Churches: Francesco Bianchini's meridian line
*'''Santa Maria in Trastevere''' - One of the oldest churches in the city. The nave is lined with a mismatched collection of columns taken from ancient Roman buildings. The apse is covered in gold mosaics from the 13th century, arguably the finest mosaics in the city.

*'''Santa Maria degli Angeli''' - This church was built inside the former baths of Diocletian. Very light and airy inside. Note the unusual art on the outside doors. Around solar noon check out the sun's image on Francesco Bianchini's meridian line inside.
*'''San Pietro in Vincoli''' - The chains that held St. Peter are displayed in a case before the altar. Also contains a statue of Moses created by Michelangelo. It's close to the Colosseum, but a little hard to find.
*'''Santissima Trinità dei Monti''' - Up above the Spanish Steps.
