  • If you take tram 8 from Piazza Venezia or in the opposite terminus is in Monteverde and get off at Piazza Sidney Sonnino you can't help noticing you. You can take bus H from Termini station and get off at Piazza Sidney Sonnino. Located in piazza Sidney Sonnino St. Chrysogonus is one of the oldest churches in Rome, its origin is older than the 499, the Church was rebuilt in 1129 and on that date there was added the Romanesque Bell Tower, then restored in 1626 by Gian Battista Sorìa by order of Cardinal Scipione Borghese, and again in 1866. The gabled façade is preceded by a large portico with four Doric columns of granite between two arches, on the top of which there is a parade of vases, eagles and Dragons of middle-class family. The Church in the nave aisles is topped by a ceiling in the middle of which there is the "Glory of Saint Chrysogonus" by Guercino, a copy because the original was stolen and sold to the British in 1808. Equip yourself with a good guide of Rome and with that, without haste, enjoy all the wonders to be found there, including the cosmatesque greatest marmari family floors of Rome.

  • After passing many times before this basilica by car, finally some time ago I visited. Truly beautiful, both the exterior of which struck me particularly the belfry, both the Interior, solemn and beautiful coffered wooden ceiling. Do not miss a visit to the underground, at a cost of 3 €, where archaeological excavations have brought to light part of the former church with medieval frescoes also quite well preserved.

  • Walked in on a silent Sunday morning: Beautiful spiritual and quiet atmosphere. i think more impressive than much churches though less well known.
  • This is yet another beautiful church. Sadly we weren't able to explore the crypt as a service was about to begin. Nevertheless, the ornate ceiling and general magnificence of the church makes this another 'must see' for ecclesiastical junkies!
  • The Church does not disappoint. The granite pillars are thousands of years old. Who is the namesake, was not clear to me. A martyr to the shining.

  • Very impressive the crypt, where is the ancient Christian Church and an old baptismal font. Worth a visit.

  • It is worth a visit for its Tower and its spectacular wooden coffered ceilings. It is not the Church most famous of Trastevere but you must not miss it.
