Absolutely stunning. One of the most beautiful churches in Rome tucked away in the corner of the square. The square always has street performers too, so well worth a visit to in the evening, then sit on the fountain and watch the performers.

A beautiful church in the midst of Trastevere, a very lively neighbourhood. We were fortunate enough to sit in on a reading and choir service which was just beautiful.

Santa Maria is a minor basilica and one of the oldest churches in Rome. Situated in Trastevere on a public square by the same name, there are stunning mosaics to be seen here. Opening Hours are 7.30am to 9pm daily. Historically, it is believed a sanctuary was first originally founded here in the 3rd century by Pope Callixtus I. However,... More

This was our first stop in Trastevere. I never expected it to be so amazing. The mosaics should not be missed. It's the place where non-Romans were able to worship on the "other" side of the river. If you are in the area, make it a stop

While walking through Trastevere we stumbled across a church which from the outside looked pretty ran down & old. However we decided to take a look inside on the chance and we were left in awe by the ornate nature of the church inside. A trip to the Santa Maria and just the Trastevere area in general is a must... More

Came upon this by mistake but glad we did. A beautiful work of art that is breathtaking. I'm always amazed at how these things were built ! Today you can't get a guy to re-grout your bathtub right.

Even atheists should visit here. My partner is a man of science, and even he was impressed with the stunning mosaics inside. This is supposedly the first Christian church in Rome, and is built on the spot were oil is said to have spluttered out of the ground the day Jesus was born. Make the effort to visit when in...

We made a special trip to Trastevere to see this church, but unfortunately it was closed, so I can't speak to the inside. It looked quite old from the outside, and I was sorry not be be able to see the inside, too.

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.
