I was told this is not always open, and so make sure you visit while in the Roman Forum. Wow, what a recommendation. Magnificent ancient frescos' and colour, and so much more.

If you come to Rome for the churches, don't miss this one, flattened by an earthquake in the 9th century and now restored brilliantly as the 'Sistine Chapel of the Middle Ages'. The presentation is inspired - you feel as if you have entered a...More
Many decades ago I was born few meters from this Church and I visited Foro Romano At least 50 Times. I was astonished discovering this medieval Church with exceptional frescos recently restaured. Absolutely unique. Use guide and explaination to understand all. A miracle!

Honestly, I had not heard about this church before I got to the Palatine Hill, but I am so glad I saw it. The placed evoked deep feelings knowing that this is where Christians prayed over 1500 years ago. The faded wall paintings are beautiful....More
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here. Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its ancient beginnings to its 21st century transformations. Whether it’s those historical playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this
neighbourhood packs a cultural punch and then some. Screaming scooters, battling buses, crazy cars, and lots of foot traffic converge in the area all day long. By dusk, a different vibe emerges as the neighbourhood quiets down. Don't be surprised if you find yourself passing through the Piazza Venezia at least once a day, since it’s the most direct way to get from one side of town to another.
