  • Non-Catholic church built in Rome after the unification of Italy, built in 1873. Thanks to its outstanding acoustics is used for classical concerts. Quiet, serene in the company of the "Three Tenors", accompanied by strings and piano. Really pleasant.

  • Visit at 8 o'clock at night. Why was open. While no one could. Take pictures and immediately went out. Garden staff and little peace of mind.

  • We saw a lovely opera here..., La Traviata. Very cold in the winter but very enjoyable and affordable.
  • personally, I am Jewish but this is the church my husband goes to, and it is a friendly congregation with English (and some Spanish) services and a diverse and open community. Plenty of the attendees are from other denominations originally, including a few recovering, former Roman Catholics ;-)
  • This church contains impressive and incredibly important mosaics by the pre-eminent (British) pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones, recently restored to their full colour and beauty (try to get someone to switch on the lights!). I am amazed they are not better known or publicised. A very interesting contrast of style to the (fabulous) rococo of most Roman churches.
  • Very nice atmosphere
  • Just beyond the church's small courtyard, on Via Nazionale, the auto traffic roars and crowds march along the not-over-wide sidewalk. Somehow this place seems insulated from all that. It's Medieval-looking interior, striped inner walls matching its outside tower, isn't as tricked out as the countless Catholic churches in Rome. This is a place Episcopalians put up in the 1870s, and they kept things comparatively on the down-low. Frequently used for musical performances, which are generally quite good. Not really a destination site, but worth a stop if there's music playing.

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.
