Have to take metro to get here as it is not in the center. If you are visiting then look for Pompi, a famous tiramisu restaurant. You can just ask around. Everyone knows it.

check your times because it opens and closes throughout the day. We had to venture back to see it all, but it was worth it.

You must do your homework in Rome as not to miss the most important church in Western history. This is the official church of Rome, the church of the Pope and one not to miss.

If you are traveling to Rome to learn more about the Catholic Church you must include a visit to this basilica. Build before St. Peter's and with a much more austere style it will move you in ways different from the grandeur of St. Peter's.

this was out of this world . beautiful windows painting Etc. It was lovely to see however I do think all that gold could be used to help people who are suffering via poverty or war. (just my opinion.) I feel it would be just as wonderful without the glamour.
