we almost missed visiting this basilica, having walked past it to our bus every day. As you first walk through the door it doesn't look much, but once you turn the first wall the interior was breath taking. Marble floors, carved statues, stunning paintings, it has everything. Definately worth a visit!

It is a lovely church to stop in and stroll through. The outside is simple but a nice stop on a stroll.

During our visit to Rome, we deliberately find this church as there has Masses in English. You would wonder whether it's a church from outside, once inside, you'll open your eyes wide to see the magnificent church with arts around you. In the Chapel we had attended our first Mass in Rome.

This church situated right at the front of Piazza della Republica, to me is even more beautiful than more famous churches in Rome. Designed by Michelangelo it has many beautiful paintings all over. Another item of interest is the statue of Galileo Galilee presented by the Chinese government

This church was a discovery. Not only is it a beautiful church, but it's part of the diocletian bath behind it. There was a small explanation inside the sacristie. Afterward we went to the diocletian museum

It was by chance we came across this most beautiful church while wandering around Rome in the Republica area. The exterior of the church resembles a building in ruin. However, once past the entrance you discover an absolutely magnificent church. It is very deceptive from the outside but well worth a visit. Apparently transformed from a bath house by Michaelangelo... More

Worth the walk to go and find. Its beautiful inside, with lots to see and marvel at. Its a bit away from most of the sights in Rome, but its not far from Termini Station so worth a look on your way home before going to the Station.

We came across this place by chance and as we had a Roma pass we thought we would investigate. I am so glad we did. The rooms are exquisitely decorated and preserved. The view across Rome from the top is breathtaking. Well worth having a coffee in the bar overlooking the Vatican and the river.

In the floor is a line to mark the position of the constellations in the sky. Each statue is beautifully carved. A truly holy and beautiful place.

i livo Italy. Rome is so catolic place, so many churches. I couln't pass Basilica Chruch. It's a beatifull place. Inside the church, near the altar, you can admire the paintings of the seventeenth century, praising the wonders of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. The interior, as befits a Catholic church is striking not only the height of the nave,... More
