Leaving the building, looking to the right, one is astonished at the grandeur of the Colosseum. He couldn't imagine how rich this area is! In front of you the Basilica of St. Clement, rich in charm and memories. A few steps away the monastery of the SS.Quattro, a corner of peace out of the world that offers a splendid cloister and a Serbian jewel of 1200: the Gothic room (6 ’). The Basilica of St. John, just over (10 ’). The garden of Villa Celimontana and the beautiful walk on the Palatine Hill which, passing by the church of the Saints Giovanni and Paolo (10 ’) leads to the Circus Maximus and to Caracalla (15’). Going towards the Colosseum on the right the Domus Aurea (7 ’) book a visit. And, going up the Celio, the church of S. Pietro in Vincoli with the magnificent Mosè by Michelangelo just restored with a suggestive lighting (15 ’). Continuing the district of the Roman nightlife, very "cool" even for the less young, full of ethnic restaurants and trattorias. Perfect for an aperitif or for "street food", but also for a non-signature shopping. On the left, beyond the Colosseum, the entrance to the Forums and the walk to the churches of S. Sebastiano and S. Bonaventura (20 ’). Along the Forum along the Fori the monumental promenade, totally pedestrianized, which leads you to Piazza Venezia (30 ’).
