Spent an hour here on a cool Sunday morning, attending mass with a friend. The congregation was warm and welcoming and we were never strangers. This Church is one of my favorites in Rome and perhaps in all of Italy. The magnificent altar, apse and chapels encourage many visitors; the opportunity to experience the sacredness of the Church where many... More

We visited Santa Maria in Trastevere over the Christmas holiday. The church was especially beautiful lit by candles in the evening. The mosaics are stunning and my 10 year old son was transfixed by the size and beauty of the church. One of the few places in Rome not overrun with tourists. Definitely a must see.

What a beautiful, peaceful church. It was hard to tear myself away from the golden mosaics. I love visiting these churches that are less crowded than the major sights yet here beautiful art. This church feels very much like a house of worship. Even with tourists passing through, it is possible to sit and contemplate. You have to deposit coins... More

Santa Maria in Trastevere, probably Rome’s oldest church, had managed to avoid substantial structural changes. Supposedly founded on the site where a miraculous font of oil spurted on the day of Christ’s birth, there were mosaics depicting this in the apse; they dated from 1291. Besides this 12th-century church with 13th-century mosaics, there were 22 mismatched ancient columns, a wall... More

This is a beautiful, beautiful church - with a lot of gold (and sheep: we like sheep!). We were in Rome over Christmas and the Christmas mass here (with doors opening at 23.45) was impressive and moving (and lasted precisely an hour). Go there if you get the chance!

A minor church in Rome. Free It's only a 10-15 min walk at the most from Pantheon to Trastevere and you can go via Piazza Navona.

If you are in Trastevere, it's well worth visiting this lovely church. The extensive mosaics (both inside and out) are a feast for the eyes! It's particularly beautiful at night as the mosaics on the facade are illuminated.

Do not leave Trastevere without stopping here. Beautiful church with a warm and friendly atmosphere - particularly in the evening. Amazing frescos and a great place just to sit for a while.

Neighbourhood Profile
Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
