“Michelangelo's Moses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

It's certainly a beautiful church, with the relic of St. Peter's chains, but the absolute highlight is the famous Moses by Michaelangelo. Outside of the Vatican, this is the place to appreciate how great an artist Michelangelo was - the Moses is so powerful and impressive.

“Good visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Not as well known as some of the churches and bit out of the way. But for one with an interest in Michelangelo's work this church would certainly be worth the visit.

“Make sure you see this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Whether or not you are an art fanatic be sure to see this church. Moses is a must see. Try and go early in the day or late afternoon to avoid crowds. It is worth paying to have him lit up for photo opportunities. Easily accessible by metro but you will have to climb very steep stairs or a great place to visit after the colosseum.

“Michaelangelo Moses superb.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

If you love Michaelangelo's David, then you will love Moses more. Moses is so beautiful, you will be captivated. Also of course are the chains which bound St. Peter.
