Just before the Campo dei Fiori, it's really worthwhile to enter free, light maybe a candle and gaze at the eerie skeleton at its entrance.

We were walking by, saw that the church was open and went in. We were immediately struck by the large, decorated Christmas tree in the rear of the church and were delighted to hear music playing; and then, realized that they were practicing for the...More

Very glad we stopped in. We lit some candles and admired the Basilica. Unlike better known churches, no crowds of tourists.

It was a hidden jewel. Unless you know exactly where it is, you can't see it. Once you get in, it is inspiring. Originally built in the 4th century was demolished and rebuilt again. Last restauration was after the bombardement of 1944. The outside is...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
