"Santa Maria Maggiore." Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore Tip by Packerman
Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore, Rome: 73 reviews and 177 photos
A more beautiful interior than San Giovanni in Laterano and St Peter's. The colors and designs are spectacular. There are two huge chapels, Paolina & Sistina, that have great cupolas! Very very interesting basillica! If you have time and don't have kids to worry about then an hour per great cathedral is easily done by just looking and studying the designs and other interesting structures inside the basillica. I wish I could have spent more time inside.
Directions: Atop the Esquiline Hill. Not too far west of the train station.
