We continued with our journey. There is no stopping us despite the heat but before that time for some refreshments.
Italian pastries and some kind of iced coffee/ice cream.. really good especially for such a hot weather. We had to take the Metro to get to the next church and while inside the train we got some entertainment. The singer was so good, we felt a little bit sad that we needed to get out for our stop.
Presenting to you – San Giovani
There were lots of statues all over the church – especially of all the apostles.. I managed to take some pictures but not everyone.In real life they are really, really big. However it is not much visited like the Saint Peter’s and is not really crowded as you can see from the pictures. Here you are really feel to wander without bumping to anybody.
The candle is just an electric one, otherwise the soot from the candles will darken the church’s interior. This is one of the many chapels found in the cathedral. I think I saw about 4 (but could be more), they are open and you could come in to pray. Picture taking inside is not allowed so as not to disturb those who are praying.
There are so many beautiful things to see and admire. I think you can really spend a few hours here if you want to. Get one of the audio guides to help you out. All the basilicas are actually for free – you just need to give a few hours if you are interested to go in the treasury of the church.
