You have to visit the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore but make sure also to check what’s underground. Here you’ll be able to visit the relics of a paleochristian Basilica and a patrician villa with a unique frescoed calendar, depicting country scenes.

One of the most important Churches in Rome, they say that the ceiling of this Cathedral is covered in the first gold that Christopher Columbus brought back from the New World!

The Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore is the most important and best preserved of Roman churches dedicated to the Madonna. It rises on top of the Esquiline Hill and is the only remaining example of early Christian architecture, even though it has over time been further embellished.
