San Pietro in Vincoli contains several impressive frescoes and works of art, not to mention the ancient relics of the chains that held Saint Peter, but the main drawcard is the famous horned statue of Moses sculpted by Michelangelo for the tomb of Pope Julius....More

The famous Michelangelo "Moses" is here. Its called the Moses with Horns but the real story is more interesting. There is no charge to visit the church.

Easy to reach on a cross thru street on your way to the Colosseum. Not heavily frequented like many other Roman attractions. Can be seen easily in one hour. If you are religious, there are the chains that bound St. Peter in an altar and...More

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
