Scene from Tosca Act I

An amazing church from where the scenes were taken for Act I of Tosca - put a few euro's in the poor box and your wishes may come true!.

A small church off the usual beaten path, with an innocuous entrance. But the interior is jaw dropping. The afternoon suns streams through the high large window, and just makes the whole place golden. Come and see it!

Fabulous interior, cavernous space. Thoughtful mirrors on tables so you don't have to crane your neck to enjoy the ceiling paintings. Well worth a visit,

On Christmas Eve, we attended Mass at Sant’Andrea della Valle church, which was near our apartment. There were 7 priests on the altar; but, unfortunately, few parishioners for this service. We both cried when they sang Silent Night. It was such a lovely service. I could only think of my Mom and Dad, and how grateful I am to them... More

A beautiful church with beautiful large paintings by Mattia Preti. Very typical Baroque structure. Visit if you have the time.

Walking from one destination to the next we saw this church a couple of blocks away. We decided to make the short detour to see what the building was. We entered and it has been one of my favourite churches in Rome. It was not busy inside, but it was full of beauty. From the ceiling to the paintings and... More

Standing out in the Roman church circus requires a special claim ... here it's the vaulted ceiling that brings out the special mention. Beautiful with the obligatory dead saint in glas coffin in a side chapel ... luckily the olfactory gratification has been omitted.

We visited Sant'Andrea as part of a pilgrimage to all three sites of the opera Tosca, and the chapel which inspired the opera is still there, which makes it all the more special. We were lucky enough to be there on a Friday morning when a huge group of more than 300 people from choirs all over the US were... More

This stunning church was very close to our hotel but we had to wait for the last day of our trip to visit, and wow! inside it is fantastic, richly decorated with amazing paintings all over, there was some kind of mass going on in one of the side areas but it added to the electric atmosphere with the singing...

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
