We visited primarily because of Trip Advisor ratings. Go. You won't regret it. Only a five minute walk from the Pantheon. Pictures say more than words.

On the way to Trevi or Pantheon, take 15 minutes to experience the opulence of a 17th century church which contains the tomb of St Ignatius of Loyola. Check out the official website santignazio.gesuiti.it. The main feature of the church is the great vault fresco made by Andrea Pozzo which took 3 years to complete (refer photo). Enjoy this break...

Don't walk by this beauty without stepping inside. It's exterior is non-descript yet its interior is a work of art. Simply beautiful and worth the visit.

The paintings on the ceiling of this beautiful church make use of the architectural elements, which make the figures above you come to life in a three-dimensional like way. Simply amazing and beautiful. The funding for the project ran out and the church had to get creative about how to finish the last dome -- it's pretty cool how they... More

The incredible painted ceiling is the glory of this church. We liked the peace of the place and the provision of recorded sacred music which added to the atmosphere.

This marvelous church is a short distance from the Pantheon. From the street, the Sant'Ignazio Church is unassuming. Once inside, it is breath-taking. The three dimensional ceiling paintings are awe-inspiring works of art regardless of your religious predilections. This is what Renaissance art is all about. Of all the sights, we visited in Rome, this is among the most memorable.

While doing the Centro Storico walk, we visited the circular Church of St. Ignatius de Loyola. In this church, the fresco in the ceiling differentiates it from others. The colorful fresco depicting St. Ignatius and his works which were done by Andrea Pozzo dominated the entire church.

Found this church while walking in the area. The church is amazing and so much to admirer. I was amazed at the Temple of Christ The King display (1:200 scale) that Vincenzo Pandolfi started making at age 70 and finished it at age 98 shortly before dying. Definitely worth stopping at while in Rome.

The church of Saint Ignatius of Loyola is one of the Jesuit churches in Rome that was built to inspire fervor in those who questioned the Catholic faith after the Counter-Reformation. The artworks throughout the church do just that. The music that plays as you walk around add to the entire experience. For me, seeing the altar of Robert Bellarmine... More

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
