The church is just a truly beautiful piece of history and architecture. One of the many gifts that. Roma is so fortunate to have and we are fortunate to see. Mosaics, paintings and sculptures are breathtaking!

So typical of the wonders of Rome...this important church is tucked away on a side street. You wouldn't know of the fabulous Byzantine gold tinged mosaics without reading the guide books, and even then, you'd miss them if you didn't drop a Euro in the slot to turn on the ceiling lights. But then.......amazing.

This church features mosaics, both in the main apse and in a small chapel that are absolutely wonderful (be sure someone has inserted a euro for lighting!) . The fact that mosaics don't bear any marks of time just casts you back to the 5th, 8th or 11th century when they were made. I've been to Rome many times, and... More

We came across this basilica by accident, and decided to have a wander around it, are we glad we did, you bet we are, it is stunning once inside, as many others have said the mosaics are to behold. The artwork that surrounds the alter's is beautiful, be sure to light a candle in memory of loved one's lost, and... More

The best Cathedral Iv been to so far ! Do not miss it. Very arty. Carry your cameras to capture every moment. A must go place ! Carry food with you as the restaurants around are slightly expensive.

Loved the stained glass, the beautiful architecture and the serenity of the building. Remember to light a candle and have a quiet moment.

The beauty of this church was unexpected. The mosaics are amazing. Of all the churches we visited, this was probably my favorite.

Based on the high ranking on Trip Advisor and that it was on the way from our hotel to St. John Lateran, we decided to stop into St. Prassede and check it out. The reviews were right. It is a beautiful old church and had many very interesting parts to it. It dates back to the 800's and is beautiful... More

The church doesn't justify it's TA hype. The mosaics are ok, not spectacular. Some are naive. The church is old and exudes a calmness that is soothing. Worth a visit, but not more
