Any mosque can be beautiful but what makes this one special is the imam (an Al-Azhar graduate from Egypt) who greeted me outside the mosque and offered for me to pray in the main hall as well as to give a historic narration of the...More

This mosque is the work of the Postmodernist Italian architect Paolo Porthogesi. It was inaugurated in 1974 as the Great Mosque and Islamic Cultural Center in Rome. I believe building a mosque in Rome was quite controversial and required the blessing of the pope. Politically...More

Reading about this place of tripadvisor and wikipedia encouraged me to go visit for an hour or so. Its design and shapes are interesting, columns are like trees/stems. Artwork inside is special really. If you are driving, it is about 10-15 minutes from city centre.

It's quite far from the city. The building itself is interesting. But honestly there in not much to see since the Mosque is closed to visitors. Perhaps might be more interesting on a Friday when its open for prayer.

Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour
of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries
away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s
palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty
of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for
last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as
such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has
several great sporting clubs known for tennis and
