This is the legendary lie detector, and also the most famous covers of the Yin well - the mouth of truth. The reddest shade cover in history is situated in the picture of this church with a tall tower. Although it is close to the closing time, there are still long lines of photos in front of the door. So, instead of getting busy, pat it across the iron railings.
The Piazza della bocca della Verità contains the Temples of Ercole and Temple of Portunus. The legend of Bocca della Verità (Mouth of Truth) says that if you place your hand in the mouth and have lies on your conscience, the mouth will bite your hand. You arrive to Bocca della verità in 10 minutes by walk.
Do not miss a visit to the Basilica of Our Lady in Trastevere. This Basilica is one of the oldest Churches of Rome. The basic floor plan and wall structure of the church dates back to the 340s. After the visit, do not look at your map and just get lost in the nice small cobblestone streets of Trastevere. You will find plenty of bars & restaurants where to relax and have a good time.
Farewell to the majesty of Venice Square and enjoy the city street view of Rome, we walked to the "mouth of honesty" at the entrance of the Kosmedi Church (the fifth stop). There is a long line of tourists waiting to take pictures with the scenic spots. This is a disc carved with the head of the sea god. In the film "Roman Holiday", it is said that the hand is put in his mouth, and if he tells a lie, he can not pull it out. As a result, he frightens the lovely princess. In fact, this is only a well cover of the ancient Roman era. Instead of waiting in line, we entered the church and grabbed the gap to take pictures.
Faced with this pile of stones 2,000 years ago, I imagined the scene of the TV drama Spartacus in my mind. I still could not understand the role of the stone blocks on the playing field. The introduction says that this is not only a place for the nobles to entertain slaves, but also for the common people to enter the Colosseum for leisure and entertainment. At that time, there were few sports events. They took it as a stadium. To put it plainly, the Colosseum was today's Bird's Nest.
Every sunday night you can assist at the celebration with chants and procession of the oriental rite and also admire the beautiful mosaics.
