Worth a look if you’re heading up Gianicolo Hill in Trastevere. It was closed when I was there (5pm on a Thursday), but I could see inside through the glass doors. It’s tough to criticize any Roman church, but this was my least favorite one.

Beautiful Church at Gianicolo in Rome. great piece of art and culture. Inside the cloister, you can visit the Tempietto del Bramante, really a little jewel in Rome and very well preserved! Outside the Church a marvellous view of the town of Rome.

The legend says that in that place S. Peter was crucified. The church has many masterpieces, which can be better enjoyed thanks to a guided tour (as it happened to me), not least a little chapel designed by Vasari with suggestion by Michelangelo. Outside the...More

Wonderful exhibition in the Spanish centre and excellent efforts to make the attraction accessible. Please attend to the gutters in the Chiesa San Pietro. Missing in parts and choked with vegetation. It's not all about photogrammmetry. Otherwise water ingress and loss of fabric.

Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and
overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible
mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable
