OK! You are in Rome and you want to visit all the "must" of the "eternal city": Colosseo, Vatican, Trevi's Fountain, Piazza di Spagna.... but please take time and visit this little but precious church, you won't be disappointed. The masterpiece is the Bernini statue of St. Teresa. The saint and the angel seems to fluctuate enveloped by the lights.... More

I have already recomendd a visit to this baroque church some years ago. Today I took a step up and joined the sermon in the morning. I am not really religious but I like the peaceful atmosphere in churces. Actually I have never joined a catholic service before though it is not that different from my church back home. One... More

Baroque magnificence from the moment you step inside. Be sure to check out The Ecstasy of S. Theresa, it was covered over when I visited for renovation so I missed out but this Bernini is a must see if possible! Its a tiny little church but well worth a visit if you want to see layers upon layers of decoration... More

This church is most famous for it's bernini sculpture 'The ecstacy of Theresa of Avila'. This was under restoration when we visited May 2015, but it didnt really detract from the beauty of it too much, and the church itself is stunning. Well worth a visit. There is also a lovely fountain across the road, which I believe was called... More

This cathedral was a delightful little jewel box. Though we were disappointed to find that the Ecstacy of Sain Theresa was under renovation (though partially visible) the rest of the church was fantastic and a great example of baroque/rococo extravagance.

The church of Santa Maria della Vittoria (free entry) was built between 1605-1620 AD located at Piazza San Bernado. It is small church but one that is considered a highlight of High Roman Baroque architecture, making it well worth a visit if you enjoy church visits during your travels. Opening hours (8.30am-12pm and 3.30-6pm). The exterior of the church is... More

I would definitely recommend a visit here for anyone travelling to Rome. It is spectacular. There is also a Church across the street... I cannot remember the name that is also worth a visit! NOTE! People seem to ask for money outside the churches with church baskets, but they do not appear to be attached to the Church, so you... More

We are admittedly bias towards Context Travel. During our two weeks in Italy, we completed approximately 15 tours (a combination of group and private) with Context in Rome, Florence, and Venice. One general suggestion for Context is to modify the description of some of the tours. Two of the tours we enjoyed focused on a specific artist or theme (e.g.... 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.
