  • It is one of the oldest churches of Rome holders. The old building, built on Roman ruins (still visible below the monastery), was leaning against the wall of the baths of Diocletian and the Servian wall (the first wall to defend Rome). It is considered that it was built in house by Susana (Susana de Rome, Virgin Christian martyr of the 3rd century), where was martyred. According to tradition, the structure became Church around 330 ad, during the reign of the Emperor Constantine I was rebuilt by Carlo Maderno in 1603.

  • This Baroque church, built precisely between 1500 and 1600, actually has very ancient origins dating back up to 280 ad. I find it almost always closed.

  • Something has gone badly wrong here. The church was closed in 2013 "for repairs", but no work seems to be going on and the American expatriate community has been worshipping in other local churches. Is this a continuation of a late 20th century argument between the Cistercian nuns who own the church, and the Paulist Fathers who minister to the expatriates? Is anyone prepared to say?
  • Very nice exterior as the average Roman churches.
  • Beautiful looking church located in Piazza Di San Bernardo.
  • so beautiful~~~
  • Amazing Architecture. Run by the Pulists, very open and friendly. Being an English speaking Church in Rome it is very popular for Americans.

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.
