We were out for a walk and stumbled across this beautiful church. Inside much to my surprise was a sculpture done by Michelangelo.

A great out of the way place you must visit. No crowds and the Moses statue is just plain amazing. Don't miss this.

This is one of the ancient minor Basilicas in Rome. The exterior is not very impressive, but the interior is beautiful. The nave is flanked by pretty columns. The curved ceiling with eye-catching paintings is fantastic. Most important, do not miss the relics of the...More

This Basilica is off the beaten path but well worth the trip. Another beautiful church in Italy. Being away from most of the sites this location was not crowed at all. Here you can find the famous statue of Moses with horns. There are also...More

The tomb of Pope Julius done by Michaelangelo features his famous horned Moses. This is a must see and because the church is not a popular destination, you can visit this masterpiece without any crowds. The chains of St Peter are also the church's most...More

This is not a large church compared to others and it is not easily accessed by the long stairway from Via Cavour (your direct walking route from Termini Station), so try to drop off bags at your hotel first.

Call first to make sure. Some churches don’t even allow people in during Easter services.
