Amazing, I think from the outside it is quite misleading. However once inside it is magnificent, architecturally beautiful with magnificent frescoes and a massive expanse of space. You must visit this one.

I love churches for what they are beautiful pieces of architecture, you never know what to expect when you enter, not the religious element. However, the beauty and wonderment of the art work contained within its walls is a sight to behold. I walked round open mouthed in awe and have to admit the emotion of the place got to... More

I just stumbled upon this while searching for something else and noticed plenty of people going inside so thought I'd take a peek. Wow, it is a spectacular cathedral and so worth the time to stop in. Breathtaking.

But you could say that about almost every other church in Rome. The size and decoration of these Baroque churches will boggle your mind. The money spent probably could have been put to better use -- but the results are amazing to behold.

Visited many churches and was glad this one had staff and volunteers available to ask questions.i do wish that the churches could make rest rooms available. I was pleased to be able to light candles for my special intentions!

I am amazed at this church. When it was built in the 17th century, people were upset at the prospect of paying for another church in Rome. The Jesuits, who resided there, had one of their own priests, a mathematician Orazio Grassi, design the church. Andrea Pozzo, a Jesuit lay brother, painted the ceiling frescoes which are simply unbelievable. He... More

While not on the beaten path for most tourists, this was one of the simply beautiful churches that should not be missed. No large crowds, magnificent interior in an understated way, quiet music in the background, and beautiful sculptures. Our guide who was an art historian explained so much that was unique about this church. We had been in many... More

I liked the way the chapels had signs explaining the statues and their significance--in Italian and in English! The ceiling art by Anrea Pozzo was magnificent.

I chanced upon this church while walking to the Pantheon. The exterior looked magnificent enough, so just took the chance and went in. And was I glad. The interior of this church is amazing, just so theatrical and alive. It's rich. Gilded, ornamental alters, stucco reliefs and colored marble and most grandiose of all the frescoes that cover the entire... 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.
