  • After several churches in Rome, it's hard to remember them all. But this one is worth visiting. It's placed in one of the best streets in the city, so you can't miss it.  more »
  • next to a thicket of Laurel-good luck. The present building was designed by Domenico Paganelli and Matte who began rebuilding in 1594 but was not completed until 1734 sixty years after the purchase by the Archconfraternity of Piceno. The current façade was added after the first half of the 19th century designed by Camillo Guglielmetti and is in neoclassical style with two orders. The lower one goes on the portal the coat of arms of Pope Pius IX who financed the work while on the upper floor are dedicated to our Lady of Loreto besides a bas-relief depicting the miraculous transportation of the House. The Interior has a Latin cross nave, is the masterpiece of the matte and P, but only the latter has the idea of applying the Palladian motifs with the inclusion of twenty columns jutting out inside. This solution (accompanied by robust entablature) was prompted by the need to support the weight of the double floor: on the top floor, above the ceiling of the Church, was made simultaneously with a large library. Six side chapels, to remember among the works the Addolorata di Giuseppe Ghezzi, the Virgin appearing to St Charles Borromeo de l'orbetto, the Nativity of Jesus by Pietro da Cortona. Next to the church you can admire one of the most beautiful Renaissance cloisters built around the 15th century, as well as museums, a former refectory and a closed Garden: they are part of the monumental complex of San Salvatore in Lauro, and then referring to the Pio Sodalizio dei Piceni.

  • On the site of an ancient Grove of Laurel (Laurel), since the year 1000 or shortly after on this site there is a church dedicated to the Holy Saviour. The current building was designed by the railing of the Matte version (the architect of the palazzo del Quirinale), while the 19th century façade of white travertine marble with imposing columns, Guglielmetti, great portal and high relief of the translation of the Holy House of Nazareth in Loreto (Rinaldi), marks the rededication of the Church to our Lady of Loreto, patron saint of the marches that became national church. In those years there was a Pope, Pius IX Mastai Ferretti, of which there is a beautiful marble bust in the Church. The solemn Interior has a single nave and reminiscent of the Palladian architecture, is adorned with beautiful altars (and works by Antoniazzo, Dusquenoy and a large Nativity by Pietro da Cortona), ends under the great dome and apse Baroque altar that car in a huge aura of ormolu, supported by a host of angels in white marble enhances a valuable replica of our Lady of Loreto (the black madonna with child). A visit while you go through via dei Coronari next door, is highly recommended.

  • More impressive from the exterior (architecturally) than on the interior; however, there are a handful of nice works of art.
  • The inside of this church is visually warm and beautiful, proportioned. The decorations are quite great, especially the super-realistic figures in the right side of the entrance (the bald man could even scare you!)
  • Beautiful Basilica on the stretch that connects the Vatican, Castel Sant'Angelo and Piazza Navona, at the side of Via dei Coronari. Note to preserve the relics of Padre Pio. On the side towards Via dei Coronari one of license plates of Rome, marble plaques on which was engraved in memory of the people or the flooding of the Tiber or edicts of the papal government.
  • Sooo many churches in rome. This one is not super fancy but still worth a visit if you are around the area!

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.
