  • I've seen many churches in Rome in my time and this gem was the first time for me. I was the only visitor there and for an hour or so I had the place to myself. Lovely, absolutely charming.
  • Quiet church outside the tourist areas. Not worthwhile if you're limited for time or if it's out of the way
  • Just 1 word:GREAT! but it can get pretty busy so keep your personal close! If you can just leave them at your hotel or someone with closed pockets.
  • Just awesome. Even if it is only a small chance the relics here are genuine, just the possibility as awesome.
  • We stayed next to this. It lovely on the inside and there is a bit at the back which has some holy relics. Well worth a visit
