Basilica Santi Giovanni e Paolo

Eva Polino
Next, marvel at the Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Paolo (Saints John and Paul), with its monastery and bell tower built upon the imposing ruins of a temple dedicated to the emperor Claudius. After a lovely walk past the gardens, still cultivated today by the nuns, explore some of medieval Rome and the Circo Massimo (Circus Maximus), where chariot races kept the Roman Empire entertained.
