Top ways to experience Santa Maria della Scala and nearby attractions

The area
Neighborhood: Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.

Our guide from St. Peters Basilica tour recommended seeing this church, and I'm glad she did! This church has the "Holy Steps" that Jesus walked up and it's an incredible experience to go here.

Charming little church, quiet and not as much visited as some of the other churches in Rome. Famous for a painting by Cavalier d'Arpino (In my opinion not worth the trip). But the church has a lovely altar and for some odd reason specializes in chandelier decoration. Worth a trip inside if you're into churches and happen to be in the neighbourhood of Trastevere.

This is a 17th-century baroque monument which belongs to the Discalced Carmelite order of nuns. The interior contains works by Caravaggio and his pupils. There's also a pharmacological oddity in the annexes associated with the building: They include a modern pharmacy as well as a room devoted to arcane jars and herbal remedies that haven't changed very much since the 18th century.

Like so many of the cathedrals in Rome, this one is awe inspiring. I particularly was fascinated with the ceilings and the workmanship throughout.

Love this place. I rent an apartment just around the corner and started to come here and meditate years ago. I trying to make mass here in the evenings and it is well worth it, even if you aren't Catholic or in the protesting phase of your life etc... it is a nice place to visit and sit among the calm. If you are in Trastevere I would say it is worth it to go and take a look, however with all of the churches in Rome, I would not make a special visit. You will not be disappointed in the vistas here...

This is now a museum, it was once an important public hospital dedicated to caring for abandoned children, the poor, the sick, and pilgrims.

Quite a plain exterior (by Roman standards) does nothing to hint of the 'eye candy' within!

Inside you are immediately drawn to the over elaborate alter space backed with murals and columns, with its surrounding arch adorned with 14 Chandeliers. More Chandeliers also adorn the abutting alcoves. Add into this mix exquisitely carved architraves and friezes framing more paintings and you have one of the most ornate small churches we've visited. Another Gem!

This is in a nice area if rome off the beaten track of the main area where all the tourists go. It’s a small church with a simple facade but lovely at night. A great place to rest and have some gelato and take in the sites.
