Santa Maria della Vittoria

Via 20 Settembre, 17, Rome, Province of Rome, Italy
18 reviews

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.

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

    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.

    This is the Catholic church for Americans in Rome. If you want to attend services in English, this is a good option.

    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 ...

    This is one of my favorite monuments in Rome. It's a functioning church, so open and free to enter. The dome is one of the largest in Europe, and has a hole in the center because, well, that was the best technology they had available over 2000 years ago. So, yes, it rains and snows inside. The giant columns outside ...

    This is another must see sight. If you are going to do the tour, you mist sign up for them early. Honestly, they're a little more pricier, and they don't take you anywhere you can't see yourself. And make sure you're getting your tour from the people that are supposed to be doing them. Taking the time to take this ...

    Capuchin Crypt

    0.33 mi from Santa Maria della Vittoria
    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 ...

    Coming Out

    With one of the best night-time views of the Colosseum, Coming Out is a great gay bar but fun to hang out at for straight peeps as well. I had many a tipsy, fun night here when I lived in the Eternal City.

    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 ...

    I was never all that impressed by the Spanish Steps as a monument in and of themselves. I did hang out with some friends here in 2005 after a long pub crawl on the Fourth of July.

    Villa Borghese

    I've always loved the Villa Borghese for its umbrella pines, beautiful landscaping, and the Borghese Gallery, which houses my favourite sculpture EVER, Bernini's Dafne and Apollo. I love it even more since they put free WIFI in the whole durn park. Who says Rome can't be modern?

    When I used to crave cheese fries and a pint in Rome, as incongruous as that very statement sounds, I'd sometimes get it at the Scholar's Lounge. Friendly, quality beer, and a little hint of home in the land of pasta, good wine and Latin men. Sometimes, there really is no place like home, even if where you happen to ...

    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.

    Trajan's Column

    0.77 mi from Santa Maria della Vittoria
    23 reviews

    This incredible column is inscribed with a spiralling bas-relief which recounts the story of the Emperor Trajan's Dacian wars. Funnily, a statue of St. Peter was plunked atop it in the 16th Century. What I really enjoy about this column is its absolute giant grandeur, as well as the knowledge that you could actually climb up all the way inside ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    A lovely place to sit on the wall, look over a panoramic view of Rome and take in a sunset, the Pincio is also usually less crowded than the Gianicolo.

    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.
