  • Many will miss because it is not easy to find. Located in the middle of the Roman Forums (but entry is free). The church built in the honour of St. Frances of Rome has a very nice interior. Don't forget to go down into the crypt to see the tomb of the Holy resting for eternity.

  • Once visited the Forum and/or the Coliseum, approaching this basilica that is attached to the Forum and spend a few minutes worth. Within this small basilica, it is not necessary to imagine anything, only to observe and enjoy their beauty. Floor, walls and ceiling, are authentic works of art, each square meter deserves our time. If we climbed to the altar by one of the two side staircases, we can get to a small crypt where the remains of the Saint are. The access is free, a prayer in silence we can allow the rest necessary to follow our road.

  • Santa Francesca Romana, previously known as Santa Maria Nova, is located next to the Roman Forum, not far from the Coliseum. In the 16. century, the Church was consecrated to Frances of Rome, who was canonized in 1608 (relics are in the crypt). In the middle of the ship is the rectangular Schola Cantorum of the old church, covered by beautiful mosaic. The Church houses the precious icon of the Madonna Glycophilousa ("Our Lady of tenderness"), an early 5th century icon. This church and the square it stands on has an exciting history and it is said in a legend that deals with Simon Magus (a supposedly religious leader who is mentioned in acts 8:9-24 in the Bible) and the Apostle Peter and Paul. Feel free to read a bit about this before you visit the Church, the legend tells that a marble plate bearing the imprints of the knees of the two Apostles are found on the south wall of the Church.
