Amazing Church in the hearth of Rome. Take your time to enjoy breathtaking walls, chapels and the ceiling optical illusions. The church is easily accessible from Piazza Navona nad the Pantheon.

Very nice barocque church but I saw the trompe l'oeil-coupola and then I realised it absolutely wasn't what it was cranked up to be. An ugly black/white painting in the ceiling to make believe the ceiling was higher. Very ugly done..

Something different - in addition to beautiful frescoes and artwork - this church has a fascinating "fake dome". When you stand in the right location there appears to be a dome - but in fact this is a flat ceiling. This church does not charge...More

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
