    Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri

    0.25 mi from Africa
    5 reviews

    The Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels and the Martyrs, is a lovely church in regular use by the locals, located on the Piazza della Republica, just a short distance from Termini station. We spent over an hour here just listening to the choir practice.

    Julius Ceasar Pub

    This is actually a pretty chill, laid back bar. I'm only speaking of the bar area, not the B&B. They make really good kamikazee's, or any mixed drink rather. That's more their specialty than beer. It's darkly lit, and not too loud, but not quiet enough that you hear aeveryone else. There's no dancing, but there is light music playing. ...

    Piazza di Spagna

    0.82 mi from Africa
    112 reviews

    Hip plaza near the Spanish steps. Always something going on. You can buy cheap souvenirs or hire an expensive horse and carriage, so there is more than a faint whiff of the commercial. But that shouldn't be enough to spoil it.

    Borghese Gallery

    0.81 mi from Africa
    37 reviews

    There is a lot to see in the Borghese Gallery but the main reason to reserve tickets to visit is to see the unbelievable Bernini sculptures, particularly, Apollo and Daphne, and Poseidon and Persephone. The exquisite skill demonstrated in those works is amazing. The thin leaves growing from Daphne's fingers and the pliant flesh on Persphone's thigh makes it almost ...

    Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore

    0.58 mi from Africa
    58 reviews

    Visit Santa Maria Maggiore (St. Mary Major) if only to see Bernini's magnificant staircase! There are 80 churches in Rome dedicated to Mary. This is the largest and considered the most important, thus, the label "maggiore". Along with St. Peter's, St. John's and St. Paul's, this is one of four papal basilicas in Rome. Dating back to the 5th century, ...

    Go Here! Fabulous Michelangelo statue of Moses with no protective plexiglass. Put small coins in box to turn on lights to see it best. Quiet and uncrowded place to pay homage to the sculpture.

    Rome is filled with precious pieces of art history that a traveler in a hurry could overlook, and this church is one. Secreted inside is Bernini's masterwork Ecstasy of Saint Teresa, a prime example of sensual Baroque sculpture.

    This building used to be the Papal stables but is now used to house special exhibitions. We saw an incredible exhibition of the Baroque painter Caravaggio in 2010. Check the schedule to see what might be on.

    Great place to watch the sunset in Rome. The drawback is that it can get a bit crowded with all the tourists and people hawking their wares. There is an elevator from the Spagna metro stop to the top for those that might have issues climbing all the stairs. It is worth climbing up for some decent panoramas of the ...

    Palazzo del Quirinale

    Presidential palace, formerly the temporal home of the papacy when the pope still ruled the papal states. Definitely the case that the presidential court in Italian has all the trappings of monarchy. Grand and yet somehow understated.

    It's a great place to spot tourists, that Piazza Barberini. Located in an island in the middle of the street, it's located right above the Barberini Metro stop. The Fontana del Tritone e Fontana delle Api sits in its center, visible from all around. While it may be overshadowed as an attraction by the nearby Fontana di Trevi, it's still ...

    Wonderful art gallery and library in an astonishing building that also houses Galileo's academy. The entrance fee is a few euro which gives you access to wonderful art and statuary. Splendid and in a great neighbourhood in Rome.

    Piazza della Repubblica is one of Rome's grand sights if you're traveling by car, much like how PIazza Venezia wows newcomers to the Eternal City. It's not surrounded by tourists and there's a beautiful fountain in the center. The architecture around the Fontana delle Naiadi is equally beautiful, especially at night when the place is dramatically illuminated.

    I feel kind of weird saying this place is beautiful, but in a way it truly is - the bones are displayed in such unique, intricate patterns that it almost feels like art. Then you realize exactly what you're looking at and it becomes a little creepy. I thought the Crypt of the Leg Bones and Thigh Bones (real name) ...

    Quattro Fontane

    These four fountains on the corners of an intersection in the Quirinale is one of the many small pleasures to be discovered while walking in Rome. Not really worth the trip on their own, but if you go to the intersection, you will be next to Boromini's church San Carlino, which is well worth the trip.

    Near Termini, a visit here was the perfect choice for me on a cool rainy Roman day. Wow was I pleasantly surprised! Not only do they have TWO amazing Greek bronzes (really rare, and I was disappointed that the Boxer was at the Met in NYC during my visit) but they also have an eye-opening collection of Roman mosaics. The ...
