You get to see four Bernini's, a Caravaggio, and a Raphael for free. And it is right off the fun Piazza del Popolo, next to the DaVinci Museum.

Came across this large church by chance as our guide book suggested it as an alternative to the St Peters Basilica. It was well worth the visit - the interior is incredible, the crowds are virtually absent and it has incredible decorations throughout.

This church is beautifully decorated for the glory of God. Many tourists visit to see the lovely dome art. The nave is usually quiet enough for reverent prayer despite tourists.

Check the opening times (we didn't!). A beautiful church with lots of interesting features (look out for skeletons). Go and see the 2 Carovaggio paintings if nothing else.

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to

There is no formal code that is policed, but the usual sensitivities should be observed - no singlets, no shorts for men, no bare shoulders, bare knees, headscarves etc.
