As the free-spirited type who doesn’t enjoying planning (too much), I remember jumping onto a bus in Rome during a European backpacking adventure a few years ago without knowing exactly where to go. Turns out, the city is pretty large, and that first day, I missed a lot of attractions, including The Vatican which was closed the next day.

If you’ve been to Italy’s capital, you’re probably aware of many of the beautiful churches there are to discover. While St. Peter's Basilica, St. Paul Outside the Walls, and Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore are generally on people's lists, Rome has a whole slew of concealed churches that you may not know exist. So, in order to assist you in not making my same mistake, here are a list of eight hidden churches in the city that will take some planning and research to find.
