The exterior of this curch might be misleading, as it makes you think it's from the Roman times. However, the inside seems to belong to a completely different church, in which the Renaissance style prevails. It has a meridian line that crosses the church, and during my visit, I had the opportunity to listen the organ playing, which was undoubtedly... More

The Italians sure have known how to recycle. These old thermal baths have gone through several reincarnations and is a Basilica. Beautiful. Used in Dan Brown book

As stated the most memorable place of our trip. Old and with so much history surrounding it. Only stumbled upon by chance due to the interesting exterior.

Just fantastic - a Christian calm in a very busy area of Rome. Fascinating time, date dial and beautiful murals all around.

We almost passed by this wonderful Basilica and are so glad we didn't. The history - the last design by Michelangelo; built over and around the Baths of Diocletian; St. Francis; the meridian line and the sculpture of Galileao make this a very worthwhile place to visit.

We came across this beautiful church early on Sunday morning just after Christmas and were lucky enough to sit through a lovely mass after exploring the church and secluded courtyard. Do not miss this.

This church is incredible! There was an exhibition going on when I was there and there was lots of amazing facts about this place. Among those is that this is the last architecture design done by Michel Angelo. It was not a new build but some sort of a renovation and Michel Angelo was in charge of resigning it. There... More

Located to the back of the train and bus station, can't miss it if you are at the edge of the sidewalk walking past the buses. Just look ahead for a large church. This is where St. Francis discovered his vocation and founded the order of St. Francis. Though close to the main termini it is actually at the foothill... More

On a recent visit to Rome my wife and I stayed in a hotel less than a 10 minute walk to this church. It is easy to find, being at the top of the Piazza della Repubblica roundabout. The church was built within some of the remains of the Diocletian Baths. The old facade of the Baths is what you... More
