The church of St. Athanasius of the Greeks was founded in 1583 by Gregory XIII in service of the Pontifical Greek College. The facade, completed by Martino Longhi the Elder and preceded by a short flight of steps, is flanked by two bell towers covered by domes. It is divided into two orders by a marble cornice; while the lower... More

Unexpected for Rome, which is filled with Baroque churches, is this church which is also known as Sant'Atanasio dei Greci, the National Church in Rome of Greece. It is a much simpler design inside than many churches in Rome, but the most notable difference is the use of an iconostasis, a wall separating the nave from the sanctuary. It is... More

In the via del Babuino, a few blocks from the Spanish Steps, stands a church called Sant’Atanasio. By Roman standards, it seems quite an ordinary church to all appearances: Renaissance, perhaps, of medium size, very like some others not two blocks away. A not-too-florid example of its genre.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
