I wanted to see the beautiful Bernini sculpture of "The Ecstasy of St Teresa" but was not prepared for what inside this humble looking church. The frescoes and relief sculpture absolutely blew me away. The day before we had visited the Sistine Chapel, which while...More

It's a must visit place when in Rome. Do go through the war museum and use the elevator to go to the top. You will have to get a ticket which is right there and then but it's worth going right to the top.

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighborhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
models while bored housewives hung out in streetside
cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the
cocktails, but the neighborhood is now home to
five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law
