I visited here on a tour and it was breathtaking. You lose sense of depth as simple white geometric forms take over the ceiling. This church is definitely worth an 15 min walk from close-by tourist stops.

A small church with a big visual impact. The ceiling is totally amazing. I give the impression of purity with it's shades of white and the gold dove glistening in the center of the dome.

Small church, but with beautiful architecture, suggesting structural design of the ceiling. Straight columns, very beautiful.

Does not look very pretty, or striking from the outsside, but take a look inside and see the beauty of this church. Translated into Saint Charles at the Four Fountains, the church dates from 1646, and is noted for its oval dome, and altar

A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is
all about action. From early morning through the wee
hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a
never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or
take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming
gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of
hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle
are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you
