Monumental complex of St. Agnese: From the guesthouse are visible the ruins of the ancient Constantinian Basilica of S.Agnese. built from 337 to 351 A.D. for the will of Costantia, emperor Costantine's daughter and devotee of Agnese, stands nearby the catacombs where the young martyr was buried. The Basilica is part of the monumental complex of St. Agnese fuori le mura, with the catacombs, the Mausoleum of Constantia and the present-day Basilica of St. Agnese, which was erected from 625 to 638 d.C., and whose mosaic within, represents one of the most important example of byzantine art in Rome.
Roman Roads: One of the entrances to the Basilica of S. Agnese fuori le Mura is on Via Nomentana, an ancient and very important Roman consular road that once began at the Porta Nomentana in the Aurelian walls e went north-east to Nomentum. At the present time the road starts at Porta Pia, about a hundred meters from the ancient entrance to the city, which was designed by Michelangelo and constructed by Pope Pio IV, and which was also theatre of the Seizure of Rome that in 1870 declared the end of the State of the Church and it’s annexing to the Kingdom of Italy. This consular road was the favourite road of the roman nobility who transformed ancient rural houses and estates into their mansions just outside the city walls. The most famous of these is Villa Torlonia, a beautiful public park that owes its particular charm to the originality of its garden that is disseminated with constructions commissioned by the Torlonia family to famous architects,

“Even a journey of a thousand miles starts with only one step”. LAO TSU
There are some places that more than others, are able to move us, to arouse our imagination, not because they are more beautiful, but perhaps because they are shrouded by a strange spell that involves each of us in a different way.
There are curious places, ancient shops of tradition that are worth a departure from the classical itineraries.
Places where to stroll without time and to stop and enjoy deep down nothing but what they have to tell us.
From our web-site "Agnes' Diary " : Roman walks
Visiting the archaeological excavations of Ostia Antica is an inner excursion, nearly a solitary excursion.
Quite far, alas, o perhaps luckily, from Rome, it enchants you from the moment you arrive with its charm so ancient, that it seems holy. On starting to walk along the roman road you immediately have the impression of hearing the prattle of its inhabitants of the past and wandering about the houses and shops you imagine them engrossed in their daily activities.
Then when this mysterious spell has really captured you, you find yourself in the Roman Theater, your eyes lose themselves among those ruins and taking seat on those stones, serene and touched, barely caressing them with your fingers, you cannot but feel history.
You won’t certainly miss going around Campo de Fiori and the little streets in the Regola district. Veer off then, towards Piazza Farnese, if it isn’t already your destination, then turn left towards Via dei Pettinari and you will find yourself in the small Place of Capo di Ferro, there at number 13 is Palazzo Spada.
Palace, built by Cardinal Girolamo Capodiferro during the 16th century, and bought by Cardinal Bernardino Spada in 1632, at the present time it is the seat of the State Council.
If you don’t have time to drop into the interior of the Spada Gallery, that however well deserves a visit, enabling you to see the important operas of the 16th and 17th centuries that are exhibited there, and, if you are not struck with curiosity to see the great statue of Pompeo Magno at whose feet Julius Caesar is supposed to have been assassinated, kindly ask the museum keeper to enable you to visit the garden, and there enjoy the Borromini Gallery.
I won’t say anything else, I don’t want to spoil the surprise that the ingenious architect reserves us.
The Domus Aurea
In that wonderful area of the ruins of ancient Rome, too often and not only recently modified in its aspect, you can still try to imagine how could Rome have been once upon a time, approaching all the rest with different eyes.
On the Colle Oppio you can visit what remains of the sumptuous imperial residence, only a small part of the nearly 200 acres of estate on which the Domus Aurea was built. It was desired by Nero, after the terrible fire that destroyed a large part of the city in 64 D.C. of which he was also accused of starting.
The guest pavilion, saved because used subsequently by Traianus as foundations for his Thermae, permits us to “see”, in a suggestive semidarkness, that which before was full of light, and that had a spectacular panorama on the Stagnum Neronis, a large artificial lake in that part of the valley where, later on, the Coliseum was built.
Take a jumper with you, it can be cool down under there.
