Santa Maria in Trastevere, on the other side of the Tiber River, is truly a hidden pearl among the 900 churches in Rome. It is one of the oldest churches in Rome and is the first Marian church in Rome. It is a little hard...More

This is not a church. This is a magnificent Church. In October, at 12 am, with the sun through the yellow windows you can understand a little bit more what people can do with the faith! Something divine!! Andateci verso le 12, col sole. Questa...More

I was wandering aimlessly around Trastevere when I took a wrong turn and found this basilica. Wow, what a find! Truly is one of the most beautiful churches I have visited in Italy. The golden mosaic walls above the alter are gorgeous, especially when someone...More

Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches in Rome. It is a bit off of the beaten path. I came upon this church while walking around Trastevere. During my visit, the front of the building was being renovated, however, that did not...More

Don't miss this gorgeous church or the charming neighborhood it sits within. Utterly stunning. I can't offer much more than it was a visual feast.

A lovely church located in a small piazza in a lovely area! Despite it being one of the largest structures in the Trastevere area, like it's 'lived in' surroundings, there's something quaint about this church. From the outside, just looking at its mixture of styles...More

Loved the quietness of this basilica and of the entire area across the river. It's completely different from the "known" part. If you like it quiet and romantic, go across the river.

Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and
overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible
mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable
