This place was beautiful, really took us by surprise. The ceiling is incredible. One of my favorite basilicas.

“Beautiful inside”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

If in Rome, check it out. Beautiful inside with fantastic paintings on the ceilings and some fantastic carved statues.

“Ceiling and dome incredible!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

I am certainly no art expert but the perspective painted into the ceiling and the dome (that's not a dome) is amazing. Forget the hype of the Sistine Chapel. I much preferred this ceiling

“The outside hides the beauty of the inside”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

When passing in front of this Church you must feel inclined to not to enter in it due to the appearance of it from outside. DO be assertive and get in... I bet that by the time you put your feet into it you will be amazed... tha paintings on the top and all around it will leave you staggered... pay attention to the 3-D techniques already developed in such a long time ago...

“Another church in Rome”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Rome is full of ancient churches, so this is just one of them. I liked the surroundings and just to stay outside.
