  • Happened to come across this Church on my walk towards the Colesseum. All the beauty with none of the tourists. I sat by myself amidst the beauty of architecture and faith.  more »

  • Lovely place. 6th century mosaic is incredible. Church is open till at least 6 pm.
  • The church should be open daily from 10:00 to 13:00, and 15:00 to 18:00. If you find the main entrance closed, try the old monastery entrance round the corner to the right. The same times apply to the crib. The crypt may be visited, but only on prior notice. The "Temple of Romulus" is only accessible on paying the entrance fee for the Forum and Palatine archaeological site. It used to be the entrance foyer of the church, for centuries.
  • This building looks good but it is rebuilding so not a lot to see
  • A beautiful basilica in the midst of the Forum. Incredible mosaics.
  • Early Christian church built in 6th century on top of earlier roman structures - one the basilica dedicated to emperor Romulus who was designated a god other the library of the forum of vespasian. Temple of Romulus is vestibule of Church and well preserved. 6th century mosaics in apse depict second coming of Christ.
