1946 the House was granted to the sovereign military order of Malta, derivation of former owners. Built on Roman structures, in 1466 Cardinal Marco Barbo gave her current appearance and trim. Towards the Forum of Augustus has cuts a fine figure of himself a balcony flanked by two Windows with a Greek cross and – towards the Forum of Trajan-a just as nice, if not more, eight arched loggia. The entrance from Piazza del Grillo was restored by the order of Malta during the restoration that followed the abovementioned concession. Inside the House is organized around two halls: the Hall of honor and the Sala della Loggia, also called Hall of the balcony. The first has a beautiful wooden ceiling and frescoes with medallions and the second contains a reconstruction of a part of the frieze of the arcades of the Forum of Augustus as well as remains of a fresco by Sebastiano del Piombo and other frescoes "torn" from St Basil's Church before its demolition. From a door in the back of the class greater than you get the beautiful Loggia erected by Cardinal Barbo on a wall of the Augustan age: in addition to the unique panorama, preserves frescos on the walls with landscapes and medallions depicting emperors, unfortunately damaged by time and weathering, but always highly relevant (we speak of artists belonging to the circle of Andrea Mantegna). Other groups that meet in the visit: Byzantine Hall, the Antiquarium of the Forum of Augustus and the chapel of St John the Baptist, the patron saint of the Knights (going by a porticoed Atrium augusteo travertine pillars and arches).

  • I understand that this building is not generally open to the public without reservations, and so I'm doubly glad I was able to visit it on my recent visit to Rome. The rooms are beautiful and the view...  more »
  • Having searched for the possibility of visiting the site found with the Association "la bellezza dell'arte" by Susanna that guided us in opening reserved only two mornings (Tuesday and Thursday). For those coming from via Panisperma attention the salita del Grillo is a descent. You will find them the Augustan walls. Church of the Knights of Malta now charming running only Sunday at 11 x religious function.

  • Não restou muita coisa, mas contem muita historia! É mais bonito a noite, quando as luzes se acendem! As fotos a seguir, são de todo o "Fori Imperiali" (Foro di Augusto, foro di Traiano e foro di nerva) Fica bem na praca principal de Roma, então nao tem como voce nao ver!
  • I thought it was some kind of place for photo shooting. Apparently you can walk through and go further.
  • beautiful...
  • Extra-territorial residence of the Knights of Rodes: what is their left of their old missions? Today it is a charity. Not to be mean, they come to us to make donations, but to be a member, have neighborhoods of nobility. That beautiful people in their meeting, but with the money of poor people like us. Look for the error.

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.
