Located in a small courtyard, you'll find a beautiful church inside with a stunning altar. Glad we explored the neighborhood nearby the place we where we were staying at, the Fortyseven Hotel. This church is glamorous but holy and is tucked away in a quaint...More
What a beautiful church right round the Teatro Marcello. The real star is a gold altar that is not to be missed. Church seems to be open a lot and there was mass on Sunday when the altar especially was illuminated. A real must see...More
We were walking through the neighbourhood and stumbled across this magnificent church. Persuaded my son to go inside and were amazed by the art work and peacefulness of the church. Not overcome by tourists.
This church is located close to the Theater of Marcellus and is a relatively unknown church. I have been to this church many times, and I have rarely ever seen tourists in it. Most of the people who come in are usually local Romans. The...More
This church has a particular nice altar and a great ceiling. The side chapels are worth some attention. It's hard to review churches in Rome as most is great, though compared to each other I'd score them from bad to excellent, but compared to your...More
We happened upon this church after morning coffee in ghetto area. It doesn't look much outside, but the altar at east end is amazing! It seems to have an almost unreal depth to it... maybe due to to the perspective given by the lamps hung...More

I'm coming to the conclusion that, in the same way that the Chinese have numbers rather than names for their schools (eg School #45 in Shanghai), the Romans should have a similar system for their churches. So this could be Stunning Church #28.

This church is known for the iconic image of Mary, which dates...More
The mini-neigbourhood Ghetto holds tight to its reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly 300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the tiny area still retains its mix of tradition, community, and history. Ancient and medieval architectural design frames apartments, bakeries, shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the
pulse of the neighbourhood, keeping company on the Via del Portico d’Ottavia. The Ghetto observes the traditional Jewish Shabbat: businesses close from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
