A beautiful church, walking on holy grounds it felt like. Mosiac art, beautiful icons. Very much worth taking the time out of you itinerary.

These byzantine mosaics are probably overlooked and underrated, but they are really special. Our guide took us here and so glad she did.

I really pleasantly surprised by this little church. I visited this site while on my Pilgrim's tour and I really enjoyed the Byzantine Art that adorned the church, especially all the glittering gold colors. The church was also very cool and a nice reprieve from...More

Booked a jump the line tour, the only way to go. The lines of people were 3-4 kms long at 9am. But well worht while. The sun and heat can drive you away. Go early and make sure you get in.

It is difficult to describe how amazing the old mosaics are in this Basilica. We had a guided tour by Context travel and it was wonderful to learn about this Basilica. There was so much that we would have missed without the tour. Definitely, one...More

This is a great little church in Rome very near Santa Maria Maggiore. We took a taxi to Santa Maria Maggiore then stopped here on our way to visiting Saint Peter in Chains then walked on to the Collesseum. It was a great walk and...More

If you are visiting Santa Maria Maggiore take a few more minutes to go down the street opposite and turn right after just 100m to find this little church. It still has the feeling of a church after so many in Rome have been "taken...More

Another true gem! A true pleasure for lovers of religious art: the most wonderful, old mosaics! When you're at it, try to find the church named after Prassedes sister Pudenzia (at least the tradition says so). Basilica Sta Pudenziana is located in via Urbana 160...More

Although somewhat overlooked and in the shadow of Basilica Di Santa Maria Maggiore which is close by Basilica Di Santa Prassede is in my opinion much more beautiful and although of more historical importance it doesn't have the tourist scrum of its more illustrious neighbour....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!
