  • This site is well preserved and unlike everything else most people do in Rome so I highly recommend. Depending on when you go, many of the rooms might be blocked off but it is still worth a trip.

  • Surely a five star place. Perhaps the most iconic in Rome? To be honest, Rome has so many iconic places that I lost the count... Anyway, near to. Vetican, great bridges.. Simply outstanding...
  • Greater sight from the outside, I hope the pictures make sense of the very nice place this is. The architecture is different from other landmarks as it was intended for a different purpose in the religious history. Prepare to walk a lot. I would recommend the walking tour if possible.
