In this church can be seen the sculpture by Bernini of St. Teresa. It is a masterpiece! The church itself is surprisingly ornate on the inside - the outside is very ordinary looking. I went to this church as a sort of last minute nearby...More

We visited Santa Maria Della Vitorria on our last full day in Rome. I’m glad we went and didn’t miss it as this cathedral is another beauty. As with quite a few of the other cathedrals / basilicas it doesn’t look that impressive from the...More

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
models while bored housewives hung out in streetside
cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the
cocktails, but the neighbourhood is now home to
five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law
