We came across this church by chance on our way from the Pantheon to the Trevi Fountain. There was a small donation to enter and it was very well worth it. Inside the paintings were spectacular and it was fascinating to try to figure out...More

Looking up at the ceiling is amazing. The craftsmanship is unbelievable. When you enter the church, you really believe there is a dome, and when you get closer, you notice it's all a fake. To me, it is a perfect description of religion, but that...More

This lavishly decorated church is dedicated to Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits that played a pivotal role in preaching Catholicism to the New World. The interior of the church is luxurious, with colourful paintings and golden ornaments. A must-see when in Rome.

We visited this church as part of the Walking Tour. It has a dome which is in fact flat. There is some clever designs regarding the church and wonderful paintings on ceilings. The church is not too far from the Pantheon.

Thanks to our guide we stopped in here on her recommendation. Just wow. Unbelievable size and detail in everything from floor to ceiling. I am not remotely religious and this impressed the hell out of me. An absolute must see.

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
