Small gem on Tiberina

Very nice, serene church with a simple, beautiful interior. We tried to see as many small churches on our walks and this one was perfect to sit and pray.

Another beautiful church near the Jewish Ghetto. We enjoyed the church it was not as crowded as the others. You are able to prayer there without the noise.

I was just here a few weeks ago during my 2 week stay in which I visited all of the tombs of the apostles in Italy. This basilica is not hard to find as it is on the only island in the Tiber River. I took a cab here from my hotel and then walked to the Trastevere neighborhood across... More

We came across this minor Basilica of St Bartholomew on the Island, which is located on Isola Tiberina adjacent to Ponte Fabricio, on our way to Trastevere. It contains the relics of St Bartholomew the Apostle and has some lovely mosaics in the side chapels. These side chapels contain the relics of modern day martyrs of the 20th and 21st... More

Although the church might be nice in it self it is the display and information about the martyrs of newer history that is the main reason to visit this church. In the side chapels there is numerous reliquaries from martyrs of different troubling times on display. It is sectioned into different times and eras, like martyrs of Nazism, of Communism,... More

This is a beautiful small basilica on Isola Tiberina. It has lovely mosaics an side chapels, and the sarcophagus of St Bartholomew is at the main altar. BUT another, deeply moving, real reason to come here as a pilgrim is that the side chapels on each side of the basilica are filled with well marked and well explained relics and... More

We were visiting Tiber Island (Isola Tiberina) because of the island's history of being covered in marble like a boat. The Basilica is relatively small and pretty average (especially compared to other Rome sites). It was originally built by Emperor Otto in the mid-900's. Worth a quick walk-through if in the area.

Just another of oh so many beautiful Roman Basilicas. This one is in the middle of the Tiber and worth the walk on the way Trastevere.
