Chiesa di Santa Maria del Popolo reviews
It looks great from the outside and the overall place is picturesque by the architecture and the obelisk and the fountains, but there was no enough time to enter it. more »

It was raining outside so I spent more time than I originally planned admiring Chiesa di Santa Maria del Popolo, a treasure trove of stunning masterpieces by great masters. Caravaggio’s “Conversion..... more »
This is well worth your time and attention. Beautiful and no crowds to speak of. Services are still held and on the day we were there a wedding was about to take place so it's not always open to the public. Stunning side chapels. Awe inspiring.
What else can be added to this already amazing trip to Rome well this church in the small area where they are plentiful and interesting and beautiful enough to pay homage as an avid film fan via the Tom Hanks hit angels and demons. We could easily all draw a map and follow Mr Langdon on his questing or just generally take in the beautiful array of art emblazoned on the walls of every church in this area. We can all say one day that we should all visit Rome but until you do you will never get the level of appreciation that not even photos can make justice of with this church and surrounding ones. One word GO! Second word breath, yes breath it all in and hold that breath for as long as possible as this is truly worth that effort.
Very interesting church. Caravaggio is one of my favorites. Make sure you have 2 eur so you can light up his work.
Amazing surprise to come upon works of art that I had read about and seen in others' pictures. So casually displayed in such a holy place.
This is a beautiful church located at the Piazza Del Popolo. Inside you will find work by several famous artists. Just amazing! From the location to the inside of the church. It’s not free. The tickets are 6 euros per person.
