  • Beautifully decorated church. Well worth a peek inside. Remember to look up, the ceiling is amazing.
  • Walking down the road and almost walked passed. Went inside and found a little gem. It's good to look past the obvious sights and look for gems like this.
  • Easy to peek in heading up from Piazza Venezia en route to Trevi Fountain. Very quaint and beautiful inside.
  • Little gem off the street. Poke your head in.
  • An absolutely beautiful church - they also held few others opera chorale sessions in October!
