  • Dime a dozen Roman Church (Mainly Renaissance, I believe). This means it would be hardly worth the 15 minutes trouble in Rome, but in any American city it would be worth planning half a day around. This church though is elevated up even from there by a middle of the pack Caravaggio (again the relativity thing: worth building a fifty million dollar museum around the painting in other cities, and yet in Rome merely worth popping in for if you find you're walking by it, but don't sweat it). Nevertheless, for all my off-the-cuff casualness, it's kind of a gorgeous painting (check out those dirty feet, the shoulders...) and it's a three minutes walk from either Piazza Navona or, more to the point, The Church of St. Louis of the French (San Luigi dei Francesi) which holds three more Caravaggio masterpieces. And, if you can set aside that perhaps just recently you've been in nine churches, 4 prettier, 3 about the same, and 2 not quite so nice, and instead trick your mind into this being the only church you have ever seen, the beauties of San'Agostino are capable of burning ice out of your heart.
  • Mine is a review of the church, not the nearby cafe. St Eustace is a nice little church of the late baroque period. There is a nice collection of late paintings along the side altars as well. I'm not sure I would make a trip here just for this church, but it's worth a visit if you're passing by.
  • Small and beautiful Basilica between the Pantheon and Piazza Navona, behind Palazzo Madama, seat of the Senate. Noteworthy is the crib that according to tradition is one of the cribs that are annually during the Christmas season.
  • This place has terrible customer service. The employees made a huge mistake and did not want to fix it. THEY ARE NOT A TOURIST FRIENDLY BUSINESS. The coffee was dreadful. Avoid this place. There are much better options than this place in Rome.
  • Lovely....♡
