A minor bascilica run by the Augustine order, this church stands at the north gate of the city, making it one of the first stops for pilgrims entering Rome. Multiple architects for this combination Renaissance & Baroque church included Bramante and Bernini. So besides the...More

This church has a lot of famous artwork. Most people probably go here for the Caravaggios but there are more paintings. It can be quite busy, but when we visited the church in the late afternoon is was remarkably quiet.

We loved this Church because of the quality of the art within. There are works by Raphael, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Caravaggio, Alessandro Algardi, Pinturicchio, Andrea Bregno, Guillaume de Marcillat and Donato Bramante. Two of my favourites are the Conversion of Saint Paul and the Crucifixion...More

I was on the hunt for Caravaggio paintings which bought me to this church as there are two. Chirch itself is beautiful. Because of the presence of the Caravaggio, it is very busy and often packed with tourists. Beautiful art work is everywhere!!

The church is currently being renovated but what’s assessable is beautiful. I came for the caravaggios but loved it all and you get to see such fine works without the crowds and for free. Do take 2 euros as you need to see the Caravaggios...More

You get to see four Bernini's, a Caravaggio, and a Raphael for free. And it is right off the fun Piazza del Popolo, next to the DaVinci Museum.

Came across this large church by chance as our guide book suggested it as an alternative to the St Peters Basilica. It was well worth the visit - the interior is incredible, the crowds are virtually absent and it has incredible decorations throughout.

This church - to which the entrance is not particularly obvious - is absolutely amazing. Fabulous art by Bellini and Caravaggio inside. It's very welcoming unlike, for example, St Peter's and an additional plus point is that it's cool on a hot day. Don't miss...More

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to

There is no formal code that is policed, but the usual sensitivities should be observed - no singlets, no shorts for men, no bare shoulders, bare knees, headscarves etc.
