One of the first parish churches in Rome, this structure's chapel has been dated back to 140 AD, then converted to a regular church after tolerance was granted to Christians in the early fourth century.
This Church is a real gem. It isn't easy to find, but when you do it will have been worth the trip!
Sit in a pew quietly, and contemplate what's going on in the mosaic. This is a very quiet Church not many people know...More
Santa Pudenziana was built in the late 4th or early 5th century. It is adorned with a wonderful mosaic behind the altar. The realistic figures are a surprise since one is used to the Byzantine figures you see in Ravenna or Monreale. These are earlier...More
We were the only people in the basilica when we visited. It is another one of those rather beautiful churches well off the normal path taken by tourists which is a shame as it should be visited more.
It is probably one of the oldest...More
Moving, historical Church. Peter and Paul visited and likely prayed here. Was the church of the first popes until about 300 AD when the Lateran became the church of the pope. Very well preserved! So close to the Basilica of Santa Maria Baggiore. Extensive history...More

Oldest church in Rome. 4th century. Peter's table on which he first celebrated the Eucharist in Rome (at Senator Pudens' home on which the church was built) is here and is located in the side chapel to the left of the apse.

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
