A short walk from the Colosseum on an unassuming street with an unassuming church facing you has to see this church. Michelangelo artwork, the chains of St Peter and cool pics made this one of my boys favorite stops.

I love to go there just to enjoy Michelangelo's Moses. It's amazing. It's worth the visit. Also St. Pietro's chains are exposed there. A place full of history.

A beautiful church also known as St Peter In Chains. The Michaelangelo statue of Moses is stunning and the chains of St Peter are displayed in a glass casing. The ceiling paintings are both beautiful and breathtaking. There is a small climb to the church...More

Beautiful church. The highlight here is the statue of Moses. If you make a donation, the statue is supposed to light up. When we arrived it was lit, then faded. We put in a few coins but it did not re-light. Worth seeing if you...More

A little off the main road, this church is a must see. Legend holds that the chains there were used to imprison St. Peter. The real gem though is Michelangelo's statue of Moses in Pope Julius' tomb.

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

No. You cannot see the statue from the outside. It is a very small church and there are no security lines to get in (at least there weren't in October). Also of interest in the church are the chains which they say bound... More
