  • 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.
