Log in to rate this item
Rome is filled with churches. It has been the center of the Catholic Church for almost two thousand years. You might know the most famous ones, like Saint Peter's Basilica or St. John Lateran. These churches are amazing. But they are not the only ones. If you are looking for something special to visit on your trip to Rome, pick out a few less know churches. You often find the most amazing and unexpected things inside them. I love showing people these lesser known churches, because you can show people something they did not expect at all. In this guidebook, I take you to all the amazing churches in Rome. I'll tell you all the interesting and funny stories about the big Papal Basilicas, like Saint Peter's, but I will also take you to the lesser known gems, like the San Clemente, where there are two churches built on top of each other and under that you can visit an ancient Roman house. I will show you the Sant'Ignazio, where you will be amazed by the perspective in the ceiling fresco. I'll show you where you have to ring a doorbell so a nun appears behind iron bars that you can pay a euro so she opens the door to an amazing chapel with frescos from the early middle ages. In this eBook, you will find interesting stories about the most important churches in Rome. I'll talk about Saint Peter's Basilica, St. John Lateran, Santa Maria Maggiore, Saint Paul outside the walls and many more.
