This is one of the most beautiful and least crowded churches I visited in all of Europe. It was a five minute walk from my hotel, and a don't miss if you're in the Coliseum area, because it's very close.

From outside our hotel we could see this Basilica, knew it was a church from the cross outside, but with a very plain exterior, what a surprise at the immense and beautiful interior. It was built on the ruins of the Baths of Diocletian, dedicated to the Blessed Virgin, Saints and Martyrs under Pope Pius IV order in 1561, with... More

This is incredible, mind blowing, ornate, huge, and interesting. Just go to several churches and you will see something great all of the time.

My approach to Rome was to wander into anything that looked interesting and I'm glad I went in here. The art was impressive and the space was inviting. Highly recommend visiting.

Beautiful work. Easy walk from our hotel. Worth seeing. Free. One of numerous basilicas to visit. They're all breath taking in their own way.

Looks much more interesting inside than what you expect from outside. The church is amazing, a real masterpiece of Michelangelo. It is a must-see in, especially after visting the Muso de therme (Bath of Diocletian) because the church is build into the old bath building. From the church small "garden" you can see the huge walls and can imagine the... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
