The sign says "restoration" but the real story is the nuns don't want the American parishioners and so they are locked out. English Masses are held in several other nearby churches. This has been the case for over a year so I am not sure...More

If you are looking for the American church (and papal Audience tickets), the American parish is now St. Patrick on Via Boncompagni 31 - side street near American Embassy. Their website is stpatricksamericanrome.org. So now that the nuns have gotten rid of the American parish,...More

When we were planning our trip to Rome, we wanted to get a Sposi Novelli audience with the Pope, and there wasn't much up-to-date information out there about how to do it. The American community at Santa Susanna was extremely helpful. All we had to...More

A beautiful Roman church with an American association. It was closed when we visited – we admired the exterior. And since my mom’s name is Susanna, we couldn’t resist a photo of her with a chiesa of the same name! Beautiful architecture.

Not sure whether this is an active church or not. Was not able to go in when we visited. The outside of the church is nice but not sure about the interior.

This church is actually not a free-standing church but uses established facilities, ie, Santa Maria degli Angeli e di Martiri or an inside chapel. It was a pleasure to attend an English mass for a change. It is amazing to see how the church facilities...More

Above the city on the Janiculum hill, Monteverde is
Rome’s popular "getaway" neighborhood, coveted for its
greenery. Rome's largest urban park, Villa Pamphili,
is the area's centerpiece with affordable prices and
peace and quiet. Monteverde is just far enough away
from the center to feel like you’re on a Roman holiday
and close enough to feel the lure of Rome's chaos.
Though its downside is the lack of scheduled public
