Beautiful!

A wonderful quiet visit to a beautiful church. The ceilings are outstanding. The peacefulness is remarkable.

This is a quiet little church that often is filled with locals dropping by during their lunch time. Close to Galleria Alberto Sordi and Piazza Colonna, it's worth a visit if you are in the area. The typical Baroque exterior gives way to a somewhat dark interior. On the right side, the first chapel holds a miraculous well as well... More

This small church is amongst the most beautiful. Rather than the main altar more attention is gathered to the back of the church on the right upon entering. This is because miraculous water flows from the well and believers are given small disposable cups to drink some water from. This miraculous water flows from the well which a painting of... More

Santa Maria in Via was ordered constructed by Pope Innocent VIII and it was built in 1491-1513. The decoration of the church is simple. The main altar is quite good and there is a dome over it. The church has little natural light.

Though small and rather unassuming as compared to other churches in Rome, Santa Maria in Via is a basilica church in Rome. The church or a chapel existed as far back as the 9th century, but was rebuilt following reports of a miracle. In 1165, it was recorded as Santa Maria in Via, which means "on the Way," referencing nearby... More

This was a church that was not on the plans and that we visited by chance. It is just behind the Galleria Alberto Sordi (main entrance in Via del Corso) and it seemed that wasn't visited by tourists very often. Don't expect the environment of the big churches, it is a church "for the romans" in the way that it... More

This is a nice little church with a lovely facade, but a rather ordinary and small interior. Is it worth a visit? Well, if you can spare 5 minutes and the church is on your way from point A to point B, then yes. Otherwise - it's certainly not a "must see" in Rome.

Staying in Colonna

Neighborhood Profile
Colonna
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very center of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping center, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
