If we plan on attending Mass Sunday at St Cecilia's next July, will we be able to see the frescos as well as go underground to see Early Roman living quarter's of St. Cecilia? There was reference that tours were during the week but no mention as to whether we could visit these after or before Sunday mass. We are trying to decide where to go to Sunday mass, but only have 3 days in Rome so would like to make the most of our time. Thank you for your response and any other suggestions! :)
The beautiful fresco can be seen before 12 pm and after 2:30 pm as to go you have to ring at the nun's house and they have lunch between 12 and 2:30.
I suggest a wonderful tour which can be guided and it's also in English in Domus romanae in Palazzo Valentini . It's close to the wonderful Traiano column and Ara pacis which is a area you can't miss. Book on line the tickets 14 euros each and go 10 min before . Book a good restaurant called Matricianella close to via del Corso and 10 min walk max from piazza di Spagna. For a magnificent dinner book L' Arcangelo it 20 min walk max from via des Corso and serves amazing food all fresh and around 40 euros . It's like a step up from a trattoria ,not elegant but simple . Matricianella is a real trattoria great it's fritti and pasta. The chiesa del Cristo not far from Ara pacis is great opens at 4 pm or in the morning till 12 . Have a tour in piazza Navona but it's cafes are too much for tourists . Enjoy!
No idea..I would check Rick Steve's travel Europe. We found this church following one of his walking tours that we downloaded.
