OMG! Just dipped in here on the way to our meal and what a view. The ceilings are breathtaking. Very small in comparison to the cathedral like churches on other street corners but this really was spectacular with the paintings in the frescoes. Not to be missed.

A wonderful piece of architecture and history, really worth visiting - make sure you read about it in a guide book.

Filled with wonderful art. Fills the soul and the spirit! The art works are stupendous but they manage to keep the feeling holy and sacred nonetheless. Does not feel touristy at all. The frescoes are truly works of art by European masters. It is a spiritual retreast and a feast of the senses!

It is worth a trip to Rome in itself, the optical illusion ceiling defies anything else, bear in mind this was painted in the renaissance period without use of the equipment we have at our disposal today which makes the achievement all the more great.

I know there are many cathedrals in Rome and tourists might be tired of visiting them after awhile, but do not miss out on this one. The interior is intriguing and magnificent!

When I walked in, I really thought that the legs of the characters in the ceiling frescoes were sculpted, they were so lifelike

Very impressive inside. I love to look at all of the beautiful artwork on the ceilings and carved images. Worth seeing.

I could have spent all day here. Fantastic architecture and decoration. A big church but not overwhelming. This was my first visit here (out of 7 times in Rome and dozens of church visits) and I spent an hour and change, which is the bare minimum to get a taste.

Such a stunning building, a must see! All churches in Rome are free to enter and go and have a look inside. I recommend that any church you pass on your way, you pop in, as they are all beautiful!

A must visit in Rome. Near Pantheon and close to Via del Corso. Had more time to appreciate the masterpiece by Andrea Pozzo - ceiling fresco depicting St. Ignatius & his Works - than the Last Judgement by Michelangelo at Sistine Chapel. The "illusory dome" should not be missed.

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.
