This is one of the 4 papal basilicas of Rome and is awe inspiring to behold. The main facade is colourful and impressive and the interior is magnificent. Most people just go to St Peter's. Much fewer people come here. No long queues. Allow time...More

While I heard that St. Peter's Basilica is amazing, my heart went more for St. Paul's Basilica. Personally for me, it's super gorgeous inside. Every chapel is different - even the architectural side. The Basilica is surrounded by garden what is unusual, and you may...More

Important to see this Basilica a bit outside of central Rome. The side chapels around the apse are beautiful.

This is a bit out but worth going. We have been several times. I would not plan to eat in the area. It is easily accessible by both bus and metro. The mosaics and garden are beautiful. They also have a cafeteria for snack and...More

It is a bit far from the center so it is less crowded but no less nicer than any of the other major basilicas. Every one is different and every one has distinct features and beauty. In this case, you will just remember forever the...More

There are four major basilicas of the Catholic Church: 3 are in Rome and the 4th is in Vatican City. They are also designated Papal basilicas: St. Peter’s, St. John Lateran, St. Mary Major, and St. Paul Outside the Walls. Wouldn't it be great to...More
