Hotels in Monti near Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano

The neighborhood of San Giovanni is located just south of Rome's city center, which makes it ideal for comfortable hotel stays in Rome. While it's within walking distance of many fabulous Roman attractions, San Giovanni and the neighboring district of Esquilino are also diverse residential areas that give you a feel for how everyday citizens of Rome live their lives. San Giovanni hotels are often cheaper than places to stay in Rome's center, but you can still enjoy the excitement of Rome.

Attractions in San Giovanni

The San Giovanni neighborhood is lively and boasts a number of historical landmarks and cultural attractions worth a visit. Don't miss the 9th century Santa Maria Maggiore, which is a stunning basilica located on the top of Esquiline hill. The Santo Stefano Rotondo, Scala Sancta and Museo della Liberazione are also wonderful destinations in this area of Southern Rome. For incredible shopping, head to the ancient indoor market called Mercato Esquilino, which is found just outside the Piazza Vittorio in San Giovanni.

Getting Around San Giovanni

If you want to head straight to the basilica of San Giovanni, for which the neighborhood is named, take the neighborhood Metro Line A station by the same name.

It's also easy to get around San Giovanni on foot.

Insider Tips on San Giovanni
