  • This ancient church built in the time of Constantine outside the walls of the city, near the burial (the catacombs) of the Holy Virgin and martyr Agnes, was renovated and restored to its former glory in the seventh century by Pope Honorius, then Julius II della Rovere had built the bell tower which still tiles the Basilica. Cardinal de Medici opened the three portals on the front, while Pius V had put the relics of St Agnes and his sister s. Emerenziana in a silver reliquary under the main Altar. The three naves that develops the Church, topped by an elegant gallery are decorated with elegant Roman columns is topped by Corinthian capitals. The decoration in fresco's nineteenth century work of Busiri Vici commissioned by Pius IX.

  • This Basilica is outside large Roman churches, i.e. from the most famous and crowded. It offers yet a beautiful Byzantine mosaic, the women's Gallery (where they were the ladies who could not be mixed with the men downstairs, just because these do not distract him too ...) and the catacombs, really nice since they have an extension does not yet fully discovered. The nearby Mausoleo di Santa Costanza offers a dome to amphoras. That is because the soil friable builders chose to put amphorae, a stuck with each other so as not to burden this beautiful facility that still sees chic weddings take place in Rome.

  • Beautiful place of worship and culture. Built in 600, well maintained, above the catacombs open to visitors, as well as the nearby Mausoleo di Santa Costanza, a central plan with ambulatory, erected in the 4th century.

  • This enormous 4th century structure looks like a church, but was probably a funerary enclosure without an overall roof. The best view of it is from the Via Bressanone. The interior is private property.
  • The Basilica is the same as the via Nomentana which I previously reviewed. Only that this is, in my opinion, more picturesque.

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.
