  • If you are in Rome on vacation, but even if you're in Rome you have to go and visit the Church of San Marcello. Nice, big, with statues that leave you really speechless. Recommended.

  • 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.
