Basilica San Pietro in Vincoli, Rome: 39 reviews and 76 photos
Translated: "Saint Peter in Chains" This church has an unassuming facade, but what it stores inside is where it's real beauty lies. This church is famous for housing Michelangelo's "Moses" statue. It was originally was carved for the tomb of Pope Julius II. It also houses on display the chains that St. Peter was bound with when he was imprisoned in Rome. I believe this church is one of those "must sees" when on your visit to the "Eternal City". You could walk right past this church and not realize what your missing, so if your visiting Rome, be sure to have it marked on your map and in your mind.
Address: On Via Cavour very close to the Colosseum.
Directions: On Via Cavour, it has a fountain in the small piazza in front of the church.
