Beautiful gem. We were touring the Colosseum and the ruins at night and came upon this quaint church. Unfortunately it was closed in the evening. It drew us back and we had service there later in the week. Not something to go out of your...More
The line to the Palatine Hill was too big, so we decided to take a detour up the side of the hill entrance.
Up the hill, along the road are some murals of the Via Sacra, you arrive at a simple church and convent. We...More
On my free day in Rome, I accidentally found myself climbing this small hill; then saw and prayed the stations of the cross along the way,(as I was able to remember them); but each stop led a bit closer to the door of this monastery...More
This is a lovely little (not to say - tiny) convent, located on the Palatine hill.
We reached it by accident, as it was not on any guide of the Palatine hill, but it was both tranquil and beautiful.
A lovely gem on the hill.
Great little find - free guide offered his services when we got there - so felt a treat. ( clearly does to everyone though!) Great views from the gardens at back if church over the city and nice bit of history. Worth a visit for...More
This was a lovely little surprise as we walked up from the Colloseum for an evening walk. The crowds were dissipating after closing time at the Colloseum, which is also when the park area for the Palatine archeological sites closes, and we found this little...More
The Convent of St. Bonaventure at Palatine has a truly prominent location in Rome. It is situated on the northeast corner that overlooks the colosseum and much of the Roman Forum. A relatively new addition to the area, it was completed in the late 1600's....More
Climbed to this church on the Palatine Hill to look around to find volunteer Adriano giving guided tours of the Church, Sacristy and monastery garden. The garden was delightful and had wonderful views over Rome and although the Wisteria was not yest in flower, there...More
Most people seem to end up here due to bad signposting (we walked up hoping to find the entrance to the Roman Forum...), BUT we are so glad we stumbled upon it!
If you find yourself here, don't just take a quick glance and leave...More
Seemed like it's easy to stumple upon this little church when trying to approach Arch of Constantine, 'cause everyone thought it's the road to the entrance, but nobody seemed to mind, 'cause it's a pretty and quiet uphill walk. With so many to see in...More
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here. Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its ancient beginnings to its 21st century transformations. Whether it’s those historical playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this
neighborhood packs a cultural punch and then some. Screaming scooters, battling buses, crazy cars, and lots of foot traffic converge in the area all day long. By dusk, a different vibe emerges as the neighborhood quiets down. Don't be surprised if you find yourself passing through the Piazza Venezia at least once a day, since it’s the most direct way to get from one side of town to another.
