I had never heard of this church and never saw in the list of touring program. The church is near Spanish Steps Monet just in a few munutes of walking. In my opinion, the church is much more beautiful than Notre Damn of Paris. It is the must and worthy to pay a visit there if you are in Rome.

Well worth visiting if you like the high baroque. This recently restored basilica is easy to find on Via Del Corso. A mass of gold and marble, stunning architecture and a beautiful dome and ambulatory. One of Rome's best.

Another lovely church on Via del Corso which is worth a visit. In the chapels there are some wonderful paintings well worth the time.

The Basilica dei Santissimi Ambrogio e Carlo is a very beautiful church. There is plenty of light entering the church and the decoration of the altars is very good and elegant. The gilded ceiling is very impressive. I enjoyed seeing all the chapels.

The Basilica dei Santissimi Ambrogio e Carlo al Corso (also known as San Carlo al Corso) is a Baroque church in Rome on the Via del Corso. The church is dedicated to Saint Ambrose and Saint Charles Borromeo. The central vault is frescoed with a Fall of the Rebel Angels by Giacinto Brandi and there is a lovely altarpiece depicting Saints Ambrose and Charles Borromeo with the Virgin and Jesus. Behind the altar is a niche with a reliquary containing the heart of St Charles. Interestingly, one side chapel is dedicated to St. Olav of Norway. This is a very lovely Baroque church that is well worth a visit if you are strolling down Via del Corso. Note that as of February 2013 this church was undergoing some restoration to the front so there was some scaffolding present.
