My daughter really wanted to see this church because of it being featured in the Dan Brown book. The first time we tried to go, it was closed (it's open limited hours; I wish I could remember what the hours were). So we made a second trip and it was well worth the effort. Entrance is free and it doesn't... More

i didn't dislike anything about this church. It was much more than I expected. We went there as part of the Angels and Demons tour. The tour was okay to pretty good. The church was lovely.

This church is exquisite. Every where you look there is beautiful, intricate workmanship supporting great works of art. It is the home of Bernini's masterpiece 'The Ecstasy of St. Theresa'. I will never forget the experience of viewing this masterpiece in a church.

Its a small and peaceful place. Its a masterpiece. After visiting the main landmark in Rome, make sure you visit the small churches. They are so peaceful and great masterpiece.

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

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.
