There's a lovely enclosed garden round the back of the church; turn right as you face the main door and walk anti-clockwise round the church till you find a small gate. I tranquil, shady spot. Enjoy.

It has got a nice piazza in front with a fountain and coffee places and some sort of sculpture the kids played on. As churches go in Italy it is quite average, nice enough to peek into.
