  • Built in honor of Saint Charles Borromeo, known as "ai Catinari" due to the presence of the shops of Carr. The Church, one of the first examples of Baroque in Rome, is characterized by a travertine façade and by an imposing dome. Inside, there are some important works such as the "s. Carlo Borromeo in procession with the Holy Nail" by Pietro da Cortona, the "St. Carlo Borromeo praying" by Guido Reni, a bronze Crucifix of Algardi and Christ derided "by Cavalier d'arpino.

  • This rather large church's interior is dominated by yellow hues and beautiful art works. The acoustics in the church was lovely. Well worth a 5-10 minute visit.  more »
  • Little church. Guides tell about it, and indeed in most guidebooks about it do not write. The temple built on the site of a pre-existing ancient Church of San Biagio 12 WEAH 6th; the construction of a new temple was a religious order, whose patron is Saint Charles Borromeo (one of the heavenly patrons of Milan). His image with a classic profile has been repeated in the Interior. The Baroque decoration of the temple is impressive!

  • This is such a gem! The Capella di Musicisti on the right, close to the altar is divine. This is one of those places you never hear about, but should never miss!
  • Beautiful church with beautiful Frescoes. Shame about the safety net that prevents an ideal view of the vault and the cupula.

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.
