Santa Costanza

Rome is home to many astonishing churches that boggle the mind, such as the Mausoleum of St Costanza. Tucked away outside the Aurelian Walls, this 4th-century church is an example of early Christian art and architecture. Its mosaics of natural elements, such as birds, palms, and plants, along with the dome and the unusual design make it the perfect setting for couples to exchange their wedding vows.

Do & See

Rome is one of a kind. No other city — not even Athens, Istanbul, London, or New York — has as many world-class sites as the Eternal City. Walking down Via del Fori Imperiali towards the Colosseum will impress even the most spoiled and shopping-crazed teenager. The city has so much to offer: besides the Roman heritage, there are also medieval neighbourhoods, well-designed squares, colourful markets, and the Vatican City with St Peter’s Basilica and its incredible museums.
