You don't have to know that Borromini, who designed this church, was a giant in the baroque world in order to appreciate the beauty of this church. Compared with Saint Peter's and many of the other churches in Rome, San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane is...More

Didn't understand why this was so interesting at first. It's the way it was designed. It's a tiny church that looks so grand. An architect told me:it's the ceilings. Luckily he was with us and explained all and made us look at the fountains outside...More

Exquisite coffered dome created in 1646. Be sure to see the adjacent cloister, and detailed woodwork in the office. The simple crypt room down the spiral stairs is a good place to cool off on a hot day. Open only a few hours, check schedule....More

Smaller church near the Piazza Quattro Fontane, easily overlooked. It was the first solo work by Boromini and has a very charming interior with a special ceiling construction creating extra visual depth. Adjoining is a nice patio.

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
