The "Doctors" of San Giovanni in Laterano: a Neighborhood Treat
This year we lived in the area generally known as San Giovanni, after the basilica at its northern end, San Giovanni in Laterano. Our apartment was on via Olbia, and the commercial center of our particular neighborhood--and in Rome all neighborhoods are "particular"--was via Gallia.
The neighborhood has many virtues, including quick access to some of Rome's biggest attractions--the Coliseum is just a mile away. And one of them involves the basilica, though we seldom go inside.
