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.

    Definitely go at night when it is just eerily beautiful to behold. Roman grandeur writ very large. And it's a lot of fun too, especially navigating the crowds and climbing the steps.

    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.

    Amazing feat of architecture! The Pantheon and its freestanding dome is just as amazing as the symmetrical exterior designs as the amazing history that is stored within.

    Trajan's Column

    23 reviews

    Dedicated in AD 113 as part of Trajan's forum at Rome, this 29-meter (95-foot) high marble column on a square sculpted base celebrated the emperor's military achievements. The detailed spiral reliefs on the shaft of the column, depicting Trajan's Dacian wars (AD 101- 02, 105-06), were probably added after his death as a form of commemoration. Rome’s most impressive novelties ...

    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 ...

    Try to avoid the crowds by coming in the morning. Also, DO NOT pose with the gladiator...10 Euros per person? Are you kidding me? I can buy a good book with that. But it's really very beautiful. The history is amusing as well.

    I have a love-hate relationship with this major road. I love the history, the attractions, the way it shines at night. It's basically a series of amazing historical places one after another. I hate it for the lack of shade, the heat and the traffic. If you should ever find yourself caught on a packed bus along this stretch during ...

    Beautiful church with high, ornate ceilings and countless altars. It's elaborate and grand and makes you feel small without making you feel insignificant. It's a little known fact that the tomb of Gianlorenzo Bernini rests here; blink and you could miss the step indicating its location. It's also said that there are remnants of Jesus' baby crib kept here, though ...

    I'm hard-pressed to find a more beautiful park in the world. Perhaps it's because there are remnants of history proliferated about that makes it so much more mesmerizing than any other park I've been to in the world. Villa Borghese is Rome's expansive natural playground. With great museums inside, notably the Galleria Borghese and the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna, it's ...

    Recommended to me by fellow Gogoboters, this is an insanely beautiful yet haunting crypt with the bones of hundreds of Capuchin monks. They have a taste for the macabre, but it's one of the most remarkable tributes to the pedigree of the order.

    This church has an illusionist painted ceiling that fools the eye--incredible. You need to walk around to confirm it is an illusion.
