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 (Italian military) on hand, plus a special siren to start off the ceremony. The incomparable setting continues to be a favorite for weddings.
