I was referred to Fr John Fitzpatrick at San Silvestro in Capite and inquired whether we could get married there. We are a couple from Britain who decided Rome would be a wonderful place to marry, if it was possible. Once Fr John said yes,...More
This was a very lovely church. One of the highlights of our trip to Rome was attending Sunday mass here. They have English speaking mass at 10 am on Sunday mornings. It was an Irish priest. It was a very nice mass. The priest came...More
The chiesa itself is beautiful. It's quiet, not near all of the huge crowds. The little courtyard is so quaint and lovely.
Just inside the front door and off to the left, however, is a relic of St John the Baptist. What is reported to...More
We attended a wedding at San Silvestro in Capite and what a beautiful location it was for such an event. This church could easily be missed whilst traversing Rome's labyrinthine streets but the peaceful courtyard and exquisitely decorated interior is something else. Part of St...More

We happened to come across this church after deciding to take a detour. It has a nice facade and a lot of decoration inside and an interesting courtyard. The Church alsplo has an impressive 12th century tower. Well worth a quick visit.

There are three churches overlooking Piazza San Silvestro and this is the one...More

Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very centre of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping centre, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural
storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
