  • Inside the Church have never been to, but next to the garden view fantastic, in a garden outside to see the whole of Rome, out of the garden and turn right, walk two minutes to the keyhole to see "a glimpse of three"

  • Interesting area and awesome view on the park next to the church. Also awesome wooden mini sculpture outside the chucrch
  • +JMJ...Having read whatever material I could find on St Dominic de Guzman, I was delighted to visit a Church which was mentioned in so many books! The antiquity of the Basilica is phenomenal, but what attracted me most of all was being able to visit this home to one of Jesus's "super star" followers. A follower of Christ Jesus who encouraged anyone he met to get to know Jesus through reading Sacred Scripture, through listening to Holy Spirit inspired preaching, and through putting into action the premier example of Jesus's mother, Blessed Mother Mary. St Dominic was totally devoted to serving Jesus and promoted an easy way for the faithful to prayerfully meditate on the life of Jesus Christ through prayerful reflection on the mysyeries of the Holy Rosary. God's Church is much more than an architectural structure filled with artifacts created by any man, but all of these material things can make one ponder the creativety of God. Add to these material things the witness of one who was a living imitation of Christ Jesus, you might just get a glimpse into your eternity. Visiting this Basilica will hopefully inspire a desire to know, love, and serve God in preparation for eternal life with Him.
  • Ancient and simple romanesque with baroque side chapels.
  • This is one of my favorite spots. Especially the park next door.
  • Beautiful church and garden

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
