  • Church of the Spaniards in Rome is a jewel to visit not only to the famous Temple of Bramante, but also for the splendid frescoes, primarily the exalted Christ at the column by Sebastiano del Piombo. But for a treat, a St. Anna Metterza of the son of Antoniazzo Romano Marcantonio Aquili, work recently discovered in the book by Sergio Rossi "Over the Jubilee. Painting and mercy in Rome 1300-1675.

  • Beautiful small church with an amazing view of Rome. The interior is decorated with very interesting artworks. In the courtyard you can admire the "Tempietto" by Bramante, a masterpiece of high Renaissance architecture. Definitely worth visiting!
  • Amazing view of the city, and a great piece of architecture to check out. This building frequently has rotating art exhibits inside as well. Trivia: This location was a scene in the award-winning Italian film, Le Grande Bellezza ("the great beauty"). Watch this amazing moving and then visit here.!
  • Exquisite church with some great works of art and Bramante's Tempietto in the cloister.
  • Amazing view ...but its to hot
  • A dream come true to see the Tempietto in person.

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.
