Unfortunately, now the facade is going through a restoration. But inside everything is brilliant - the Cosmatesco floor, the ceiling, the mosaics in the apse, the works of Domenichino on the ceiling. This pretends to be one of the earliest churches in Rome and for sure is one of many, dedicated to Mother Mary. the campanile is also very typical,... More

It's hard to really say anything about this church that I haven't already said about almost every other church in Rome. It's a beautiful church and definitely worth stopping in to see. I was on a tour of the area that included a stop in, but not an actual tour of the church, so I only got to see part... More

We went there after visiting the Capitolini museum. Lovely walk over bridge and the square where the church was located was a lovely place for lunch. We loved the church s architecture esp the ceiling details.

One of the most famous medieval churches in Rome. There are gilded ceiling and impressive mosaic. The mosaics on the floor are made by Byzantine craftsmen.

Santa Maria in Trastevere is a treasure. Located in the piazza of the same name, this church is a hidden gem amongst the sprawling cathedrals of Rome. This church is one of the oldest, if not the oldest in Rome. Dating back to the 5th century.

In one of my favorites neighborhoods, this Church is very impressive in its style. The artwork is beautiful and different. One of my favorite places in Rome and near many restaurants and stores.

While we were interested in visiting the exterior gates were shiput. They did open when we were eating but no access afpfainnafter we had eaten. The square is a tourist attraction but not superior to other parts of the city.

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
