It's a hidden gem, a lot less crowded then other touristic places in Rome of similar significance. The architecture, mosaics and all the interior are extremely interesting, with pagan reminiscences in early Christian decorations. The sarcophagus of the emperor Constantine's daughter is impressive, even if...More

Well it's nice there. Impressive sarcophagus. That said it would be nice if the place have had written information in English. If it was there we didn't find it.

This amazing, historic and truly beautiful place belongs in all books of architecture, history and art. Just come in and sit for 15 or 20 minutes and the serenity sweeps through your body as you marvel at the miraculous space surrounding you.

We walked 5km slowly from Campo Di Fiori to this location taking in other great historic sites on the way. But this is an amazing building - especially to survive much less messed about with than many other early churches in Rome. Make sure you...More

There are some interesting mosaics and you can feel the age of the place. It's circular with a domed roof; it's apparent that it was originally designed as a mausoleum rather than a church.
