Basilica of Saint Paul Outside The Walls
Piazzale San Paolo, 1, 00146 Roma RM, Italy
God's Bling at St. Paul's ParadiseA sycamore-shaded stroll along the Tiber River takes you to the palm-treed paradise of the Basilica Papale di San Paolo fuori le Mura. Being greeted by this gold facade like the rising sun is a majestic yet calming experience. Colors like these, typically reserved for inside ornamentations, are instead, here, worn like God's bling. After a day of trekking through the stone city center of ruins, fountains and churches this basilica feels completely fresh and extraordinary.
