This is another church that we have wanted to see for many years. It has odd opening hours - usually just Sunday morning. It is located on the Corso del Rinascimento; not far from Piazza Navona. We have gazed into the courtyard many times. The...More

Between Pantheon and Piazza Navona, close to San Luigi dei Francesi, this church is worth the visit. All the baroque effect of spatial contraction and dilatation is undisturbed by white walls, and the spiral lantern above the cupola is unmistakable in the Roma landscape.

This baroque church is designed by Francesco Borromini, rival of Bernini. Unfortunately we could not enter inside as it was closed. Worth seeing it.

This church is a little hard to find, even though it's near the Piazza Navonna. It's off the street in a courtyard. It's a beautiful example of innovative baroque architecture, with a very distinctive spiral cone that some think looks like a soft-swirl ice cream...More

My friend who is a builder loves this Borromini church. He says it's the best piece of architecture other than the Pantheon in Rome. Unfortunately for us it was closed for repair in March 2017. There was structural damage from an earthquake. You can only...More

Francesco Borromini was known as an introverted, difficult and brilliant architect, who was a foil to the more genial and popular Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Borromini is also credited for creating the first, most fully-realized and original designs for Italian Baroque churches, which were then copied...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
