"Sta. Maria Maggiore" Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore Tip by davidlop
Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore, Rome: 74 reviews and 182 photos
This great building was built in the place a "signal" was received by the people in that times (snow falled in a summer just in that place). That occasion is conmemorated every year by throwing white rose petals -I don't remember the day-. Worth a visit. If you feel tired of art and churches, you can walk down Via Carlo Alberto to the Piazza Vittorio, where you find a dirty-cheap street market for clothes and such things... I recommend the church, in this case, anyway.
Address: Pza. dell Esquilino
Directions: Walking by Via Cavour, 4 blocks from Termini station. Between metro stations Termini and Vittorio E.
