This is a lovely church, we were staying in a nearby hotel: Hotel Santa Maria. It was our favourite area of Rome to wander and eat in the evening the church was open in the evening if there is a service and you can slip in afterwards! Well worth a visit

It was wonderful walking into the Piazza with the grand fountain in the centre and the highlight church with the attractive front portico. The nave is beautiful leading the vision to the altar area and crowned with a decorative ceiling. The dual line of imposing columns is most impressive. The apse area is completely overlain with gorgeous mosaics representing many... More

Santa Maria in Trastevere is a gem. Definitely add it to your list. We enjoyed the smaller churches so much more than St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican.

This church and environs is what Rome always was and, I pray, always will be. Perfection. The square offers simple food, locals gather at the church, and kids play in the fountain. I was awed by the many early Christian grave carvings mounted on the church. For me, this is where my faith began to come alive.

There tree so many wonderful churches to visit in Rome. This church is so beautiful it took my breath away. For the first time I really felt I must be in the presence of God. The cupola when lit (pay 1 Euro) just radiates a warm golden glow and the at work is stunning. St Peters is awesome but did... More

Super old church with a very cool history built on the site of one of the first Christian gathering places (someone's home). Being Rick Steve's audio guide of Trastevere with you to learn more!

My husband and I were advised to visit this part of Rome and church by our hotel and we are very pleased we did. The church is magnificent with a beautiful gold interior behind the altar which lights up if you put a few cents into the machine. The ceilings are also fantastic with a gold one near the altar...

If you visit Rome please do not forget to visit theSanta Maria in Trastevere church, it is not jus a beautiful work of art but it is surrounded by an exotic, romantic and fun collection of bars, restaurant and shops that make it a dream come true of what Rome is all about.
