  • Now all the frescoes are under restoration. Who is interested: their reproductions are posted, pictures of torture and death. From the outside it is not visible that the church is round. The altar is located in the center of the rotunda. You can sit and think about the eternal. The church of the 5th century.

  • Very pretty and quite unique, but not worth the trip on its own. Make sure to make a walk through the surounding areas and visig other nearby basilicas along the way.  more »
  • Cool Klimacik, it is worth to join for a while, there are no crowds. Distinctive paintings depicting martyrs worth a look.

  • Santo Stefano Rotondo, is a nice church to visit as part of a promenade on Caelian Hill. Starting from the “Casina del Vignola Boccapaduli” on the other size of the hill, there is a picturesque small road going uphill, full of beautiful churches like San Gregorio, the Basilica Santi Giovanni e Paolo and Santa Maria in Domnica. on top of the hill there is also a nice park call Villa Celimontana.
  • Right now (as of 7.15.19) due to construction of the C line of the Metropolitana all of the murals are covered with safety scaffolding. You can admire the bones of the church, but it looks like a construction site.
  • Nice and airy but all the side chapels are currently closed for renovation.
  • This church was the first in Rome to have a circular design, making its architecture unique...
