We just happened to walk in and I was so glad we did. After awhile the churches seem to blend together. However the details of this church were beautiful. The mosaics were stunning. Also nice to be out of the main tourist area.

Difficult to take in all the beauty around you. Blown away by all of the churches - but this was a sweet little treasure among the many

Located in the oldest part of Rome, this beutiful church is a must see. Having seen dozens of church's in Rome this is one of the most beautiful. We have fond family memories of this church while our beautiful daughter studied for a year in Rome in College. Not the easiest church to find but worth the effort. While in... More

Maybe you can walk by and not notice another church but this one you have to visit. The details inside are amazing, but please have a guide to explain all this. You will regret not visiting it.

Riding in the bus toward the Trastevere we asked one Roman native to tell us where is that famous minor Basilica di Santa Maria di Trastevere. She explained gladly about that place of interest and told us the station where we should have got out the bus. In one little sized Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere with the charming fountain...

Although Rome is filled with hundreds of churches, this is one that should not be missed. The gold encrusted dome is a sight that everyone should see.

This is a lovely little church with lots of vibrant decoration. The portico entrance is very interesting too with some very early Roman pieces of tombstone and whole pieces of tombs. It is all set in n understated square where you can enjoy a drink and watch the world go by. Well worth a visit for peaceful relaxing enjoyment.

The church is really beautiful and in the centre of Trastevere. It's definately worth a visit. It's a pity that beggars are are always waiting outside preying on visitors and tourists though.

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
