  • The Basilica of San Camillo de Lellis left its mark in our hearts for various and excellent reasons, we had chosen another church close to them to celebrate our most beautiful day, our wedding, but we needed the clearance of the parish priest, so we went to him at here esta Basilica, once we entered we fell in love right away, built in the early twentieth century in the name of San Camillo de Lellis (protector of the sick) is in a neo-Roman style, very imposing as a structure but at the same time light in its simple lines . When Father Sergio turned on the lights, we had confirmation, we would get married there and so it was. A beautiful mass thanks also to Father Sergio, who transmits with love the faith in God, a truly unique person, few like him, if one Sunday morning you want to take a ride in the center and pass in the Sallustian area, stop to listen to a mass of his, you will get out of there lighter in the soul.

  • Dedicated to the patron saint of the sick, is a beautiful church in Ludovisi, not far from the US Embassy. Built at the beginning of the 20th century in Romanesque style, one of the last examples of when the churches seemed to churches and not of them. Wonderful interior reminiscent of medieval churches. To visit absolutely!

  • Beautiful Basilica, near the Trevi Fountain. The entrance is discreet, so it's possible I don't understand with ease. Beautiful paintings and sculptures scattered along the nave and roof of the Church. Recommend a visit.
