#68 of 252 in Historic Sites in Rome
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.

  • Circular, ancient and fascinating. One of the monuments in this area that absolutely must be seen! In summer days it is easy that you'll find the celebration of a marriage because it is very coveted by future spouses.

  • Built in the mid-300 a.d. as a Memorial and burial place of the daughter of the Emperor Constantine, this wonderful round building with a dome that is supported by twelve pairs of twin columns and an ambulatory with a barrel vault decorated with marvelous mosaics flood, as well as those of the caps of absdiole. One of which is the copy of the great tomb of Constantine in red porphyry marble. Atmosphere and beauty! Not to be missed.

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.
