Rome Sights

Santa Francesca Romana

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Updated 03/19/2014

Fodor's Review

This church, a 10th-century edifice with a Renaissance facade, is dedicated to the patron saint of motorists; on her feast day, March 9, cars and taxis crowd the Via dei Fori Imperali below for a special blessing—a cardinal and carabinieri on hand plus a special siren to start off the ceremony. The incomparable setting continues to be a favorite for weddings.
