This is the temple of Manierism, an highly criticized artistic style, which has much to say, in my opinion (think about it as the world's reaction to Michelangelo and Raffaello's genius). The place was painted by several authors, and you can clearly recognize the different...More

Just off Via Giulia this lovely 16th century Renaissance church is used for concerts. The setting is spectacular with vast frescoes (mostly restored) line the walls. The ceiling is a cast sea of carved wood. Gonfalone is used for concerts and the acoustics are excellent....More

I enjoy Gonfalone. In short, for an inexpensive price, you get a good concert usually. There are exception but it is worth a visit just to see the beautiful interior. BUT if you are like me, 21:00 (9 PM) concerts are too late. Also, they...More

The oratory was built in the middle of the 16th century as the headquarters of the Archconfraternity of the Gonfalone (Arciconfraternità del Gonfalone).

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
