My favorite basillica/church/site in Rome. If I have only one spot to visit in Rome, it would be this extraordinary beautiful place! Just a minute from Santa Maria Magiore, it gets overshadowed by it, but though both beautiful, this one is just WOW! But, bit tricky to find as there is only a door leading towards it. No external 'greatness'... More

I have visited hundreds of churches in Rome, ancient, old, modern, and contemporary. This small, off the beaten path is AMAZING. The mosaics of the S Zeno chapel are superb. It remains on my top ten lost of places to visit in Rome.

A very very old typical Roman church. Well worth a visit. A hidden gem near to Santa Maria Maggiore.

One of my favourite of Rome churches located near Santa Maria Maggiore. A hidden gem from the 9th century ... with amazing byzantine mosiacs. Have a seat in a pew ... and take a moment to take it all in. Beautiful ... special.

If you are going to climb this and claustrophobic, then I wouldn't bother! However I climbed it and the views of the city are breathtaking - I fell in love with Rome

The inside was much nicer than the outside would indicate. A few minutes walk from the entrance to S. M. Maggiore so why pass it up. Wonderful mosaics and artwork. Drop 1 euro in the box to light it up to fully appreciate mosaics.
