Nice church for quiet prayer. Nice art and architecture, but not that impressive for Italy. They only let us in the back of the church. Could not walk around.

A huge, beautiful church. We happened to be there for Saturday evening mass at around 7:00 p.m. and they had a choir. With all the ceremony, sounds and incense, it was a memorable experience.

it's a wonderful baroque church with breathtaking interior. Beatiful cealing paintings, richly golden-plated carvings. Definitely a must see.
