In the Baths of Caracalla, the largest of Roman public baths, built in the 3rd century and destroyed during the Gothic War some 300 years later.

"In 1819, Shelley wrote most of Prometheus Unbound here, and he described the site in his preface: This poem was chiefly written upon the mountainous ruins of the Baths of Caracalla, among the flowery glades and thickets of odoriferous blossoming trees which are extended in ever-winding labyrinths upon its immense platforms and dizzy arches suspended in the air. The bright blue sky of Rome, and the effect of the vigorous awakening spring in that divinest climate, and the new life with which it drenches the spirits even to intoxication, were the inspiration of this drama." (George H. Sullivan: Not Built in a Day: Exploring the Architecture of Rome, 2005).

Inside the Papal Archbasilica of St. John Lateran in Rome.

Wikipedia: It is the oldest and ranks first among the four Papal Basilicas or major basilicas of Rome (having the cathedra of the Bishop of Rome). It claims the title of ecumenical mother church among Roman Catholics. [...] The cathedral itself is located outside of the Vatican boundaries, within the city of Rome. However it has been granted a special extraterritorial status as one of the properties of the Holy See. This is also the case with several other buildings, after the solving of the Roman Question with the Lateran Treaty.

Inside the Basilica of San Giovanni a Porta Latina ("Saint John Before the Latin Gate") near the Porta Latina of the Aurelian Wall in Rome.

"S. Giovanni was originally built by St Gelasius (492–96), rebuilt by Hadrian I in 772 and reconsecrated by Celestine III in 1191; subsequently it was restored several times. Nevertheless the interior prserves the rare simplicity of its very early origins. Beautiful antique columns of varying style line the aisles; these lead to two minor apses, flanking the main one, in the oriental fashion. A most unusual feature in Rome, the main apse is pierced by three windows, but rarer still, all three apses are polygonal on the outside. A soft golden light filters through the thin sheets of selenite in the windows, illuminating some faded but exceedingly interesting twelfth-century frescoes high up on both sides of the nave (scenes from Old and New Testaments) and in the presbytery (symbols of the evangelists and the twenty-four Elders of the Apocalypse in two rows)." (Georgina Masson: The Companion Guide to Rome, Woodbridge 2009).
