There are so many special churches in Rome but the Bernini carving of The Ecstasy is quite simply stunning. It's not on a lot of the main tourist itineraries so you have to actively seek it out. As always, it's a place of worship so...More

Take time and effort and go to this lovely little church. Of course the "Ecstasy" is the main attraction but it is nice to look at the rest of the church as well

As a huge Bernini fan this church was high on my list. The Ecstasy of Stain Teresa is here and just gorgeous. Its popular but not a main sight and it feels like you've found a gem when you're there.

Great if you are around the area. What I love about Rome is that you have what Bernini felt himself was his greatest work of art in a church which is not one of the more touristy ones. Very humbling and eye opening with the...More

Very interesting small church, located near Republic Square. Here is the famous statue of Bernini - Estasi di Santa Teresa.

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only
way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The
Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas
in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s
