We liked the interior of the church, the mirror method and the baby Boys and Girls bibs inside. Free, worth taking a look, especially since the piazza is also nice.

Just across our B&B we could not miss this Basilisk. We found it to be one of the nicest, quietest religious places. Even if you are not or other religious.

The beautiful interior of the Basilica di Santa Maria delle Vigne is well worth a visit. The ceilings are covered in gorgeous paintings, so you'll spend much of your visit looking up at them (see attached photos).
