Mausoleo di Santa Costanza, Rome
(4.7/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Built during the 4th century by Emperor Constantine as a mausoleum for his daughter, Mausoleo di Santa Costanza remains one of the earliest Christian buildings with a central dome. The interior mosaics, once a key component of the mausoleum's decorations, no longer exist. The ambulatory contains two apses, each with mosaics depicting Christ Pantocrator, probably dating back the 5th and 7th centuries. Mausoleo di Santa Costanza is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Rome Edition.

  • My wife and I got married in this church and it was a fantastic experience. It's a beautiful place with a unique light. The round shape makes it unique and the historical context in which it appears does nothing but increase its charm. Only problem for a wedding is the parking, the rest went very smoothly. There are many rules to follow during a wedding but it justifies the fact that it is a historical place.

  • In a secluded place, but with easy access. Buses there are regular Encores. On this second visit to the mausoleum went to dusk and stillness that breathes, is worthwhile. It is a pleasure to stroll under the dome that surrounds this mausoleum, with centralized plant to circulate. Go looking at every detail of the frescoes. The fauna and flora in great detail are represented. The arches of half point that separate the ambulatory of the part central presented a vision beautiful. Also Oh that set is in the fresh of the niches of the ambulatory.

  • I was here when a wedding had just finished. I really had to think about the lyrics of Beatles song Eleanor Rigby,when I saw all the rice to be picked up at the floor. Wonderful experience!
  • Fascinating place. We happened on a small wedding there. We'll worth the trip. Off the B1 Metro line at the S. Angese/Anniliana station.
  • My wife and I have here the sacrament of marriage contract ... unforgettable. Beautiful from the altar by Spouses to see in everyone's face. Magical place ...
