The brave attempt to go 3D on the ceiling with pictures of lofty domes while actually it's quite flat on the outside. I found it more interesting that the Sistine Chapel and more personal.

The church was very beautiful and easy to manage. There was quite a crowd, but it was comfortable to walk around and view the entire church.

The art in the church makes it a must-see. The interior is very theatrical and makes quite an impression for all visitors. The ceiling is by far the best part and should not be missed if in this part of Rome.

Rome is full of beautiful churches and Sant'Ignazio is superb. Spacious, light and bright. There is a fabulous painted ceiling which will hold your attention for quite some time. I visited just after opening and was one of three people there. It was a lovely experience.

Breathtakingly beautiful. We were there about 10am and the morning sun was beaming through the windows with the most beautiful rays! A magnificent display of art. Definitely worth your time!

There is a point in the middle of the floor, which is supposed to be the best for viewiing the ceiling. I was there on an overcast day with some bursts of light. SO I did only see the brilliance very briefly. But a fascinatingly beautiful church.

The roof, painted by Pozzo, gives the Sistine Chapel a run for its money! Don't give money to the guy on the door - I'm sure it's a scam. There are donation boxes inside. For Ignatian spiritualists, knowing the remains of Saint Aloysius Gonzaga are here, is very moving.

You have to put this 17th century church on in the middle of your path as you must get inside to fully absorb what this Church offers - it usually closes at 7PM (as any other church) but worth Googling for it just in case. The strongest points are - no fees (as any other normal church!) - wheelchair access... More
