    There are remains of the great funerary basilica built by Constantine near the Church of St Agnes Outside the Wall. The only part that is well-preserved is the mausoleum of Costantina, Constantine's daugther, and this is now the church of Santa Costanza. It can be accessed by a short path from the garden of the aforementioned church. The circular building has beautifully preserved 4th century mosaics. Her porphyry sarcophagus has been moved to the Vatican Museums, and a copy is in place now. Very peaceful and contemplative space.

    Open from 9:00 to 12:00 and 15:00 to 18:00, but popular for weddings which might interfere with your visit (to be fair, the edifice lacks any other religious function).

    I was here when a wedding had just finished. I really had to think about the lyrics of Beatles song Eleanor Rigby, when I saw all the rice to be picked up at the floor. Wonderful experience!
