We were advised to visit by friends to see the optical illusion done in this church which is very cleverly done. There is however so much more to this church with stunning artwork and altars. Well worth a visit and often quiet especially early morning.

Looking up at the ceiling is amazing. The craftsmanship is unbelievable. When you enter the church, you really believe there is a dome, and when you get closer, you notice it's all a fake. To me, it is a perfect description of religion, but that...More

This lavishly decorated church is dedicated to Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits that played a pivotal role in preaching Catholicism to the New World. The interior of the church is luxurious, with colourful paintings and golden ornaments. A must-see when in Rome.

I must learn to keep my photographs in sequence. We visited this church on our walking tour as we headed towards the Pantheon. An impressive structure, it dates to 1650 when it opened for public worship, however, the final consecration did not occur until 1722....More

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
