  • This small and pretty little church dedicated to San Cesareo is located near the Celio in St Sebastian Street within easy reach. Highlights include the numerous artefacts from the Basilica of St. John in the lateral and repurposed, also beautiful mosaics in the apse. Particular ceiling with the statue of the saint set in the center. In the basement there are ancient baths unfortunately not open.

  • Rome never ceases to amaze: I discovered this little jewel set in a magnificent location near the Celio on the occasion of a wedding (recommended as a location). The exterior is deceiving, but once you cross the threshold, a different world opens up, made up of well-guarded works of art. The only limit is the opening hours, but perhaps this helps to increase the "mystery".

  • The church is only regularly open on Saturdays, 10:00 to 16:00 and on Sunday mornings, 9:30 to 12:00 except in August. Mass is celebrated at 11:30 on Sundays and solemnities. The church is popular for weddings. This is a very attractive but rather hidden-away late 16th century church, which is struggling to justify its existence and so is not regularly open. It has an amazing collection of mediaeval Cosmatesque liturgical items, scavenged from other churches when they were remodelled.
  • Nice place
  • Beautiful church at the beginning of via Porta San Sebastiano. Built on ancient Roman Domus (perhaps of the baths). Its subterranean visitable after request to the rector of the church conceal considerable remains of mosaic floor. It was the Church of Pope Woytila when he came to Rome and saw the wedding of Virna Lisi.

  • This church, certainly little known to the most, given its rather defilated position, saw the proclamation of Cardinal Karol Wojtyła on June 26, 1967. He will return several times to this place both to celebrate mass together with other priests of Polish nationality during the short stay in Rome or he'll see it collected in moments of prayer in total solitude. This church, which dates back to the EIGHTH century was built on pre-existing Roman structures, in fact in the underground there are remains of Roman constructions. Often these private dwellings were the meeting and prayer point of the very first Christian communities.
