When in Rome visit Trastevere .. it’s so relaxed. Enjoy the casual dining and drinks. And plead visit Santa Maria In Trastevere / the most beautiful church you’ll find anywhere.

A lovely church located in a small piazza in a lovely area! Despite it being one of the largest structures in the Trastevere area, like it's 'lived in' surroundings, there's something quaint about this church.

From the outside, just looking at its mixture of styles and design you can see how it's grown over the centuries - Nothing overly inspiring to look at, but very visually appealing. Inside, however, be prepared for unexpectedly ornate ceilings, fine mosaics and an impressive alter set amongst gold leafed friezes and a plethora of granite columns.

A real surprise.

Loved the quietness of this basilica and of the entire area across the river. It's completely different from the "known" part.
If you like it quiet and romantic, go across the river.

This basilica is located across the river from the main city center in Rome in a less busy area not too far from the Vatican. Our plan for the day was to start here and walk back towards Piazza Venizia seeing the sights along the way. Santa Maria Trastevere was a great way to start and a nice surprise. How gorgeous! The big plus was that there was practically no one here at 9:30 am. We had the place to ourselves and got to enjoy the beauty of the interior.

The original ground breaking for Trastevere was in the 4th century with a very interesting past. There is a small piazza in front of the basilica with the usual military police on guard with their big weapons posted out in front. We took shots of the exterior as we left. This place is magnificent.
