  • Stunning. It’s not overcrowded and quiet enough for prayers. The art is stunning. Not a far walk from the public transportation.

  • You would not expect it when you stand in front of the Basilica, but this is a surprisingly large and very beautiful Basilica. The Basilica is located in the Trastevere district and has a beautiful ceiling, magnificent mosaic and stained glass. Admission is free (August 2022). If you are in Trastevere, do not hesitate to visit this beautiful Basilica.
  • This beautiful church is located in the lovely Trastevere neighborhood in Rome. When strolling Trastevere stop by and take in the beauty of the church. The church like many others in Italy is impressive in every way from the sculptures to the frescos. One of the most impressive things was the light coming in through the windows to provide natural lighting. I recommend checking this out and spending a few minutes here admiring it.
