Tucked down a little side street is the small church of Santa Prassede (only a minor basilica, not a grand basilica like St Peters!), a stone's throw from Santa Maria Maggiore. It's not possible to visit during mass and is closed over lunchtime so plan...More
The Basilica of Saint Praxedes is one of the most beautiful churches in Rome, yet it is not in the "standard" tourist tour - it's a hidden gem in Rome.
The current church was built starting in the 9th century, and there are still outstanding...More
The unassuming small basilica is just hidden away few minutes walk from Santa Maggiore and close to Termini station. The 9th century mosaics in the apse, the apsidal arch, and the triumphal arch, and the mosaics in the tiny St.Zeno chapel are splendid. It is...More

The Basilica di Santa Prassede is pretty well hidden -- in addition to being on a small side street just down from the more well-known Santa Maria Maggiore, the entrance is actually on the side of the church, so without the sign above the door,...More

Yes it is fairly wheelchair friendly except the crypt which has stairs. The street level pavement near the entrance has a step, what I can't remember is if the gradient reduces to nil at street level. Also there is a small rounded sill at the side entrance doorway.
