It's one of the churches in Rome. Looks really nice from the outside so we thought we should check it out from the inside. It's quite boring.

This is another church not to be missed in Rome – it sits right on the Piazza Navona. Four different architects put their hands on it to make it look the way we see the church today. In 1652, Pope Innocent X authorized Girolamo Rainaldi to start a project for the church. Starting in 1653 the famous architect Borromini designed... More

We stumbled on this by chance, it's a dominating building in the Piazza but we hadn't considered what it was. The door was open one night so we thought we'd explore and we walked into such a stunning place we were amazed it wasn't on everyones list when they visit rome. The Church was in service so this really was... More

It gives you the impression of a large church from the outside but in fact it is a small and shallow church but with unusual features and interesting spaces connected with the life of Santa'Agnese. Not a miss but if you visit Piazza Navona enter

This is a famous 17th century church, which is located in the centre of the Piazza Navona. You will not miss it when visiting Piazza Navona Square. The structure of the church is amazing, it consists of brick and limestone and is supported by massive arched vaults. Note its interior is on a Greek-Cross plan which is emphasized by the... More

Another beautiful church located in front of the Piazza Navona. A popular church visited by tourists. Originally commissioned by the Pamphili family who also had a palazzo next door. Church is original site where St. Agnes was martyred in the ancient stadium of Domitian below the church. Designed by several architects, however Borromini designed the main sacristy. The church contains... More

We visited on Thursday evening specially to see the advertised concert. When we asked it had been cancelled. The inside of the church is quite spectacular.

This church went through a bunch of the greatest renaissance architects before being completed. Located in conjunction with the private palace of a Pope it served as the family chapel ... nice job if you can get it!

Another church we entered out of curiosity. Pictures are not allowed but it's a nice place to just sit and relax and take in the amazing city of Rome.

A small church. No pictures allowed. Beautiful cupola. A quick stop to see if your are in the area. Not a must see.

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighbourhood Profile
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 drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
