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.

Walking up from the Pantheon we saw the beautiful facade of this apparently small church and were drawn through the open door. The interior was spectacular and gave a feeling of serenity and tranquility. Time to reflect, time to appreciate the art. Worth stopping in.

A unique style for Rome churches the Rococo facade is recognizable. The interior is also stylish with other architectural features. Only about 20 steps from Piazza Rotonda.

Not far from The Pantheon, you will find this interesting church. It is unusual because of its curved façade which was completed in 1735. Again, tourists do not flock to see this church. While most of the churches in Rome are dedicated to Mary, the...More

With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the

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
