It seems odd to rate a church but I think it's worthwhile to let others know, especially pilgrims to Rome, that this is a quiet and deeply spiritual place. No great art, very much not Baroque, but quiet, peaceful, unlike (sadly) too many churches in...More

Tucked away in the corner of the Piazza in Piscinula, you will find this small, but very interesting church. This church was built on the remains of the houses belonging to the family of Anici. Step inside and admire the numerous frescoes dating back to...More

Its Cosmatesque floors have not been ground down as other church's have, and it is entirely perfect in its imperfection. Tiny, wooden, sparsely decorated, with beautiful shafts...More

Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and

mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable
