We only had one layover to go sightsee and this was the perfect choice. We went in the evening by foot from the main train station. No queue, but you have to pass through a metal detector. The art and architecture are stunning, there is...More
Very near to the Termini station this is worth a visit. It has security because of the Vatican connection but on the rainy day we went the line was very short. Bernini's tomb is surprisingly basic given all of the beautiful statues he created.
The Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore may not be on everyone's list of places to visit while in Rome, but this "hidden" gem is amazing. Upon entering your breathe is taken away and you get to observe some of the best artwork created within this...More

Saturday mass question (4 Replies)
We will be arriving in Rome on a Saturday afternoon, and staying close to Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. I was wondering if there is a vigil mass Saturday that we could attend so we can go to the Colosseum first thing Sunday morning.
