The church of St. George is located behind the Arch of Janus, not far from the Tiber. The rather simple interior uses columns taken from ancient temples. A very peaceful church to visit. The ancient Arcus Argentariorum (arch of the moneychangers) is attached to the...More

Tucked away on a small street in the heart of historic Rome is this beautiful church of the 7th century which reflects the more ancient style of Roman basilica. This is a must visit for anyone wanting to see authentic and fascinating architecture in Rome.
