Hidden away in the heart of Trastevere is a beautiful 15th century cloister, which is a veritable oasis of peace and tranquillity.
The cloister belongs to the church of San Giovanni Battista dei Genovesi, which once catered for Rome's community of citizens from Genoa.
The cloister can only be visited on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons (Winter Time: 14.00-16.00/Summer Time: 15.00-18.00). It is closed in August.
