Key Features

The Basilica of St. Mary of the Altar of Heaven (Basilica Santa Maria in Aracoeli al Campidoglio) located on the highest summit of the Capitoline Hill. It is still the designated Church of the Italian Senate and the Roman people, one of the most impressive and important churches of Rome.

More about this venue

Inside, the church contains three naves, divided by 22 Roman columns that are all a bit different from one another since they were taken from different several Roman buildings. Also inside, several frescoes have been lovingly preserved. For example, guests can view 15th century works by Pinturicchio profiling the life of Saint Bernardino of Siena.

The stairs
The first thing most visitors notice about Santa Maria in Aracoeli is the set of 124 marble steps (122 if you start on the right side) that lead up the hill to the church's main entrance.
