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.

Very pretty and quaint courtyard, quiet and pretty church in the centre of the Trastevere neighbourhood in Rome - has to be one of my favourites in the eternal city. Worth a visit

This church has beautiful mosaics and a stunning gold ceiling! It's in a great neighborhood as well. Perfect for a nice lunch or gelato after taking in the beautiful of the art!

My family stayed in Trastevere and loved it. What a fantastic and lovely neighborhood. The piazza of Santa Maria in Trastevere is amazing -- the buskers there were one of our kids favorite parts of Rome. I went inside the church and it was lovely.

Lots of gold on the lovely ceiling. While the church is nice, in Rome standards it is not THAT impressive. You may want to drop by while you wander around in the must-see area of Trastevere.

We actually find this church and it's neighborhood to be the most intimate, beautiful and surprising of all the fabulous churches in Rome! The golden mosaic work is stunning and intricately detailed...it glows inside the dimly lit church and stands out against the lit candles. A photographers dream and a peaceful place to contemplate the world and all its blessings.... More

The fresco art work in the church is very impressive. The piazza in front of the church itself is nice and quiet, but note huge. Also, an opportunity to take a rest after going through Trastevere.
