Save yourself hours of waiting by booking this skip-the-line tour of the Sistine Chapel, Raphael’s Rooms, and St. Peter’s Basilica (when the option is selected) in Rome.

There are few places left with such an authentic atmosphere. High up on the Gianicolo Hill, this abbey commands a spectacular view of the whole of Rome. If after a long day in the streets, overpowered buy to much beauty and to many tourist; this is the place to come to. You can sit out in its small garden and simply let it all sink in. The Abbey itself is charming, as is the cloister. Torquato Tasso, the great 17th century plaright is buried her, there are also some worthy frescoes by Domenichino.

Sant 'Onofrio and the attached cloisters have been a favorite of our family for generations. The cloisters are open even during the afternoon (church is only open from 9am to 1pm). There is no one here usually and in the bustle of Rome at the top of Janiculum Hill you are surrounded by a beautiful garden and fountain. The 17th century frescoes in the cloisters are beautiful. Worth a trip!

As you walk down the Passeggiata del Gianicolo, past the statue of Anita Garibalidi and the Lighthouse, you will reach the Church of Sant'Onofrio on your left, up some stairs. There are also a convent and a cloister attached to the Church.There are 17th century frescoes on the outer walls and Gothic elements inside (feed the light meters to see the details better). My favorite part was the cloister of the convent to the right of the entry.Here you will find a charming miniscule garden surrounded by ancient Roman columns, with frescoes. As you exit don't miss the Gothic tomb in the wall, complete with marble skulls and skeletons. When you come back outside, sit for a moment on the bench under the trees near the fountain. The views of Rome from this spot are worth contemplating.
