  • This is huge. Seeing all the pictures of St Francis is mind blowing. It is so well laid out and maintained. It was one of my favourite Church's that I visited.  more »
  • Feel in church just going from the city via Testaccio, standing quietly in the working-class district of Trastevere. Here Bernini's late masterpiece "beatify ludovika Albert--two ecstasy" is is people have visited can be seen with at least a very solemn. Bachata was painted onto the ludovika's "Madonna and child with St. Anne", around the Angel. Light on the floor in the corner, there was a special place. Becomes obscure by natural light and I went to 4:00 PM too much, but a little to the light. Any time to go to the most beautiful looks, or someone please tell us. I think it is worth a visit take a look at the main altar and statue of St. Francis.

  • Abstract: the ecstasy of the blessed Ludovica Albertoni by Gian Lorenzo Bernini in the last chapel on the left of the Church, is my favorite work of Bernini. In it we find a religion that embraces the soul and body of the faithful, and there is a suffering and at the same time a genuine joy, alive and vibrant. However, the Church is not organized at best: afternoon opening hours are varied and diverse, there are signs that enhance the work of Bernini. In short, the complex should be better organized, but worth a visit just to one of the masterpieces of baroque sculpture.

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.
