This is a must see in Rome!! There are tourists there but it is not so overrun by them that you can't enjoy yourself while taking in all the artwork and statues.

St John in Lateran was the primary basilica in Christendom before St Peters. That plus it's location in the centre of Rome, makes it a must for many visit to Rome.

Everyone should visit this historical basilica which is the cathedral of the Bishop of Rome- the Pope. It is the first of the four major basilicas of Rome built in the fourth century by Constantine the Great.
