It's not the just the beauty but the science, the surprises and the vastness of the place that strikes you. (and just so you know, the dark dome - is no dome at all) :) Go, go, go!

When you go inside you have to walk with your head towards the ceiling. It is a gorgeous tromp l'oeil that you will discover step after step. You'd better to prepare some coins ie 50 c or 1 euro in your pocket as you will...More

A great idea of how "stupid" is our brain, check the paints in perspective and try to find out what is real and what is talent

We unwittingly strolled by and were beckoned into this cathedral where we experienced a concert by a wonderful German choir. What a wonderful and magical experience.

The most beautiful church I have ever seen. The paintings and history make you feel like you have travelled back in time. Worth the visit

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

The answer above is the best explanation of how to find it. It's worth searching for and it's in a lovely, relatively small plaza.
