A frequented church for the locals: I've seen some of the polizia drinking the water from the well before their shift starts, and locals too before going to work. For a donation of your choice, you can take home some of the water in a...More

Another small church absolutely crammed with art and history, don't miss the miracle water, i'm not sure it works but i can't hurt to believe that it does, for a small donation you can take a small bottle away with you.

Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos,
goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross
paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the
very centre of the city. Even though it has some of
the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle
