    The Four Major Basilicas of Rome

    St. Peter's Basilica

    St. Peter’s Basilica

    Rome has over 400 churches, so it’s fairly unlikely you will see more than a tenth of them.Four of them are major basilicas: St. Peter, St. John Lateran, St. Mary Major and St. Paul Outside the Walls. With three minor basilicas, these constitute the traditional destinations of the Seven Church Tour for pilgrims to Rome.

    St. Peter’s Basilica, a UNESCO heritage site, is the most important and largest religious structure of Catholicism. It was built on the supposed tomb of the apostle Peter, buried on the same site where he was martyred.It is the tallest building in the city, 119 meters with its dome. Rebuilt mostly in the sixteenth century, during the Renaissance, Bramante, Bernini and Michelangelo contributed to it.Legally situated in the Vatican, not in Rome, it is the church of the Pope.

    Saint John Lateran

    Saint John Lateran

    Saint John Lateran is the cathedral of the Pope as Bishop of Rome. Property of the Vatican, it is considered the mother of all churches. This is indeed the oldest church of the city, originally built by Constantine in around 320.Rebuilt in the course of history, it is in the baptistery that the very early Christian ruins are best preserved.

    Santa Maria Maggiore

    Santa Maria Maggiore

    Santa Maria Maggiore is the oldest and largest church dedicated to the Virgin. The entire course of Christian art can be charted here: from the early Christian with its Ionic columns; through to the Romanic Medieval as with the bell tower; the Renaissance in which time the interior was extensively redesigned; and the Baroque as seen in its façade and domes.

    St. Paul Outside the Walls

    St. Paul Outside the Walls

    Destroyed by fire in 1823, St. Paul Outside the Walls was fully rebuilt exactly as it was. However, the thirteenth century cloister survived the disaster. The atmosphere is intensely sober and majestic. The mosaic of Apocalypse located under the arch dates back to the fifth century.

    Going out in Rome. Its Neighborhoods, Bars and Nightclubs

    Going out in Rome : bars

    Campo dei Fiori, evening

    The rendez-vous for youth, the neighborhoods, bars and clubs

    From early evening until 2 am

    The Roman youth and not so young too gather in many places in Rome. Among these, one of the most popular in the center is Campo dei Fiori.
    Some neighborhoods have many bars and pubs, usually open until 2 am, like in Trastevere, especially with the little bar San Callisto, minimal but very welcoming, near Santa Maria in Trastevere.There is plenty of choice for having a drink in the Navone district (consider, for its style Caffé della Pace, in Via della Pace, and Bar del Fico, in Piazza del Fico) but also the Rione Monti area (around Piazza Madonna dei Monti), the area next to the Colosseum or around the Pantheon too (see map below).

    Bars à Rome

    Districts with bars (click to enlarge)

    More eccentric, and less touristy, are the other areas frequented by the Roman and student youth: the neighborhoods of San Lorenzo and of the Pigneto (see map below).
    The student area, San Lorenzo, is full of bars, various pubs, some with live music. This area is located northeast, relatively far from the center but still close to Termini Station.

    Another district, Pigneto, young and popular, is full of bars, night bars, pubs and small clubs.

     

     

    Before and after 2 am

    Dancing in Rome, clubs and bars

    Dancing in Rome, clubs and bars

    After 2 am, clubs and night bars: Some are dotted around Piazza Navona (La Maison, La Cabala, Shari Vari) and the Pantheon, but most are located in the Testaccio neighborhood, around the hill, and in the Pigneto area.
    See this site for a list www.discotecheroma.com/locali.
    We highlight three clubs offering good live music in general: Circolo degli Artisti near Pigneto with a concert hall and a large, well furnished outdoor area; Angelo Mai in the same style, though a little smaller and more popular, L’Asino che Vola near Metro line A, which is a nice club inside.

    Ostia was active since the times of the Roman republic, and remained a residential and administrative centre after the construction of the neighbouring ports of Claudius and Trajan, with close to 50,000 residents.

    The ruins of the city, which today are located two kilometres from the coast due to sedimentation, retain many houses and public buildings.This is a particularly important example of ancient daily life.
