  • The basilica of our Lady in Trastevere is a real piece of art. You can spend hours in observing and appreciating the ceiling (check the photos). I spent an hour in this basilica and will go back again during my next visit to the eternal city of Rome. The surroundings are full of charm. This is one of the most charming areas in Rome. A lot of great restaurants!
  • You would not expect it when you stand in front of the Basilica, but this is a surprisingly large and very beautiful Basilica. The Basilica is located in the Trastevere district and has a beautiful ceiling, magnificent mosaic and stained glass. Admission is free (August 2022). If you are in Trastevere, do not hesitate to visit this beautiful Basilica.
