So unexpected a find off the Via Merulana. So understated, so beautiful, so old. The mosaics so beautiful.

Don't make the mistake of missing this church when visiting nearby Santa Maria Maggiore. The mosaics are a real treat--not just the ones in the apse but also the ones in the small side chapels, which may not get as much natural light but you...More

Parallel to Via Merulana, runs near Santa Maria Maggiore, via Santa Prassede. On the right, a wall and a flashy door are introduced to the church of Santa Prassede; is a side entrance, which introduces the right nave of one of the most fascinating places...More

This is an incredibly beautiful Byzantine church built in the 800's not far off the beaten path near the Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome. We accidentally found it after visiting the area and was very amazed at the beautiful interior full of colorful mosaic....More

Tucked in a back street 200m from Santa Maria Maggiore, this is the most beautiful church we have visited in Rome. The Byzantine mosaics are breathtaking. Do not miss it!

The basilica Di Santa Pressede is a marvelous piece of architecture with interiors quite unique for Rome. The Eastern Christian mosaics make it a bridge between the Orthodox and Catholic canons in art. While in the city center, the temple is not on the main...More

Everyone talks about the mosaics here, especially the chapel of St. Zeno. Across the church, on the left side of the alter is a small chapel with a mosaic of Mary. If you take a picture of this (no flash) or look through you phone...More

Basilica Di Santa Prassede was close to our hotel so we passed by and thought we'd have a quick look inside. It was amazing. The interior of the building is a real discovery. It is lovely to at and it has some really stunning paintings...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

Just like the other responses here. As I recall it was 1 euro coin to light the mosaics and there was a donation box, but no fee to enter.

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!
