The Dawning of Christian Rome – from San Giovanni in Laterano to Santa Croce in Gerusalemme

Towards the South you will find the Basilica of Santa Croce, the Basilica of San Giovanni and the Lateranensi Palaces. It is a route unwinding between two splendid piazzas: the eighteenth century square fanning out before the Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano, which has become by some strange turn of fate the lay meeting point for demonstrations which regularly take places here and that of the Church of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme with its adjoining Museum of Musical Instruments.

Renaissance and Baroque Rome

You cross the Rione Monti which was the most densely populated area in ancient Rome, a labyrinth of alleyways, small shops and markets. Today it continues to keep this popular connotation accompanied, however, by a most innovative side that make the slums one of the most innovative areas of the City, full of bars and restaurants. Ruling sovereign over the entire district is the imposing Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore overlooking the piazza of the same name.
