San Andrea is a masterpiece of Baroque architecture. Small and nearly forgotten by tourist crowds, it is visited just by experts and students of architecture. They admire Bernini’s work, balanced between cupola, walls and pillars. Oval ground floor and scenic façade form unique building from...More

Supposedly one of Bernini's favorite of his churches. He reportedly spent his golden years sitting here contemplating mortality. It is very close to the street with the four fountains (one on each corner). The place is very small but a beauty.

This church is oval to gain place as it isn't that big. The outside is modest but the interior is amazing. Enjoy the paintwork and gold guilded statues.

Bernini's church, Sant'Andrea, is just up the street from Borromini's San Carlino, and well worth figuring out the timing to see both. Check their hours, which are a bit different. Often overlooked, this oval, centralized plan church was Bernini's favorite; he would come here to...More

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
