Three tips right off: 1) the sculpture was under renovation and significantly obstructed when I visited in June; 2) it's well-worth paying a couple of euros to turn on the lights; and 3) opening hours in latest edition of Rick Steves guide are incorrect. Although...More

It's a must visit place when in Rome. Do go through the war museum and use the elevator to go to the top. You will have to get a ticket which is right there and then but it's worth going right to the top.

Small church showcasing St Theresa in Ecstasy. The way the light shines thru is amazing. Here is her words in her autobiography: "I saw in his hand a long spear of gold, and at the iron's point there seemed to be a little fire. He...More

Another beautiful church, a bit out of the way, but glorious. Pretty cool pipe organ, but the true star of this church is the altar made of radiant golden rays---it is so unique! There are all kinds of sculptures around the church--I was told many...More

Beautiful beyond words. A real treasure. Allow 30 minutes to take it all in. An uncrowded church full of Bernini sculpture. For religiously minded visitors, this is a must see church. As impressive in its own way as the Pantheon.

We visited here as part of a Tour of Baroque-influenced Churches. From the outside, this Church, is, it should be said, rather un-prepossessing, but inside it's very elaborately decorated - perhaps, in our eyes, overmuch. The highlight for visitors is Bernini's very detailed creation of...More

I always wanted to visit this church especially for Bernini’s sculpture. It’s a small church but it’s gorgeous. L’estasi di Santa Teresa it’s breathtaking; even though it is under renovation, it is still beautiful

Definitely visit this beautiful church to see Barnini's masterpiece. It's a bit tricky to find as not very prominent but absolutely worth the visit. Breathtaking.

The most famous there is the sculpture Estasi di santa Teresa d'Avila by Bernini. The church is small and it located a little far from well known tourist places.

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighborhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
models while bored housewives hung out in streetside
cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the
cocktails, but the neighborhood is now home to
five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law
firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to

I support the comments from bob2bkk. I would add as the others have also stated, earlier the better so crowds are less and you cab enjoy fully.

As of May 2015, there was a lot of scaffolding & not the best view but you could see it.
