  • To escape the mass of tourists visiting the Vatican, I found this little church in one of the side streets off the Plaza, even in Trastevere. Is small and hidden, but your simplicity is deceptive: the frescoes on its walls are magnificent and your roof all worked in gold-painted cutouts are a great discovery! And virtually no tourists, that is, a real find!!

  • This beautiful church offers Mass in English at 10am on Sundays. There is also a priest listening to confessions. It is located just off the colonnade (down the left street as you face St. Peter's). T...  more »
  • Eclipsed by the nearby St Peter's basilica and from lungotevere. But a visit worth if applicable.

  • +JMJ...When in Rome on pilgrimage, 2000 to 2009, this Church was one for regular devotional visitation to join the locals to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet and the Stations of the Cross at the 3 o'clock hour. Tremendously spiritually uplifting being united with many who I couldn't speak to because I don't speak Italian, but who I could unit in prayer because of the language of love of God and neighbor. And, as with many of the Churches that I would visit (as many as my feet and legs would take me to each day!) there is found in this Church artistic treasures which will not be found anywhere else! A joy to visit for personal devotions, to join others or to just take in all the beautiful artwork.
  • This is a very beautiful church very close to St. Peter's adorned with Renaissance frescoes and statuary. It also includes a niche featuring a large portrait of the late Pope John Paul II. We attended a Mass in Polish (4pm local time, Sunday) and wondered if the church had a special meaning for "Saint John Paul the Great" during his life. Worth a visit for certain.
  • We attended 10AM mass at Santa Maria in Sassia on 9/6/15. Father Geno Sylva conducted the mass and gave a terrific homily. The church is located just a couple of blocks from St. Peter's Square. On this Sunday we made the very short walk to St. Peter's and prayed the Angelus with Pope Francis along with thousands of other pilgrims afterwards. This made for a wonderful and holy experience.
  • Great Place. Must see.
  • beautiful church and friendly people

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.
