All reviews beautiful church holy stairs scala santa st john mother church important church pontius pilate bronze doors papal basilicas worth a visit peter's basilica awe inspiring audio guide vatican city trip to rome apostles pope
We were thrilled to find this church almost deserted upon our late-in-the-day weekday visit. This is the Pope's seat and the stunning embellishment reflects this importance. I thought this structure rivaled St. Peter's.
San Giovanni in Laterano looks down upon the other three papal Basilicas: St Peters, Maria Maggiore and St Pauls outside the walls, because it is an Arcibasilica, the highest ranking papal basilica of them all.
Located at the Lateran, near the San Giovanni Metro Station,...More
This place is probably, to me at least, the most beautiful church outside of St Peter's and the Vatican. Very big with majestic statues lining the central nave, each by itself a masterful work of art. The transept to the left contains a beautiful golden...More
my sister and I decided to hop down the street after visiting San Clemente, expecting a small older church. We were not prepared for what we found! This place is simply magnificent! The line was very short, admission is free and photography is allowed. this...More
Well, there's no way to know for sure but there is a cedar table in the church that is believed (and so much really relies upon "belief" at the end of the day) to be the one that Christ used at the Last Supper. Anything...More
This is one of the "major" basilicas with top quality art. About an hour to look at it. Getting there, off the beaten path, however, is best by taxi. This one is baroque, rather than renaissance, and last remodlelled by Boromini. The commission Boromini was...More
This is a hidden gem, I think. Most people come to Rome to see the Vatican and the Colosseum but this one is worth your time. Not too big or grand, but the detail and exquisite architecture will blow you away.
So much to see and learn about this place being the oldest of the four major basilicas and Rome’s official Cathedral. Walking through the huge doors, this place is impressive! Over the Papal’s Altar of the Holy Sacrament are the statues and relics of Sts....More
We stumbled upon this basilica by accident, and what a great find was it. Everything inside is amazing, a lot interesting statues, decorations and painting. The ceiling looks special and different from anything else that we have seen, a must visit.
Being the head church of the Pope, this is technically Vatican city territory despite being a bit far away.
The church is beautiful and has an amazing history you can see here. It is also relatively quiet and peaceful, giving you a good place to...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
Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.

The guidelines as I remember them, suggest dresses and covered arms, no bare arms for woman. We were there in the winter so it was not an issue. There are specific guidelines for summer attire. I would check the pertinent... More
