  • A few steps from the Colosseum and San Giovanni in Laterano a gem little known (thankfully) from mass tourism, the complex of Nero (executed by Diocletian artisans because they refused to carve pagan idols) is one of the most intriguing places in Rome. Detect now testimonials from various historical periods: from early Christian walls, from a Roman site Carolingian Church in medieval fortifications (which not enough to defend it during the sack of the Normans of Robert Guiscard in 1084). In the 13th century frescoes with Byzantine influences of the chapel of San Silvestro, highlights the fundamental consistency with the famous apocryphal of the Constitutum Constantini (IX century) on the transmission of the temporal power by Constantine to the Pope of Rome. Educational and engaging classroom Gothic frescoes (by appointment only and twice per month!), with human figures on a blue background in azurite, to represent the twelve months, with the arts, and the ribs of the vault of the four seasons and the sail the zodiac signs mostly highly degraded. His head is preserved in a reliquary of St Sebastian, and of particular interest are the two chapels inside the monastery, with access from the cloister: the parish of Santa Barbara and the Oratory of San Nicola. Leave a bid with the sisters before we left and if you're interested, the convent offers the possibility to stay for "retreats", booking at 06 70475427.
