In no way could we claim any expertise in architecture, but as we visited quite a few of the many Churches in Rome, we came to recognise what ones we liked, and those which we found less inspiring.
This one on the Via del Quiranale,...More
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
My husband really wanted to see this again because of the wonderful dome. There is essentially no sidewalk at the corner of the street so you have to be careful of the cars. The entrance of the church is the first door when coming from...More
Walking along 20 Sept St, we had our must sees, (this was not one of them, as there are so many churches in this wonder city, one has to prioritise). However, we really liked the facade of this church, that enticed us in, we are...More
San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane is a small barrocan church settled in via del Quirinale, almost 450 meters from Santa Maria della Vittoria. San Carlo, often named San Carlino because its small size, is a masterpiece designed by Francesco Borromini, an architect whose most important...More

You don't have to know that Borromini, who designed this church, was a giant in the baroque world in order to appreciate the beauty of this church. Compared with Saint Peter's and many of the other churches in Rome, San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane is...More
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
can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
