Part of the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel is one of the most important places of worship in Rome. This is where the conclaves are held to elect new popes.
Dominating the Vatican, St. Peter’s Basilica is, without doubt, one of the most lavishly beautiful and impressive churches in the world.
The Pantheon is equally famous for its architecture as well as the beauty of its interior.
Explore Rome off-beat and see one of the city's four main basilicas, churches given special privileges by the Pope.
Like many churches in Rome, this beautiful basilica has a bloody past. It is dedicated to Saint Cecilia, the patron saint of music.
Located close to the Colosseum, San Clemente Basilica is typical of Rome in that it’s built upon layer and layer of history.
As the name suggests, this vast basilica sits on top of (sopra) the ruins of a temple dedicated to Minerva, who was the Roman goddess of wisdom.
Although not as ornate from the outside, this church in Piazza del Popolo is home to works by Raphael, Bernini and Caravaggio.
Also known as St. Paul Outside the Walls, this massive basilica south of the Tiber River in the Ostiense neighborhood is the world's third largest church.
