    Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri

    0.25 mi from Africa
    5 reviews

    Step through the unassuming entrance to this amazing church located in a building that used to house Roman baths. You will be greeted by a grand dome topped with an incredible stained glass image of the solar system. Inside, you can admire the old meridian which, until the mid 1800s, was used to set the clocks in Rome.

    Julius Ceasar Pub

    0.02 mi from Africa
    1 review

    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. ...

    Trevi Fountain

    1.0 mi from Africa
    402 reviews

    This place is always packed! But for good reason. It's kind of one of those "must sees" when in Rome. If you go at sunset, it is absolutely stunning to see the shift between day and night. It's a whole other type of gorgeous in the evening. When you go make sure you know the traditions. First have 2 pennies ...

    Capuchin Crypt

    0.71 mi from Africa
    15 reviews

    This succession of rooms below the Chiesa di Santa Maria Immacolata at the base of the Via Veneto is one of Rome's best secrets. Capuchin monks unearthed the bones of 400 or so of their brethren and created this multi-room sculpture/meditation on the ephemeral nature of our earthly existence. Seeing pelvic bones arrayed in fan shapes and vertebrae in trailing ...

    2 reviews

    Believe it or not... who would have thought about stumbling into an Irish pub... in Italy... mere blocks from the Colosseum?! It's actually a pretty spot on themed pub. And I have to say the food, the beer and the prices are right up there! It's down a little alley, but if you're in the area and looking for something ...

    Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore

    0.58 mi from Africa
    58 reviews

    In the heart of Rome sits the grand Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore where major streets converge. The huge church is a great spot to take a break, especially since it's so beautiful. Take in the beautiful mosaics and, for the love of God (literally), don't forget to look up.

    St. Peter in Chains Church (graphic, I know) houses Michelangelo's spectacular giant sculpture of Moses, which was meant to be part of Pope Julius' tomb.

    Borghese Gallery

    0.81 mi from Africa
    37 reviews

    My favorite museum in Rome. You have to book ahead usually, but it's well worth it. Situated in the Villa Borghese in the north of Rome, the Galleria Borghese has some amazing sculptures-the most stunning of which is Bernini's Apollo and Daphne, showing the moment where he is chasing her and she is turning into a tree to escape. The ...

    Quattro Fontane

    0.62 mi from Africa
    7 reviews

    My first sight of this corner was from the back of a motorino, and it crystallized the particular beauty of Rome for me. On this traffic choked four way intersection, air heavy with smog, these four incredibly elegant statues stand watch, reminding us of the layers upon layers of time the city has seen.

    2 reviews

    The only place in Rome to get some decent Indian food, Piazza Vittorio is also the Eternal City's Chinatown, as well as the site of cheap department store Mas, an essential stop for discounted cheap clothes appropriate for rehearsals, painting, or pyjamas. The Roman world fusion band, the Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio, was formed around here and is a real ...

    Santa Maria della Vittoria

    0.39 mi from Africa
    18 reviews

    One of those treasures that's all too common in Rome, Santa Maria della Vittoria houses the incredible Bernini sculpture "The Ecstasy of St. Theresa" so circumspectly that you'd never know it was there. The church is beautiful, but the sculpture itself, like so many of Bernini's works, is truly masterful.

    This old stable block is now an art museum that programs an interesting rotation of modern and classic art. The horse sized circular ramp ascending to the entrance is particularly cool, revealing the equine origins of the place.

    Mainly a traffic circle with a giant fountain, this is just close to Termini and also backs right up on the Terme di Diocleziano.

    Monti is an interesting little Roman neighborhood, full of cobblestone streets, great food and wine bars, and very good shopping. Tucked just behind Termini, it's quite central.

    Micca Club is one of Rome's more interesting nightlife spots, with different themed nights, burlesque performances, and a Sunday market. It's everything but touristy and absolutely worth a visit.

    The best time to go to Piazza di Spagna is the middle of the night. It will be deserted, and you can properly enjoy the stunning views from the top of the stairs, as well as imagine yourself a jaded turn of the century artist, whiling your time away philosophizing and writing poetry on the steps. If you go during ...

    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 ...

    Congregating in the heart of Monti, you'll find the hip youth of Rome. With bottles of beers, bicycles and lots of chatter, they surround the Fontana di piazza della Madonna dei Monti, a large but simple structure in the relatively plain square. Nearby boutiques and gourmet eateries provide plenty to see when sitting becomes a bore. With a good friend ...

    You would be hard pressed to find a friendlier bar in Monti. Independently owned and run by Calabrian Margherita, who never takes off her tango heels, locals and newcomers alike come here and stay longer than they planned. Their wine list is excellent as well; try the Nero di Troia.
