The exterior is as drab as the interior is majestic. The cavernous space of the former Diocletian baths is a magnificent sight and makes one wonder what it must have been like to visit such places in Imperial times. It dwarves the beautiful modern art around the building. Do get here at around mid-day to see the sun transit the... More

Please dress appropriately to visit this church. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but it's beautiful inside.

Mere words escape me, it was such a breath taking place to see. The rose line and all that this place had to offer were inspriing. I would recommend it for all, except those with noisy misbehaving children. This building deserves respect not ill mannered children. Enjoy the beauty and the history. There are plenty of both.

Free entry and you can light a candle for 25c. Lots to look at, toilet can be used for 30c. Absolutely beautiful and totally worth a visit.

Set in the Diocletian baths. Biachinis meridian sundial crossing. It is free and outstanding. We had plenty of time to visit. I suspect a tour would be a good investment or iPad. Try not to miss this one there is so much to learn from this basilica.

During our 3 weeks from Lake Como to Rome, we saw many amazing churches. This one was much less ornate than most, but had a fascinating combination of religion and science. Michelangelo and Galileo are both represented! If you're there at noon you can see the sun shine through the small hole high on the wall and shine directly on... 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.
