Chiesa di Santa Maria del Popolo Reviews
The Basilica of Santa Maria del Popolo is a place not to be missed due to its location on the magnificent Piazza del Popolo and also due of the huge works of art of high value that are present... more »
If you are willing to see some Caravaggio's painting for free of charge then this church is worth to visit. There is easy access to church from Piazza del Popolo and it's also nearby Flamini metro... more »
This is well worth your time and attention. Beautiful and no crowds to speak of. Services are still held and on the day we were there a wedding was about to take place so it's not always open to the public. Stunning side chapels. Awe inspiring.
What else can be added to this already amazing trip to Rome well this church in the small area where they are plentiful and interesting and beautiful enough to pay homage as an avid film fan via the Tom Hanks hit angels and demons. We could easily all draw a map and follow Mr Langdon on his questing or just generally take in the beautiful array of art emblazoned on the walls of every church in this area. We can all say one day that we should all visit Rome but until you do you will never get the level of appreciation that not even photos can make justice of with this church and surrounding ones. One word GO! Second word breath, yes breath it all in and hold that breath for as long as possible as this is truly worth that effort.
