Right around the corner from Maggiore. Absolutely amazing and different in style from the other Churches you might see in Rome. Don't miss it.

This was a great place to visit and we were blown away by the paintings, and the building. Like a lot of places in Rome you need to revisit them to appreciate them fully.

Small church with beautiful mosaics. Compared to other churches, this one doesn't get too many visitors so spend the extra Euro or two to light up the mosaics and help maintain them.

Wonderful church to visit. Very special hidden gems to discover by yourself. Very close to Santa Maria maggiore. Come here and you will appreciate it.

The unassuming entrance to this church leads you to a wonderful display of amazing mosaics. There are also other very interesting artefacts, especially the glass display cabinet showing part of the Column of Flagellation. This church is certainty worth seeing and is close by the...More

This church is close to Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. The entrance is simple but don't be misled. The interior has some most beautiful mosaics from early Christian time. Those in the little chapel of St Zeno are particularly impressive. Don't miss it.

This, like the Church of Santa Pudenziana almost opposite, houses some of the earliest, and most celebrated mosaics of early Christian times. It really is a find if like me that's what interests you.

We’d walked past this ancient basilica for several nights on our way to a little pub without even noticing it. We tried to justify this astonishing blunder by saying that, after all, it was only a nondescript side entrance. We later found the original, gigantic...More

The Basilica di Santa Prassede really doesn’t look like much from the outside but it has some great mosaic work inside. There is a little chapel dedicated to St. Zeno with mosaics from the late 13th century. The funerary chapel was built for Pope Pascal’s...More

We got in 15 minutes before it closed for the morning, so didn't really do it justice. The mosaics are famous and outstanding, but I really especially enjoyed the beautiful tile floors. The chapel of San Zeno, along the left hand aisle, is a little...More

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at

Just like the other responses here. As I recall it was 1 euro coin to light the mosaics and there was a donation box, but no fee to enter.

Yes it is fairly wheelchair friendly except the crypt which has stairs. The street level pavement near the entrance has a step, what I can't remember is if the gradient reduces to nil at street level. Also there is a small... More

Usually from 7 or 7.30am till noon, then 4 - 6. Avoid church service times (Sundays). Though you can enter and pretend to be part of the service - just don't act like a tourist!
