  • Will definitely watch time to devote to the Basilica and the scala santa. Devoted 10 minutes to see the Baptistry. Old history and handsome space. View the one that you will be there.

  • Baptistery wanted by the Emperor Constantine, with frescoes dedicated to him and his life, stands out for its elegant and sparkling beauty. In few minutes you will be fascinated and enraptured in front of and inside this masterpiece slightly sheltered in piazza San Giovanni. Even in Rome, where every stone is true story, it is impossible not to be impressed by this Baptistry, almost always forgotten in the classical sightseeing tours. Shame because it deserves and is enchanting!

  • Is the oldest Baptistry in Rome, built by the Emperor Constantine. 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 MELOIOSE because of the bronze hinges when opened and closed, they emit a sound as of organ.

  • This baptistry was the first landmark I saw in Italy. Definitely a must-see
  • Inside this ancient baptistry, I was surprised that you can light electric candles and offer your prayers.
  • Very good place, but no explanation for tourist. Bring a guide !
  • Little gem tucked away from the far more impressive Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano; the baptistery and its adjacent church are built on previous places of worship. Very delicious and large transparent glass allow light passing through nearby buildings to illuminate suggestively. VERY NICE

  • It is a baptistery that still remains from the Foundation of the Basilica and annex thereto, taking advantage of some Roman baths. Remodeled during the first years of the paleocristianismo to octagonal (number of Christianity), when the baptism was by immersion. Its interior is paleocristiano (eight-column structure) and Baroque (coatings and sculptures) and baptisms are celebrated in ordinary way.
