The church San Vittore al Corpo is a masterpiece; it is located just next to the National Museum of Science and Technology and it is never crowded. Having in mind how intricately decorated it is, it would be a shame not to visit it.
Much has been theorized about the Imperial Mausoleum, the most probable version would be that it was constructed in the late ancient period between the 4th and 5th century, on the site which had already been used as a Christian burial site. It was surrounded by octagonal wall and almost certainly it contained the imperial tombs of Valentinian family (Graziano, Valentinian II). In the 9th and 10th century it was transformed into the Chapel of Sent Gregorio and attached to the church of Sent Vittore al Corpo. The Mausoleum was demolished during the reconstruction of the church in the 16th century.
