We had some time to walk in the station area, so we took a walk to this church. The inside is very beautiful, silent, with music playing without being disturbing. There was the possibility to take some pictures, but I'd suggest to keep the noises from the camera low.

This needs to be seen along with the adjoining baths to appreciate the skill Michelangelo used in transforming the space into a church. The size is impressive! Very beautiful. Be advised no photos.

One of the best things about this church is the downloadable guide. It was $2 from the app store and completely worth it at twice the price. Without a good guide, you are left in most churches bumbling around and just looking at old stuff. This church has so many cool things to see that I was glad to have... More

When you walk into this Basilic, you will not expecting to find all that inside. From outside you will think that it is not worth a visit, but when you walk inside you will be happy and surprised. Has a lot to see and is very well kept. It is amazing how all this survived in hundreds of years. It... More

My absolute favourite basilica of our trip! From the outside there is no hint of the grand, ornate and stunning church within!! Far too much to write in one review but when you consider that the original building was part of the ancient Roman Diocletian bath-house it is mind-blowing! A visit to the Museo which is a part of the... More

Massive, gorgeous amazing art and architecture. Rent the audio guide - definitely enhances the visuals with the commentary. While ther, a beautiful a capella version of Ubi Caritas was playing really softly in the background which further enhanced the visit.

A fantastic Basilica where tranquillity is the essence. The art work and the church environment is unspoilt by tourists. A truly spiritual place.

We stumbled upon this church by accident and what an amazing find! Totally blown away with what's inside. It holds the Meridian time line and various other amazing items. This is a must see when in Rome.

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.
