What an impressive museum. The exhibits are excellent and very interesting. There are videos but some don't have English subtitles. There are many places to sit and meditate and the landscaping is lovely. A peaceful oasis in the center of Rome

Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei martiri is the last work of architectural design by Michaelangelo. It is constructed within the third century public bath of emperor Diocletian. The sacristy and the adjoining room takes us back to the fourth century. The solar system which marked the timing in Rome gives us an idea of the practical sense... More

We visited the Basilica on November 13th. The closest Metro station is Repubblica. Behind the simple entrance you will see a huge church. On the right side is a hole in the wall from which the sun can shine through and onto the meridian line. If you want to see the sundial in action you will have to come around... More

To visit this church set in the Baths of Diocletian is to engage in a fusion of cultures, Christian and Pagan. The work of Michaelangelo and others in creating this beautiful space is awesome! Quiet and cool on a summer`s day too.

Due to a rainy day, we decided to plan indoor activities to fill up our day. This was incredibly close to our hotel (great for starting out a rainy day tour) so we popped in around 10am. This place - is - HUGE. And beautiful. There is a very education section inside as well to read more about the history.... More

This was Michangelo's last designed church. It is gorgeous on the inside. It is only lit by natural lighting. The ceilings, floors, statutes, and altars are all amazing.

We came out of the Metro station on our way to another church, and could not help but notice the Baths of Diocletian, and this church, as part of them. It did not look much from the outside, but when we got inside, it was stunningly beautiful! We were very impressed with how Michaelangelo had used the red columns from... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
