I and friends have been to see the three tenors twice now and this time went to the Grand Opera two weeks ago, which was excellent . However I only mark this as a 3 * as we paid £50.00 each which was £200.00 in total and discovered when we went to the toilet facilities they were a health hazard,... More

Orchestra was OK for its tiny size, Violetta was bad, Alfredo just average with rather specific voice timbre . Jermond was not that bad. Verdi music was great as always. Acoustics is very specific and does not match usual criteria to listen to a music. In general, I would not recommend to go.

Went last Friday, 17 Feb. We had seen it online before we got to Rome and really wanted to see the show. Not Botcelli obviously, but they were fantastic. Better to buy tickets at the gate from €20 bac seats, €30 middle seats to €50 front but honestly any seat is great as the voices travel and it's not a... More

What a wonderful way to spend our first evening in Rome. This beautiful little church whilst lacking the size of the more recognised Basilicas lacked none of the grandeur with its richly decorated walls and ceiling. I found sitting there listening to the extraordinary singing and musical accompaniment extremely moving. It was a perfect start to our roman adventure.

This church will always hold a special place in my heart. It was here that back in the 1960’s, I was President of the International Teen Club of Rome. We met in the basement of the church. The church sits right on the busy Via Nazionale. This is the American Episcopal Church in Rome. You can’t miss this church because... More

I had pre-booked this as part of our four day (first time) visit to Rome. We were not disappointed and I was so glad that we chose this as one of our evening entertainment highlights. The Church of St Paul within the Walls like so many of the churches in Rome was ornate and lavish. It made for a great... More

Pros:- Quartet played well,Tenors sang well, within there range, ( don't expect Placido,or Jose ), Very nice venue, and the mc was jovial,giving a welcome to the guests from the various countries in their own language and, creating an informal atmosphere. Cons:- The acoustics could have been better, seating was on cushioned pews, no heating, so very cold ( ok... More

After reading a few reviews of the small venue I decided this would be a good introduction to opera for the kids (ages 12 and 10). And what better place to see La Triviata than Rome! Considering our limited travel wardrobe, tuxedos and gowns were not in the cards. Spontaneity at its best! THE OKAY: The church is not air-conditioned... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
