Chiesa di Santa Maria in Traspontina is a lovely church. Nice architecture all round. It is located in the vicinity of the Vatican's St Peter's Basilica. It is not as elaborate as St Peter's; far from it, but it would be worth going inside for...More

Nowhere as grand as the Basilica (St Peter's) in whose shadow it sits. Peek inside ,however, and you will want to stay and admire the detail, the gold, and silver icons. This is a titular Church currently protected by Archbishop Marc Ouellette ( Quebec City,...More

This is a gorgeous church en route to the money rip off vatican city. Calm, peaceful - you are even permitted to take photos. Wonderful hidden gem behind a plain doorway - overshadowed by the overhyped chrucrches further on. Definetly worth your time - in...More

Rome is full of beautiful old churches and this is one of them. It is located only meters away from St Peters and is a 'must' to visit on your way to St Peter's Square. Enter through the right hand side of the front door...More

This church is too close to S.Pietro so it's obviusly a bit underrated ! It has more than most of the people may think: Procaccini, Cavalier d'Arpino, Carlo Fontana, etc. Don't miss it after (or before) visiting S.Pietro.

Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent
souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and
pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican
and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which
acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the
souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only
business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the
tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as
