  • When it came ago the wedding and there is light in the chandelier, was gorgeous. Lions flanking the entrance and a rustic mosaic at the entrance, the taste was good, I thought.

  • Interesting Church, built on elements of different stages and Roman periods. The extraordinary medieval Bell Tower draws attention also

  • Under the basilica dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo al Celio, founded at the beginning of the fifth century by Senator Pammachius, extends an extraordinary complex of buildings from the Roman age. Tradition identifies these places with the House in which the Ss John and Paul, two officers of the Court of Constantine, lived and were buried after having suffered martyrdom during the reign of Julian the Apostate (361-363 ad). The vast archaeological site, discovered in 1887 by Padre Germano of St. Stanislaus, Rector of the Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Paolo al Celio, still officiated by Passionist fathers, unveils a suggestive itinerary through over 20 environments on various levels, partly frescoed with paintings dating from the 3rd century AD and the middle ages. Rooms decorated, cut from the Foundation of the Church, showing a glimpse of daily life and an interesting mix of cultural and religious themes. From public housing to rich domus, until the construction of the monument events: these Christian titulus that was formed from the merger of a number of buildings. The core consists of a domus on two levels, The first century AD, occupied by a private bath (balneum) downstairs and an insula, characteristic village popular with a porch and taberne at street level and housing on the upper floors, built in the early 3rd century a.d. along the Clivus Scauri. The different units were joined together during the 3rd century AD by a single owner and transformed into an elegant and luxurious domus with representative areas decorated with frescoes of great value. The extraordinary archaeological stratification and the excellent condition of the facilities is already outside, since the existing perimeter wall of the early Christian Church has incorporated the frontage of the ancient insula, which recognize the arched portico along the Clivus Scauri, and two upper floors. The decorative motifs that adorn the halls of domus, are traditional themes of the classical repertoire. In the modern antiquarian, equipped with innovative solutions, exposes the finds from excavations and the basilica. A valuable collection of Islamic ceramics from the 12th century. The January 16, 2002 le Case Romane del Celio and the adjoining House owned by the Fund for religious buildings-the Ministry of the Interior, have been reopened to the public. The archaeological complex, after extensive renovations, provides visitors with the new entrance from the Clivus Scauri, completely renovated and made accessible to the handicapped. The restoration, carried out by a team of specialists and technicians led by the archaeological Superintendence of Rome and the Soprintendenza per i Beni Artistici, have enabled the recovery and conservation of valuable paintings, threatened by the particular microclimate.

  • Beautiful basilica just beside the Colosseum. Definitely worth a visit
  • Beautifull place
  • Possibly among the most beautiful churches in Rome, especially for the location
  • one of the hidden basilicas that you want to find
  • We find it way to Trastevere, after passing by the Colosseum. Wonderful, super hidden, but very beautiful. Visit recommended. Over, I was just ready for a wedding. If they pass through Rome, don't miss to visit it.
