The church itself is a typical baroque building, but has a very interesting niche on the right side of the altar, with the seat of Saint Gregory and his bed chamber in the adjoining room. Ring the doorbell if church is not open! In the couryard one can find excellent renaissance marble tombs.

We came across this church by accident, seeing it as we walked up Mount Celio, a delightfully wooded area above the Coliseum, through which passes tram line 3. We did not manage to see the oratories, as they weren't open. However, we enjoyed the peaceful garden round to the side. In one bed, there is a small statue to Mother... More

We took the metro to Circo Massimo and enjoyed a lovely walk in the sunshine around this historical area. San Gregorio Magno is majestically located on a height presenting a wonderful perspective. It is named after Pope Gregory the Great. It is quite a large complex, comprising not only the church and monastery but also a convent and a residential... More

We made a special trek all the way to this church as I wanted to see the throne and chapels. It was suppose to open at 3:30, so we sat on the steps for an hour waiting for it to open. It never did, so we made the trek back. Was very disappointed.

Staying in Piazza Venezia / Ancient City

Neighbourhood Profile
Piazza Venezia / Ancient City
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here. Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its ancient beginnings to its 21st century transformations. Whether it’s those historical playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this neighbourhood packs a cultural punch and then some. Screaming scooters, battling buses, crazy cars, and lots of foot traffic converge in the area all day long. By dusk, a different vibe emerges as the neighbourhood quiets down. Don't be surprised if you find yourself passing through the Piazza Venezia at least once a day, since it’s the most direct way to get from one side of town to another.
