Similar to many churches in Rome the outside of Santa Maria in Trastevere is unpretentious, but the second you walk through the doors you know you have entered a very special place. My husband and I happened to stumble across this church during high mass on a Sunday morning.We ended up staying for the entire mass and it turned out... More

On a recent trip to Rome my wife and I had a list of over 10 churches we wanted to visit. Santa Maria in Trastevere was one of the first we saw. On the day we visited we had started at Campo dei Fiori, then walked to Piazza Navona, then to the Pantheon, followed by a longer walk to the... More

The mosaics in the entrance illustrate the great age of this amazing church. With a decorated ceiling and with Romanesque windows and arches one can easily feel the history of the floor plan which dates back to 340AD.....so cool! As with most churches in Rome you are expected to respect the space and have covered shoulders and legs. The high... More

With all the supremely ornate, over-the-top, overcrowded cathedrals in Rome, it's always a pleasure and a surprise to stumble on a place of worship that actually feels spiritual. I actually liked this church more than most others. No crowds. Absolutely gorgeous art. We lingered and lingered.

Always beautiful to see a Roman church! This one is in the middle of the Trastevere area, so a perfect break from all the restaurants, bars and shops. Worth a quick look at the artwork and architecture, all Roman churches are though!

Stumbled across this little gem while heading to meet up with friends for dinner. Very beautiful interior & pretty exterior. Love all the gold mosaic- reminds me of Cefalu'. Looks amazing when everything is all lit up at night.

Mesmerizing place, also if you are not religious. Do not forget to carry euro coins, as in all important churches in Rome you have to use money to switch on the light inside.

A great destination for a walk around Trastevere. The Farnesina is close by and well worth a look, the local restaurants are not bad for lunch and the church is certainly magnificent inside. A lovely square is used as a meeting place for snack by the monument.

While visiting Rome, Trastevere gives a look at more everyday Roman life. I like this neighborhood a lot for the best of the trattorias. The church is close to other tourist sites, so it is worth a visit.

With so many amazing things to see in Rome, I wouldn't put this one at the top of the list. That being said, it's a perfectly nice church to check out. They're all beautiful. We saved this one for one of the last days of a 10 day trip when we were starting to run out of ideas. It filled... More
