If you ever wanted to truly experience a walk in the spaces alf an original Roman Basilica this is the place to be. Now converted into a church, you will not be able to find pools, calidarium and tepidarium as a Roman Spa required to operate. Still a very emotional walk through the volumes of history.

We went to Europe last year in October/November 2015 and had the opportunity to go to the Basilica Di Santa Maria Degli Angeli. Wow... I am still touched by the deep spiritual and holy experience I had when we went there. I have never felt such Deep Inner Peace like I did that day. As I sat down and just... More

If you are near to the Rome Termini Railway station, you should walk to the Basilica di Santa Maria deli Angeli. the outside does not portray the quality of the interior; it is one of Michelangelo's final masterpieces.

I almost missed it as from outside the building looked nothing of a basilica sort of, glad i decided to go in. This basilica is beautiful and not as busy as the rest giving plenty of opportunity to capture its beauty in the photos. Maybe because a lot people just like myself are misled by its outer looks. Definitely worth... More

My husband & spent 3 days in Rome this past September and enjoyed visiting almost a dozen churches and Basilica's while there. This was definitely a highlight...from the outside you can see it is a very old church with tons of history, but once you step inside you are immediately captured by it's beauty! Besides St.Peter's Basilica, this was definitely... More

Built into the ancient baths of Dioclesian this church is enormous inside. The ancient sundial is impressive as it disects the floor. The floor plan is unusual due to it's origins.

The outside looks like a ruin. The inside is stunning!. The marble, chapels and art is the best! Not to be missed.

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.
