Best Churches In Rome (Italy)

Rome is eternally Catholic, with architecturally beautiful religious churches scattered all over the country. Rome can be a cultural experience for both the catholics, and non-catholics, and provide one with experiences that makes Rome, the stunning place that it is.

Basilica of Santa Maria Del Popolo

Of all the churches in Rome, Basilica of Santa Maria del Popolo is special, and equally stunning with the works of the best Renaissance artists. During 1099, a belief spread across Rome that the ghost of Nero haunted the area near North gate. The belief came to existence due to evil looking crows that resorted on a tree. As a combat to this problem, the tree was chopped down, and a church was built in its place.

St. Peter's Basilica

St. Peter's Basilica is the most famous church in the entire world, even though it may not be the oldest one. It is believed that this church is built at the site where St. Peter, the first Pope, was crucified. It takes time to savour the adjoining chapels, and museum. Famous Renaissance artists, such as Michelangelo, designed the interior. The basilica took more than 150 years to complete, but the wait was worth the while.

Basilica Di Santa Maria Maggiore

Also known as, St. Mary Major Basilica is one of the important Religious Churches in Rome. The church contains a myriad of artefacts, representing Rome's ancient Christian art civilisation. Every bit and pieces of this basilica has some connections with the religious history. A miracle of snow celebration is held on the August 5th, when thousands of white petals are dropped down from the ceiling.  

San Giovanni in Laterano

St. John Lateran aka San Giovanni in Laterano is listed among popular Basilicas in Rome. The Basilica serves as the home cathedral for the archbishop or Rome, and for the Pope. It is dedicated to the Evangelist and the Baptist, John. It is also known as 'World’s and Rome’s cathedral.’ According to people’s belief, it is the first Catholic Church built in Rome.

Basilica of San Clemente

Named after St. Clement, who was the third Pope after St. Peter, this basilica is located a few blocks away from Colosseum. The present church is built over almost four layers, including churches and houses that were destroyed earlier. At one part of the history, the church used to be a Pagan temple. The church even showcases beautiful mosaics, and frescoes.

San Lorenzo Fuori le Mura

Although, it is not exactly considered as a church in Rome, it still is a shrine to St. Stephen and St. Justin. The church was built back in the sixth century, and worshippers can still see the mosaics that describe the epoch when Jesus Christ was with saints. The exterior and the tomb of St. Lawrence is designed by the frescoes of the thirteenth century. Almost every pope has contributed funds to the Basilica right from its construction and changed the shrine that was initially small into a complex that turned out to be the biggest architecture of religion located at the border of territory of Rome.

Santa Maria in Trastevere

The list of churches in Rome cannot be complete without mentioning the Santa Maria church in Trastevere. It is one of the oldest and most impressive churches in Rome that was constructed around 350 AD. It is also the very first church of the city where the public was allowed to enter and is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. In the twelfth century, it was reconstructed by Pope Innocent II, and in the present day. It displays the mosaics of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.

Santa Maria Sopra Minerva

This church was built on a temple’s ruins for Minerva, who is the ancient goddess of wisdom. The architecture of this church is what makes it impressive and one of the best churches for pilgrims in Rome. The Dominicans constructed this church back in the thirteenth-century making it one of the very few Gothic churches of Rome.

Rome is a real mix of tradition, and modern culture. The city flares its culture, acting like the magnetic that gathers tourists from all over the world. Religious Churches in Rome is equally breath-taking, and devotional that would make anyone feel at ease.

    • Trip to Italy

      We contacted Duniya Safari for a customized Italy trip covering 3 cities - Rome, Florence and Venice and they really exceeded our expectations! Everything about the trip was so well-organized and coordinated. Right from the airport to hotel transfers, hotel bookings, inter-city transfers and sight-seeing vouchers- everything went very smoothly. The high-light of the trip was a day trip to the Tuscany region and Piza with a wine-tasting lunch at a family-run vineyard. A special thanks to Mayuri Ganguly from Duniya Safari for making this trip so memorable for my family and me!

    • Trip to Europe

      I went on a honeymoon to Switzerland and Italy for 11 days. I posted my requirement on travel traingle and I got the good quote from holiday Aces. The team is very helpful, they will help you with everything like what to do, how to go somewhere. They will be connected to you via WhatsApp and phone. The hotels were amazing, the only problem I had was one of the hotel was little inside from the main road and we had to walk with our luggage. Overall I had a great time. I liked the team the way they helped me. I will certainly go ahead with holiday Aces for my future trips. Titlis and Jungfrau was amazing in Switzerland and the gandola ride in Venice was exciting. Also going inside the leaning tower of Pisa was amazing, the stairs were slanted, I felt like someone is pushing me towards the other side.

    • Trip to Italy

      Trip was nothing short of dream come true. Really had great fun and was able to manage everything on the trip because of the Itenary shared. One suggestion was please give help to solo traveller going abroad first time to keep cash in currency of the place they are travelling because its must required. Another important thing would be to help people who are pure vegetarians to find indian restaurants which will really help them to have proper food because in italy its pure non vegetarian food. I would suggest to take food packets from india and also research the place of travel before going so that you already have a brief knowledge of the locations of travel. In locals in italy during night hours request to travel via taxi would be a suggestion by me to avoid any problems.

      Firstly thanks to Mr PRASHANT and SHUBHAM from hubholiday . It was our honeymoon Trip ,and we had an unforgettable trip to Italy. Everything was taken care of by Shubham And Prashant from HubHoliday. Shubham was extremely helpful and managed the entire bookings/Itinerary pretty well. Hotel Property Were really Great and at good Location . It was an unforgettable memory of my life . We have booked the jet airways flights , but before our travel jet airways flights cancelled , Mr Prashant called the airlines and booked ethihad flights with no extra charge . A special note to Hub Holiday team - Prashant and Shubham who were 24*7 available on phone and never left a stone unturned to address my query or provide guidance as and when I required. Shubham worked really hard on understanding our requirements and went through several iterations to give us the best possible plan. Truly speaking, we couldn't have created one like this ourselves. We were booked at centrally located 3/4 star hotels and had all the transfers included. We wanted to keep our schedule relatively relaxed, so were given bookings on cruises, day passes which included free public transportation & entry to some of the spots, hop on-hop off city tours which gave us a lot of flexibility and still let us see the best that the city had to offer. We we're quite confused in the beginning as to how the itinerary will be and what are the best places to visit in Europe .Shubham has guided us to go to italy as italy was within our budget . Audi cars were provided for pick up and drops!!A big Thanks to Shubham , Prashant and your team for providing the excellent arrangement and support throughout the trip.I would love to have another trip with HubHoliday in future.
