The buliding contains the original doors to the Forum over two thousand years old.
The interior of the church is breath taking - the ceiling is an amazing work of art as are the line of staues of all the saints that leads to the main alter.
You can visit the garden that was completed by Pope Leo XIII - his tomb is contained in the church to the left of the main alter.
Many people do not know that this is the Popes own church as he is also the Bishop of Rome - St Peters is the main church of the Vatican.
Over the road from San Giovanni are the 'Steps of Christ' - the very ones that he climbed to be judged by Pilot - very special place, you can only climb these steps on your knees,try and arrive early as the place is always packed.
The doors of the Forum are at the rear of the church - massive and impressive - as is the entire complex of the Church - its a must see on your trip to Rome.
