I very much enjoy visiting this church. It is tastefully decorated, whilst elaborate it is not overpowering. There are numerous amazing paintings to admire as well as the elegant architecture. I generally found the church to be a quiet and peaceful place where one can...More

A stones throw from the Pantheon and in a small Piazza dominated by restaurants you could almost miss this church if the green doors ae closed (we hadn't noticed it until the doors were actually open one day !). The almost out of place façade...More

This is located in the Piazza della Maddalena and is just steps away from the Pantheon but far enough away to not be dealing with crowds and overpriced eateries. This is our second visit, this time we were the guides for friends and family who...More

As you are wandering toward the Pantheon, wander on in to Chiesa di SMM.. The elaborate facade certainly is worth a few minutes of your time to study and imagine the craftsman creating all of it by hand.. Once inside, more to sensational work by...More

This Church has a curved Rococo (late Baroque) facade shown several times in the photographs (but beware - there are some other places shown incorrectly!). The interior is worth exploring as an excellent example of a small church building full of Counter Reformation art, commissioned...More

Beautiful baroque basilica near the Pantheon. You’ll be impressed by the beautiful paintings and stuccoed walls and ceilings. Especially artful are some 3D like paintings that even reflect perfectly the lights through the upper windows. Another gem among the churches of Rome!

Located on Piazza Della Maddalena this church is beautiful. It only takes 10 minutes to view if your in a hurry but the alter and the back wall are stunning.

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

Yes. I don’t know what the hours are, but I did get to go in there yesterday when I came back after 4:00 pm. It’s lovely. (I’m staying at a hotel across the street.)
