  • The monument to Saint Francis of Assisi, opened in 1927 on the occasion of the 7th centenary of the death of the Saint, is by the sculptor Giuseppe Talpur. The positioning connects it visually with the Basilicas of s. Croce in Gerusalemme and St. John Lateran.

  • The notaries, in San Giovanni for the first time during one of the famous concerts for may day; This shows how carelessly I transited by car or by the means of this monumental square, attracted mainly by the grandeur of the basilica or distracted. Instead it is a sculptural group imposing, aggregates numerous sculptures, artwork of Talpur who had previously worked at the monument to Vittorio Emanuele, better known as Altare della patria. Within a garden, located exactly between the Basilicas of San Giovanni and Santa Croce in Gerusalemme, the Saint is represented with his arms raised aloft and palms facing in the direction of the basilica of St. John, in the Act of prayer. Behind him are five other statues, backward a few steps down, than the Saint, remind followers who accompanied him to Rome to meet Pope Innocent III for the recognition of the rule; on the 11th canto of the poem are Tuff paradise, with whom Dante describes the figure of the Saint.

  • On the edge of a park near San giovanni Metro is a great sculpture. Symbolic meaning is large, but we didn't spend much time at the edge of the street.

  • San Francesco in piazza San Giovanni?!? Unfair competition?!? Conflict of interest?!? Yet the Friar of Assisi, facing the imposing basilica of his "colleague" of Holiness, is by almost 1 century landmark in the neighbourhood Appio for Romans and tourists.

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.
