“Happy Easter 2013”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2013

Here, attending Easter 2013 services at this English-language church, we found an extremely welcoming environment, an inspiring message, and beautiful music. We were pleasantly surprised to have an even better experience than what we had anticipated based on their (already very welcoming) website. Afterward there was an opportunity to chat with fellow English speakers at a post-service gathering in the garden, while kids hunted for Easter eggs. This was a wonderful, full-hearted experience that I would recommend to anyone (especially an English speaker) who seeks to attend church in Rome.

“Didn't expected this!”

A church, but when you enter, it looks like a great cathedral. Very, very nice paintings! Visited the mass on Christmas day.

“Breath taking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2012

One of the most amazing buildings I have ever been too. Both my partner and I are not religious but both found this to be breath taking.

“Episcopalian Church in Rome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2012

Our daughter was married in this amazing Episcopalean church right in the middle of Rome. The church is stunningly beautiful, but the greatest joy was meeting Fr Austin Rios and his staff.

Everything in the church was perfect and the service was very moving.

For Episcopalians who are in Rome on a Sunday, try to find time to attend a service.

“Classical music evening!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2012

Just in case you find yourself at a loose end towards a sunday or wednesday evening then try and make it to this place for a very special musical evening. It's almost hard to miss this place (it's on the Via national towards the top end heading towards the termini) but the queue of people hanging outside at about 7:45pm does give it away. The evening is a collection of arias performed by a small but perfectly formed orchestra (look out for the double bass player, he's hillarious) and a group of pretty good singers in "authentic" costumes, the music is performed with humour and accomplishment and is in such a lovely setting that its worth the wait and is a perfect end if you've been rushed off your feet all day with sightseeing. Tickets are 30euros and the full set lasts about 1 and half hours.
Be aware that there are two queues... one is to get in, the other is to buy tickets, it is on a first come, first sit basis, so if you don't get in the line quick enough then you could find yourself towards the back.
