“You might walk past without noticing...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

Near the Termini, and across from the Piazza Della Republica is on of Rome' s most beautiful basilicatas. Worth the visit while stopping by the Museum of Rome and Baths of Diocletian.

“From the outside you might not realise that it is the oldest church in Rome.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

We were amazed at the sheer beauty in this low lighted Cathedral. Part of the floor has been used for astronomical observations. The lady at the souvenir desk had a wealth of information on this aspect and there was a beautifully descriptive pictured brochure on this. The hand and brilliance of Michelangelo are throughout the building.
We spent over an hour admiring the sculptures. This is definitely a must see.
The doors at the entrance are not new, but very interesting all the same.

“Amazing!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

From the outside it looks like an older church ruins that was sitting behind a fence. Once you enter you will be amazed at the beauty, architectural detail, and the size. We went in while waiting for our bus. A must see if you have time.

“Enormous Basilica made by Michelangelo using a Roman infrastructure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

Michelangelo had a genious idea using a part of the roman bath of Diocleziano to build a church that still nowadays is so big in its dimensions that it will keep the visitor astonished.... the facade has been kept in the roman style but once you are inn you have all the magnificency of a reinassance church....

“Inspiring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

The sheer size of the place is inspiring. Then to hear that the church was built in a portion of the remains of the Baths of Diocletian makes it more so. You get a sense of the majesty of the bath complex.
