IMO, much more impressive than other churches in Rome, including the older Sistine Chapel and the bigger St. Peter's Basilica. Beautiful marble adornment everywhere, and each beautifully rendered side chapel is open to visit, unlike other churches where most are gated and locked, or at...More

It's a lovely church with lots of lovely features to ogle. And it's pretty big, too. Unfortunately, we got there fairly close to closing and we did not have as much time as we would have liked. We intended to return, but alas we did...More

All though you’ll easily be occupied by the beautiful decor of this church, don’t forget to look up! The ceilings are stunning! There are many incredible sculptures that appear to be coming out of the walls, ornate alters and burial sites of famous Italians. A...More

I was on my way to the Pantheon when I stumbled on this gem. Just go! You can actually have enough quiet time to pray.

The Sant'Ignazio di Loyola is another beautiful church that is not to be missed. Close to the Pantheon, this beautiful example of Baroque architecture is easily missed due to it's rather "simple" facade. But step inside and you will discover some of Rome's most beautiful...More

Awesome stop to view beautiful architecture and church ceiling. Only concern is who i thought was a panhandler standing outside the church door trying to pass as a parishioner/volunteer, IMHO. Only make offerings inside the church.

With all the incredible sites and sounds of Rome, it's easy to skip over some of the amazing gems this city really has to offer. There are incredible pieces of artwork and sculptures in many of the 900 churches in Rome and this is one...More

With so many historic and beautiful churches, a visitor is spoiled for choice. But this is near the Pantheon, so not too far off the beaten track to visit what imo is the most awe-inspiring ceiling. Many other beauties are to be found in this...More

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
