On our 5th trip to Rome, we finally go the see the inside of this church. Every time we were here in the past, the church was closed. It was worth the wait. It is truly beautiful inside, as well as outside, and definitely worth a visit. You can arrive in Trastevere in the late afternoon, and walk around the... More

We loved this. after seeing the Emmanuel II statue out front, we climbed the stairs to the top and around back. That's how you get in. The images, the statues the everything was just awesome. It certainly appears as if you can do mass there. Please note I do not know if there is an elevator and it is up... More

It is a quite church and best to have a retreat or meditation to have time with God and to know yourself.

The tour guide we had for the visit to the Vatican highly recommended a visit to Trastevere. We took a cab over there and it is such a wonderful place to see. Santa Maria is one of those places that you have to visit, but check on the hours. The first time we went, it was closed. The church is... More

The main sight in Trastevere. The square in front and the church are the perfect starting point for your walk around the old neighbourhood

An interesting Church to visit if you are in the area. Some good restaurants in the streets away from the square in which the Church is located

An exceptionally exquisite Romanesque church in a wonderful neighborhood that should not be overlooked. Be sure to make at least a 1/2 day (or full day exploring the Trestevere.

i tend to like the less disturbed areas of rome, full of character, they tend to be much more interesting, trastevere is such an area and at its centre is this wonderful church, a must see in the area which is great for nightlife

Stayed at Trastevere so this church was easily rearchable. Actually pretty hard to find if you are coming towards the church from the hillside. Magnificent outlook. For some reason there were two police vans outside the church all the time. Small church. If you want to make a day trip or spend the day in Trastevere I recommend that you... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
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.
