There tree so many wonderful churches to visit in Rome. This church is so beautiful it took my breath away. For the first time I really felt I must be in the presence of God. The cupola when lit (pay 1 Euro) just radiates a warm golden glow and the at work is stunning. St Peters is awesome but did... More

Super old church with a very cool history built on the site of one of the first Christian gathering places (someone's home). Being Rick Steve's audio guide of Trastevere with you to learn more!

My husband and I were advised to visit this part of Rome and church by our hotel and we are very pleased we did. The church is magnificent with a beautiful gold interior behind the altar which lights up if you put a few cents into the machine. The ceilings are also fantastic with a gold one near the altar...

If you visit Rome please do not forget to visit theSanta Maria in Trastevere church, it is not jus a beautiful work of art but it is surrounded by an exotic, romantic and fun collection of bars, restaurant and shops that make it a dream come true of what Rome is all about.

At this church you will find the first icone/image of Holy Mother Mary. It is the first church built by christians in Rome, and it is beautiful. If you go at 20:00 you will see the beautiful pray of community Santo Egidio. They have translation for many languages and you can enjoy the meditation if you want. It was a... More

We happened to be in Trastevere on a Friday evening - just wandering around while waiting for the restuarant to open for dinner - stumbled upon this without guidance - sat around the fountain in the fading light, peeked in the church, said hello to a passing nun, basically let the kids run a bit and just soaked in the...

There are many churches in Rome but this is one of the oldest and that alone justifies a visit. The location in Trastevere give the oppotunity to talk a walk through the small cobbled streets filled with shops and drop by this beautiful church on the way. It is located on a small open square where you can take a... More

We paid 10 euros to go inside. Please be aware you have to have your knees and shoulders covered before going, however they took our money before actually telling us that. It is a lovely chapel/church but I personally felt it wasnt worth 10 euros given that similar places are free.
