Definitely a must see. The mosaics up behind the altar are stunning. Oldest basilica consecrated to the blessed Mother, if I'm not mistaken. If you are in the neighborhood early Sunday evenings (7-ish pm) you can catch a lovely sung Byzantine liturgy.

an amazing amalgam of Roman remnants and elements cobbled together into a beautiful church. Very unusual and very interesting.

Amazing city on the Tiber, the most beautiful one in all Europe. Fascinating temple in the exciting quarter of Rome. I don' t know what say sooner - women holding lamps, mosaics by Cavallini, Madonna della Clemenza - I have no words. Don't miss

Santa Maria is the main church in Trastevere and one of the oldest in this old city. The mosaics are beautiful, the columns unique (each one of them) and the mix of styles from different ages is uncommon even for Roman standards

This is one of the oldest churches in Rome. It is a minor Bascilica, and some say the first dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. We had the pleasure of having mass celebrated for us by an American Cardinal in one of the private chapels-very special.

Beautiful mid size church in the middle of a trendy/foodie neighborhood. We were walking around the area and stopped in to rest our feet and were surprised with a wedding taking place. We sat in the back, watched the ceremony and were thrilled to be part of this cultural experience. The entire service was in Italian but we have been... More

When in Rome, visiting churches is one of the most interesting things you can do. This church has a small entry fee, and requirement of covered shoulders and knee length pants. It is beautiful and filled with history. The second reason to visit this church is that is in Trastevere. Located on the other side of the Tiber river, this... More
