Church who remains the martyrs, dedicated to Santa Prassade and occupies an ancient site from the Roman persecutions of the Christians; Santa Prassade is also burried in this basilica; the Bysantine mosaics are the most beautiful.

The other reviews say it all, a jewel of church tucked away down a side street with some astonishing mosaics. Like many small Roman churches not much to look at from the outside but enter in and 'wow'.

This is one of the best churches in Rome and in Italy. It's close to Via Merulana and to Panella, one of the best bakeries in town (second only to Roscioli). Don't miss the small chapel all-around made of mosaic.

We visited on the way back from Santa Maggiore and it was worth going inside as the old mosaics here are amazing. You can pay 1 euro to light up the different sections and it really does help to see them in their glory.

If one decided whether or not to visit based on the way it looks on the outside, there is a good chance very few people would ever enter. Since you’ll be in the area visiting Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore (you know you will…), it...More

Tucked down a little side street is the small church of Santa Prassede (only a minor basilica, not a grand basilica like St Peters!), a stone's throw from Santa Maria Maggiore. It's not possible to visit during mass and is closed over lunchtime so plan...More

The Basilica of Saint Praxedes is one of the most beautiful churches in Rome, yet it is not in the "standard" tourist tour - it's a hidden gem in Rome. The current church was built starting in the 9th century, and there are still outstanding...More

It's definitely free to enter. I can't remember if it was 1 euro or 50 cents to light up the chapel mosaics

Yes it is fairly wheelchair friendly except the crypt which has stairs. The street level pavement near the entrance has a step, what I can't remember is if the gradient reduces to nil at street level. Also there is a small... More

Usually from 7 or 7.30am till noon, then 4 - 6. Avoid church service times (Sundays). Though you can enter and pretend to be part of the service - just don't act like a tourist!
