The Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls, 132 m long. the largest in Rome after St. Peter, stands on the site which tradition identifies as the burial of the Apostle Paul in a Roman necropolis, as though Christian, was a Roman citizen.

His tomb soon became a place of worship, and the emperor Constantine erected on a small basilica, of which only the curve of the apse, which ended in 324 AD under Pope Sylvester I, is still conserved.

Partially destroyed by fire on the night of July 15, 1823 (survived the ciborium by Arnolfo di Cambio, some mosaics, the apse, the triumphal arch, the cloister and the candlestick), it was rebuilt by Pasquale Belli thanks to the offerings of faithful came from all over the world.

This reconstruction (from 1825 to 1864) radically changed the original structure.

In December 2006, were completed some renovations, with the demolition of the altar which stood before the papal altar, and thereby making visible the marble sarcophagus, which, according to tradition, contains the mortal remains of the Apostle Paul, and  the small apse.

Inside the Basilica, were buried today only two popes: St. Felix III and John XIII.

Near the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls, there are several accommodations of B&B and self catering apartments, which are able to meet the demands of those who want to stay in the area, from where you can easily reach the Eur area or for those who have go to the Third University of Rome.
