Nice architecture on the outside and beautiful on the inside. Don’t miss the chapel to the left of the altar.

This was one of the many beautiful churches visited in Rome this month, with spectacular artwork. If you are in the area, do not miss stepping into and observe the awe inspiring artwork.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
