A superb way to spend an hour in this wonderful city

Kath P., UK

Intellectually fulfilling and fun. It may not seem very touristic, but it would take your visit to Rome to another level.

Erkin Ozel, Turkey

The concert would have been enough with just the knowledgeable tour of the church. Add beautiful baroque music to that and I was in heaven.

We felt almost transported back in time. An experience not to be missed.
