The full name of the church is The Church of the Most Holy Name (Santissimo Nome) of Mary at the Trajan Forum and it is located in front of the Column of Trajan and next to the church of Santa Maria di Loreto.

The 'Church of the Most Holy Name of Mary' is located very close to Trajan's Column in the northwestern end of the ancient Rome area. The church definitely stands out when walking around Trajan's Forum and is worth 10 minutes inside where you'll find many colors of marble and lots of gilding. The dome ceiling isn't painted but has some... More

This area contains quite a few sights that are not on Rome's must see list but while in this area make sure to look into all these great spots.

Don't let the overflow of impressions of the Colosseum and the archaeological sites of the all those "Foro" stop you from stepping into the beautiful church Ss. Nome di Maria, at the top of the excavations, just next to Trajan's Column, to get a breather in the quiet atmosphere and and admire the wonderful decorations. See my pictures. To be... More

The Santissimo Nome di Maria al Foro Traiano Church stands across the Trajan's Column and is an excellent spot for a short break if your walking around Rome sightseeing. This church is a Roman Catholic church with many pieces of art work to see nestled within a nice ambience. A good way to kill 15 minutes on your way around... More

Beware of young girls/women pickpockets operating in this area. They wait for victims to pass by and move in from behind. They are very persistant and at it all day. They can be seen with infants strapped to their chest, some even breastfeeding in the street. Be VERY cautious in this area!

Staying in Monti

Neighbourhood Profile
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
