Why locals love it

One of many fabulous churches in Rome - one of the 4 main basilicas. Magnificent internally with beautiful artworks. It is the largest Catholic Marian church in Rome. This is awe inspiring and fascinating: when you look at all the paintings and the craftmanship of this building, you are just blown away with its appearance.

Why you should visit it

An absolutely beautiful basilica. Unlike most of the attractions in Rome this is not so packed with tourists. You can admire great mosaics and some tombs with skeletons and skulls on. The ceiling is just breathtaking.

Special tip

Strategically located near Termini station. Be aware that the rear doors are shut: don't walk away! Do a lap and you will see that it's open
