our guide when visiting the Vatican told us that some of the best frescoes in all of Italy were in this church and yes they were stunning! Very impressive, it's a bit off the hidden but very near the Pantheon, well worth searching for and well especially worth going to see if you visit the pantheon.

We were strolling along and saw yet another church. We opened the doors and were gobsmacked with the absolute treasure trove of statues and alters inside this church. A must see. Totally unexpected as we had never heard of this church before.

Don't miss this church. Stay under the "dome" and experience the illusion. Free guided tour is offered. the ceiling is magnificent. And they have a Saturday vigil mass.

One of the churches my wife and I had planned to see on our trip, the Church of Sant'Ignazio di Loyola did not disappoint. The church itself is absolutely beautiful, but the major piece to look for here is the trompe l'oeil dome painted by Andrea Pozzo. This was because the church ran out of money to build an actual...

The ceiling in this church is stunning - 3D +++ Well worth seeking out. Even better for being peaceful.

We had read the reviews about this church on trip advisor and it was even better!! What a beautiful church - up there with the best. Definitely find some time to visit and admire the art work - it really is beautiful. Tucked away near the Pantheon, it's worth he time!!!

We wandered in on a whim and it was magnificent. So beautiful, and music playing, and so many people praying. Still decorated for Christmas when we were there, so we got to see the AMAZING nativity scene, complete with lights and running water.

The plain exterior hides a gorgeous Baroque interior with impressive 3D frescoes. Even a "false dome". Close to Pantheon but on a quiet street. Go while the sun is shining to get the best view of the paintings. Free. Photos and quiet talking are allowed. During services portions of church are off limits. We liked it better than St Peters....

When i arrived in front of the church, I felt like I should not expect much because it looks just like a normal church. Once I got in, my expectation was blown away because the paintings inside are so fantastic. The 3-D paintings are very well created. I have never seen something like this before. In summary, this place is... More
