Santa Francesca Romana is an old 10th century church. Its Bell Tower can be seen from afar and it's worth seeing from up close. There are some lovely art works inside and the architecture is rather good.

This church is located near the Roman forum and dates from the 10th century. It has undergone changes and additions over the centuries but the decoration inside is less than in a lot of other churches in Rome.
