Specially for art and architecture lovers. This little church, a short walk from the Quattro Fontane, and across Palazzo Quirinale, is a jewel. (Free, check opening hrs., not handicap accessible) The masterpiece of Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and considered the top expression of Barroque in Rome,...More

This comparatively small church is Gianlorenzo Bernini's contribution to the collection of Jesuit Baroque churches in Rome. It was commissioned at the height of the Baroque period as a church for the Society's novices. Bernini was sixty at the time and considered this his only...More

Bernini's church, Sant'Andrea, is just up the street from Borromini's San Carlino, and well worth figuring out the timing to see both. Check their hours, which are a bit different. Often overlooked, this oval, centralized plan church was Bernini's favorite; he would come here to...More

The small church, which was designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini in 1658, is located across the street from one of the entrances of the Quirinale Palace, the residence of the President of the Italian Republic. A short staircase and two ionic columns greet the visitor,...More

This church illustrates the plight of refugees, roughly 800,000 in Italy. The ceiling is magnificent, gold in color, intricate in design. Although the side altars are filled with wonderful art work, most of the descriptions are in Italian alone, but still impressive for the art...More

My visit here coincided with that of a middle-aged priest in full robes who spoke English with an American accent, and with him four or five young people listening to his comments on the importance of the church. Tagging along helped me to better appreciate...More

Church is small, yet very beautiful and moving. Not crowded at all. We walked down from the Church of Santa Maria della Vittoria. Note mid-day closing times for both churches.

This church is so gorgeous. We found it walking down the hill after seeing St. Teresa in Ecstasy. Oval in shape with the martyrdom of St. Matthew painted over the altar. Then a sculpture of St. Matthew ascending to heaven near the ceiling. I found...More

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
