We visited Santa Maria in Trastevere because I really wanted to visit Trastevere and while researching I fell across the church and knew I had to go! And it was worth the time to go out to this area! It is such a beautiful church with very detailed ceilings and was very calm and peaceful walking around inside. It is... More

Very nice church, with daily Mass (Catholic) at 17h30. It is situated in the piazza of the same name, and is the center of the night life in Trastevere

It is a bit out of the way from most major attractions, but this was easily the most beautiful church I visited in Rome. The décor inside was nothing short of awe inspiring.

one of the oldest, if not the oldest, and certainly the most tranquil and beautifull Church in rome. At least in my humble opinion. Away from the beaten track and tourist crowd Trastevere and its santa Maria is a pleasant getaway. The hidden square in front and 12th century façade make the place a pittoresque backdrop and the interior of... More

This church worths a visit if walking aroung Trastevere area. It has amazing decorations and an unique floor. Is located in a pretty square with the same name "Santa Maria in Trastevere Square" , surrounded by small restaurants with outdoor seats.

My In-Laws, who are from Italy, said this was a must see and they were right, we actually chose our hotel due to proximity (Hotel Santa Maria) I think this church is more beautiful than St. Peter's, although much smaller and is gorgeous, we returned several times when returning to our hotel just to sit and take in the beauty!

This is a beautiful church in a great piazza in my favorite neighborhood in Rome. It's worth spending a little bit of time here, then spend some time in the piazza. I was not a huge fan of t he Rick Steve's Rome Guide, but his description of this church is very good.

I was so excited to visit one of only church which Jesus introducing Virgin Mary. When I arrived there, the gate was still open. So I decided to take a picture of this building from outside. Once I was ready to go in I realized that the guard was telling me to come back later. I was wondering why until... More

We weren't expecting too much from the place and we were positively surprised by not only its surroundings, but by the church itself! Surely the neighborhood adds greatly to the experience, but the church is worthy your time!!!

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.
