Just a stone throw from the Piazza Navona; you will find this delightful church. The church's most famous artwork is just inside the door: Raphael's Sibyls, painted in 1514 for Agostino Chigi, the playboy banker and first owner of the Villa Farnesina. Even if the church is closed, you can visit the beautifully harmonious cloister by Bramante, his first work... More

Built for Pope Sixtus IV della Rovere had this church built in the late part of his reign (1471-84). The most noticeable thing about it is that it contains a wonderful fresco by Raphael of four Sybils and his pupil Tomoreo Viti of the four Prophets painted in 1514. The church is great but even if you have visited enough... More

This church is a very short walk off of the Piazza Navonna. It has morning and afternoon hours so check when you'll be around. Also dress code is required. No shorts. We wanted to see Raphael's Sybils and by getting there right at 9, we basically had a private showing. Very nice otherwise too. Beautiful place to sit and take... More

Very nice little church off the main Piazza Navona trail with a lovely interior and paintings. Worth a quick look if you're in the area.

Beautiful church with some lovely paintings and frescos. We went specially to see the Raphael frescos and were not disappointed. Don't miss the cloisters next door.

Situated in a charming corner of Rome with restaurants and alimentaria nearby, this church is a pleasure (but closes promptly at 11.45 for lunch). Peaceful as it is off the beaten tourist track, you will find works by Raphael, Sangallo and Maderna. The cloister (open all day with a cafe and exhibition space) is one of Bramanti's gems and a...

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
