  • Founded in 310, rebuilt in the 12th, and then after a fire in 1527. Important for its antiquities and works of art. In the pyre was saved miraculously a large crucifix, which still is the object of great veneration. The façade, a masterpiece of Carlo Fontana.

  • I was in this place, but not between, is a church which adorns one of the busiest street of Rome, at the moment you're walking to browsing the shops and surprise, this Church of centuries ago appears.

  • Just a ship but it's beautiful, frescoes in the top of the walls, altar, different details in each arc. Get closer. By the way the piety with colors

  • Amazingly beautiful church. We just happened past it en route to our hotel. We wondered why there were two armed security in constant presence both days we walked by. Inside, beautiful paintings featuring various saints and biblical scenes. Lots of candles, including a chance to light a candle for 1 Euro or 2 Euros (larger candle). Also holy water and many holy cards available to visitors. On the Sunday night of our stay in Rome we attended an opera "Concerto" in the church featuring one soprano and one baritone who sang selections from Handel, Bach, Verdi, Mozart and others. The Concerto was average in quality. No admission charge but they did ask the audience for a voluntary offering.
  • Beautiful church. They sell holy water. Gorgeous statue of Mary and Jesus.
  • It had a banner saying "Crucificolo Milagroso", but I couldn't find any signs of it inside, so that was unfortunate. However it is very peaceful inside and the art is very beautiful. It's worth the visit.
  • Peaceful, beautiful and absolutely a charming church to spend a moment or two without the teeming tourist crowds. I do not know why this place hasn't been recommended in tourist guide books, but it is definitely worth a visit if you are around this area.
  • Right off the street on the way to Trevi Foundation while coming from Piazza Venezia. Beautiful church with lovely ceiling. a good spot to sit and contemplate.

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.
