I am not a big fan of viewing ancient churches, but this one was very impressive. It was not crowded at all when we went, and was very easy to move around and actually take in the ancient architecture.

After a 3 mile walk in hot conditions we were hoping our mission to cross the Tiber and see the more 'bohemian' quarter of Trastevere would live up to expectations. It did. Tucked away in its own characterful Piazza (with fountain) the beautiful little (by Roman standards) church offered us fine, cool marble and mosaic floors, stunning mosaic murals and... More

This church is located in one of the most beautiful and lively squares in Rome. The inside is beautiful, with plenty of art in every corner.

Vatican is the king of churches, but in Rome, this is also one of the church which is very impressive. Near Tiber river, a walk in this lovely neighborhood is rejuvenating. You can relax while strolling through the beautiful narrow streets. Enjoy cheap lunch/dinner. The church is very quiet. Not as many tourists as Vatican, so here you can really... More

Located on a square in the center of the Tastevere area, the basilica has kept its medieval style. The Byzantine front is made of mosaic; inside, 3 naves and more mosaics, 7 of them from Cavallini. Warning; don't take meals in the restaurants on the other side of the piazza: they are ridiculously expensive (113€ for a simple lunch for... More

Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere is my favorite place for morning- into-afternoon cappuccino. I sit at Cafe DiMarzio across the square from the church of Santa Maria in Trastevere and relax. It's beautiful. The people watching is fantastic there and it really comes alive at night.

Lovely church with impressive mosaics , but it was heaving with tourists which detracted from the sacredness of the place. People need to remember places like this are still religious buildings. Too many churches in Rome have visitors not behaving respectfully (or turning up dressed inappropriately - I saw a woman being asked to leave one church because her top... More

Santa Maria in Trastevere is located at a lovely neighborhood, Trastevere. The church is lovely inside, quiet and peaceful. When we visited we were lucky enough to see a ceremony take place. There were people and a priest that sang some gospel songs (one of them had a guitar too). A great experience indeed!

We visit every time this church because of its beautiful and impressive mosaics. This time we were lucky to notice in advance that there was a recital, which we enjoyed a lot.

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
