The church is two-toned on the front---yellowish brick below and pinkish brick above (colour-co-ordinated!). It's not big inside, but has some of the most striking collection of sculptures I've seen in a Roman church. Some are memorial ones, like a large wall plaque for the Swiss painter Angelica Kauffmann (one of the most important women artists of the 18th century)... More

Rome is full of surprises and this beautiful Baroque church is a fine example. On our way from the Spanish Steps to the Trevi Fountain, my mother suddenly needed to use the restroom. In haste, I went into this church without knowing where this was in search for my mother's relief. In this small church, what I greeted me was... More

This is church is not over-decorated, so those who don't enjoy baroque art would find a peace for their eyes here. :) It is tasteful, modest, yet beautiful.

We attended this church on a free walking tour of Rome. It's not the biggest church I've seen but it is a rather beautifully composed place with high quality, tasteful decor rather than the excessive gold bling that seems to adorn many other places. Pride of place goes to the two genuine Bernini angel statues, of which there are several... More

Be careful...We were looking for this church and found one 2 blocks away with the same name across the front top chiseled in stone. After checking google earth we found the real st. Andrea 2 blocks away. The church had some intersting statues and unique marble.

What a great experience we had here, our guide gave us the background before we entered, also make sure you have a good look for the spire, it is simply stunning and hid away at the back of the church. It is beautiful inside and had it not been for our guide, we would have simply walked past this, it... More

We could not enter the church as there was a mass taking place. However the small courtyard attached to the church is an unexpected haven in the hustle and bustle of Rome.It is lovely with plants and trees and a little fountain. One of the buildings surrounding the courtyard appears to be used by students from the nearby music school... More

This church lies close to both the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain, so it can easily be incorporated into an itinerary. And what a blessing it is to anyone who enters it! Others have mentioned the amazing Bernini angels which are a must see, but the chapel of the Apparition, where Our Lady appeared to Alphonse Ratisbonne in 1842,... More

Staying in Colonna

Neighbourhood Profile
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very centre of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping centre, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
