A jewel in religious art with sculptures and paintings but also with the architecture of this impressive church. Worth to take some time of self introspection and benefit from the peaceful environment. Mass are celebrated daily

This is a large well appointed basilica with an historic significance. There are many ornate churches in Rome and this one is worth a look inside

So maybe it's not as glamorous as a few of the other basilicas (particularly the papal ones) but Saint Andrews (of the Valley) is a stunning building. The fresco of his martyrdom is worth the visit on its own; but there's a few gems to...More

Basilica di St. Andrea della Valle is located near to Pantheon. It has the 3rd largest dome in Rome. The paintings and artworks inside are nice and worth to pay a visit inside while travel in this area.

Compared with the crowds in Pantheon or Piazza Navona, this church is surprisingly quiet. It is a good place to appreciate Italian artwork and paintings. The management team is also excellent. Magnifying glasses are all over the church for the visitors to study the frescoes...More

This is a beautiful church with ornate ceiling and dome, frescos everywhere you look, beautiful altar, a pieta and other nice statues. It is located on a side street across the Tiber River from the Vatican. It was built in 1591 by Pope Pius II.

Another church near the Pantheon and well worth a view. St Andrew of the Valle has the third largest dome in Rome as well as nice baroque artwork. The church is linked to a setting in Puccini's opera Tosca.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa

Open from 7am to 7h30 I believe. You can join a mass before the closing.
