I, who wasn't that impressed by the Sixtine Chapel, was speechless in the Church of Sant'Ignazio di Loyola... Both the ceiling and the artefacts are to be seen.

I think it's one of the most beautiful churches I've ever visited! People should have respect while visiting and cover their shoulders and knees. Pay attention to the paintings on the ceiling, they look tridimentional

Sant' Ignazio di Loyola is a hidden away, unassuming edifice that houses the most stunning painted ceiling in in Rome. The remainder of the church is very worthy of a visit, but the ceiling is its stand-out 'blow you away' factor. The trompe l'oeil effects will have you wondering what's 2D and 3D. Wander in, it's worth it !

Just stumbled across this church & from the outside we weren't expecting anything special. However when we walked in we were pleasantly suprised by the astonishing decoration inside, with a special mention to the 'Painted Dome', which had to be used instead of an actual dome die to the church running out of money! Must see when in Rome!

By far the most spectacular ceiling of any church in Rome. The fake dome is absolutely incredible, and the main mural stunning, breathtaking... AMAZING! I cannot encourage you enough to visit this stunning place.

We wandered in here to get out of the heat of a walking tour and it was amazing to see. You could gaze at the "painted" dome forever -they couldn't build a dome as they ran out of funding! Not too far from the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain.

If for nothing else, go to just see the All in One Church piece that is located in this place. The ceiling is pretty awesome as well if the All in One Church art does not satisfy your need for art.

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.
