  • 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. The façade is a two level mezzanine between them If this review did you like, you can read my other for Rome (and others) and I'm glad a click on: is it useful? Thanks:)

  • +JMJ. During my almost annual pilgrimage to Rome, I stopped in to pick up tickets to attend the Papal Audience and would sometime participate in the Holy Mass. Not because it was offered in American English, but because it was the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, another opportunity to hear the Word of God and to receive Jesus, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity through the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. Also, due to my interest to interact with others who were doing what I wanted to do, live in Rome, I spent one evening in St Susanna's library engaged in a Bible study with seminarians and other pilgrims (unknown to myself.) It was a meaningful and insightful, though brief, study. Also, any visit I make to the Churches of Rome are not so much to study the architecture as to admire it and the art and spirituality enhancing, images and statues therein. St Susanna has much to admire with the addition of an excavated area underneath the Church exposed for history-minded pilgrims and tourists. It is a house of worship and prayer well worth a visit.
  • This is no longer the American national church. The church was closed in 2013 "for repairs", but no work seems to be going on. As from August 2017, the American expatriate community is permanently worshipping in San Patrizio. Relationships between the Cistercian nuns, who own the church, and the Paulist Fathers, who minister to the expatriates, broke down completely.
  • Very nice exterior as the average Roman churches.
  • Beautiful looking church located in Piazza Di San Bernardo.
  • so beautiful~~~

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.
