We were on our way to Piazza del Popolo and happened on this church. It is amazing how many beautiful churches there are in Rome. The interior has fantastic artwork. In another city this would be one of the number one sights. It is worth...More

This church was completed in 1600 and is located on Via del Corso, a short walk from Piazza del Popolo. We were passing by and saw the doors open so decided to take a closer look inside. The interior was amazing and well kept. Another...More

In just about any other city, this church would be the subject of multiple rave reviews. On the Corso, it is just another of the stunning but relatively modest churches which must once have had a very substantial following. It is something of a tragedy...More

A large Baroque church on Via del Corso, just south of Piazza del Popolo. The exterior is of travertine with some nice architectural details. The interior is based on an elliptical plan -- and there is a particularly lovely, elliptical-shaped painted ceiling. The main altar...More

This church is a real stand out in Rome, where there is a church (or two) on every corner. Skip some of the others if you must, but be sure to visit this one. Magnificent art and statuary. Every piece of art is by an...More

Chiesa di San Giacomo in Augusta is yet another beautiful church. Rome is absolutely full of churches, and particularly in this area, near the Piazza del Popolo, there are literally numerous such churches. This one is almost opposite to the Chiesa di Gesu e Maria,...More

There is no shortage of churches in Rome but this is definitely one of the best. It is on the Via del Corso and you can easily miss it which will be a mistake. It is like a museum inside and it is free.
