This church is another incredible ornate example of thise churches that are all over Rome.The main item of interest is the dome. As there was not enough money for a dome to be built then a painting was done to make it look like there...More

The fake trick dome needs cleaning I think? Neat mirror to look at the ceiling and what a fantastic piazza outside.

It’s so nice to find yet another church and enjoy it for few minutes. Small or big, I have been fascinated with them all.

One of those hidden gems. Our guide on a segway tour pointed this church out and we returned later to experience it. The artwork is stunning and (while not giving away any spoilers) the ceiling is magnificent. In my opinion on par with the Sistine...More

I more of a more modern church art fan (like 200 years old or so), and the ceiling painting in this church is simply amazing, it looks 3 dimensional and very special.

We just happen upon this church after leaving the Pantheon on our way to the Trevi Fountain and I was more impressed with this church than the Pantheon. I actually felt my pores raised, there was so much to take in. Best of all there...More

Even if you are not religious which I am not, this church's mastery and beauty will stun you. I was stopped however for not having a cover on my shoulders. So much for moving into the modern era.

One of the largest churchs in Rome, and easily one of the most beautiful ones. This comes from the overall impression, which is late Barock and very nicely done, but mainly from the georgeous fresco painting on the ceiling. It describes scenes of the life...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 neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
