Beautiful gem. We were touring the Colosseum and the ruins at night and came upon this quaint church. Unfortunately it was closed in the evening. It drew us back and we had service there later in the week. Not something to go out of your...More

The line to the Palatine Hill was too big, so we decided to take a detour up the side of the hill entrance. Up the hill, along the road are some murals of the Via Sacra, you arrive at a simple church and convent. We...More

This is a lovely little (not to say - tiny) convent, located on the Palatine hill. We reached it by accident, as it was not on any guide of the Palatine hill, but it was both tranquil and beautiful. A lovely gem on the hill.

This was a lovely little surprise as we walked up from the Colloseum for an evening walk. The crowds were dissipating after closing time at the Colloseum, which is also when the park area for the Palatine archeological sites closes, and we found this little...More

The Convent of St. Bonaventure at Palatine has a truly prominent location in Rome. It is situated on the northeast corner that overlooks the colosseum and much of the Roman Forum. A relatively new addition to the area, it was completed in the late 1600's....More

Most people seem to end up here due to bad signposting (we walked up hoping to find the entrance to the Roman Forum...), BUT we are so glad we stumbled upon it! If you find yourself here, don't just take a quick glance and leave...More

Seemed like it's easy to stumple upon this little church when trying to approach Arch of Constantine, 'cause everyone thought it's the road to the entrance, but nobody seemed to mind, 'cause it's a pretty and quiet uphill walk. With so many to see in...More
