“Apotheosis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

It's not the just the beauty but the science, the surprises and the vastness of the place that strikes you. (and just so you know, the dark dome - is no dome at all) :) Go, go, go!

“Beautiful tricky ceiling!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

When you go inside you have to walk with your head towards the ceiling. It is a gorgeous tromp l'oeil that you will discover step after step. You'd better to prepare some coins ie 50 c or 1 euro in your pocket as you will appreciate both the nave and the cupola by putting a coin into the machine on the right to light up and see the details!

“Beautiful...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

I rate this church 4 instead of 5, not because it is less beautiful than others, just simply because there are too many amazing churches to see in Rome, and after seeing several in one day, they all sort of blended into one.... This church somehow for me was less memorable, but I think it may be a simple case of the sequence in which I saw them... Had I seen this one first, it would've been the most memorable one. If you want to see churches in Rome, not for a specific purpose (eg to worship a particular saint or see a particular artwork), my suggestion is to see whichever ones located conveniently for you or just random ones you stumble across! They're all amazing.

“Mindtrick”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

A great idea of how "stupid" is our brain, check the paints in perspective and try to find out what is real and what is talent
