    A little gem between the Colosseum and the baths of Caracalla, on the Caelian Hill. A monastery of camaldolese monks (with the option to purchase their products too). The Church is nice but the peculiarity are the left and right aisles with a stone Throne from archaeological museum!

    Press button next to the door is closed the entrance and clean out. Buy the souvenirs they sell lemons in the field next to the monastery in jam, wine, so even good it is.

    Gregory the great monastery is a complex of buildings on a quiet hillside not far from the Coliseum. The place is absolutely amazing in its beauty and atmosphere. If "get" in the calendar, you will see the main temple Interior also still and beautiful, free-standing Chapel.

  • +JMJ....History! History! History! wonderfully preserved in this Church. Had the blessing of staying in the guest rooms connected to this Church, March 2007. The room was very clean, had a lovely view over the Monastery gardens, very affordable. No eatery was attached, but there were plenty places to eat in the area. The Arch of Constantine is nearby. The Church is not too far from the Coliseum and many other ancient Roman sights. And, though it was a distance from St Peter's Basilica, the Metro was not too far a walk. There is much that fascinated me about this Church whose administrators are Benedictine monks. But, one above all is the preservation of the marble chair used by St Gregory the Great, 6th century Pope, responsible for sending missionaries to England. This friend of Jesus, God/Man, was a compassionate spiritual father to many, particularly the spiritually and materially poor.
  • Beautiful church with magnificent frescoes and a wonderful 13th-century Cosmatesque floor.
  • Pretty place
  • One of the places to visit
  • See it when you're in the neighborhood of the Colosseum!

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.
