  • Under Pope Clement viii was built on the site of a small wayside shrine of our Lady at the foot of a staircase and hence the name of santa Maria della Scala. Very beautiful interior and chapels where the relics of St. Teresa of Jesus to the left of the main altar. Beautiful frescos above the main altar and beautiful play of chandeliers that is located on the sides and on the main altar

  • While walking through Trastevere we came upon Santa Maria della Scala. It doesn't look like much on the outside but inside it is filled with chandeliers, just amazing. Can't say that we have ever seen...  more »
  • It is a beautiful light blue dome floral pattern from church. That fit like the death of our Lady of Caravaggio painted for the high altar of the Church is again ordered to other painters so guess if Caravaggio had become the landmarks of Trastevere.

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.
