We have seen this church from the outside on our last trip in July but never saw the gate or doors open. We were in Rome again earlier this month and walked by to discover the gates and doors open. We had heard how beautiful...More

This is a beautiful church, easily missed (as there is no shortage of nice churches in Rome). However, worth a visit. The highlight for us was viewing the icon of the Virgin Mary, created in the 14th century, its original home Crete. Definitely worth a...More

A much less well known church, you'll find the hordes of tourists going to visit the near by Santa Maria Maggiore instead and passing right by this location. While that is an amazing building itself, do yourself a favor and stop in here for a...More

This church houses the famous icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour. Interesting historical links to the UK. The fact that the church is in Gothic style makes it a welcome relief from the predominant Baroque style mostly seen in Rome.

This church is not one visited by many tourists which is a shame as it is very beautiful and in many ways unique as it is a rare example of Neo Gothic architecture in Rome. Strangely it was designed by a Scottish architect called George...More

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
