    Wow you have found so many hidden gems in Rome ! I have been twice in Rome and I haven’t been to any that are listed on your list! Perhaps it is time for me to have a third visit and use your post as my tour guide! I am special interested of visiting the Arciconfraternita Santa Maria dell’Orazione e Morte! It sounds intriguing and scary! And look at Farmacia della Scala, that pharmacy is beautiful! Another hidden gem in Rome that caught my eyes is Quartiere Coppede, I like grotesque figures, and Gothic!

    Rome is not my favorite place in Italy. I prefer Tuscany, Dolomites or Sicily. But after reading you article describing all those hidden gems I wish I would go to Rome one more time and see it again from this perspective. I like your photos and style. Keep up good work!

    I guess with a city that has so much history it’s understandable that there would be so many hidden gems in Rome. I remember being completely surprised by the Farmacia della Scala – such an amazing find. I didn’t know that story about the snake escaping and becoming the symbol for pharmacies, very interesting.

    It has been far too long since we were last in Rome. So great to read about some places off the beaten path. I must admit that we missed Villa Medici when we were at the Spanish Steps. I love spots like you found on Aventine Hill to get a perfectly framed shot. Renting a bike to explore Quariere Coppede sounds like a great way to spend a day. So interesting to see such a modern church as Chiesa de Dio Padre Misericordioso. We would definitely want to hike on Via Sacra for the views. Thanks for some tips on new things to do in Rome.

    Wow! I never realize that there are more things to see and do in Rome. These are definitely unrated because tourists are just to focused on the main attractions.

    Chiesa di Dio Padre Misericordioso is definitely a must-see because of its unique features. Thank you so much fo r sharing these gems. We hope to visit them one day.

    I love to travel off the beaten path and discover the sights that most people have never even heard of. This is definitely going to be my guide when I go to Rome. and that hill of broken jars must be so cool to behold!

    I love hidden gems but I got only 2 days in Rome so end up seeing all those famous attractions. I missed many of listed in your post Villa Medici looks very beautiful. Colorful houses are my weakness and therefore Piccola Londra neighborhood would be my first choice to visit. You have listed all unique places.

    I have visited Rome thrice now and can only say one thing. I would want to visit it again . A city that has so much on offer and you can only get more and more every time you return to it. Thanks for even showing some more hidden gems . To start with my favourite would be Aventine Hill and the Knights of Malta Square which I have missed. Another place I would want to visit on my next trip and thanks for sharing it would be Santa Maria del Piano. Overall some great hidden gems you have shared and makes me want to book and visit Rome again soon.

    I have been to Rome several times but missed out on many of these amazing offbeat places. Frankly, visiting a pharmacy has never been on my agenda ever but Farmacia della Scala does look quite surprising. I would definitely love to explore this well-preserved 17th-century pharmacy that was once the pharmacy of the Papal Court. And, following your advice, I’ll call up beforehand to make an appointment before I visit the pharmacy.
