My main reason for the visit was the 2 Caravaggio paintings, even more beautiful in real life, amongst the other master pieces here. Well worth a visit

Although this is primarily a place of worship, the interior of the church is a stark difference to the exterior, which is quite plain and the look of an ordinary building. The interior is one of the most lavishly decorated in Rome, it has two...More

fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
