After spending 2 hours walking from St. Peter's along the Tiber River looking for Trastevere district, we finally found it.

The church was interesting but everyone seemed to be enjoying the sunny day in the square outside. Musicians and coffee shops and lots of locals and tourists.

I love this little church. Go for its air of serenity and glittering mosaics, but stay for the piazza in which it's situated, which sits in the heart of bustling Trastevere.

Free to enter, take a few minutes to enter this very old church in the heart of Trastevere. Very ornate and beautiful.

Worth the stop. One of the earliest churches in Rome. The mosaics are amazing. The piazza outside is a fun people watching location as well.
