Chiesa di San Paolo entro le Mura

Monti, Esquilino & San Lorenzo

With its stripy neo-Gothic exterior, Rome’s American Episcopal church is decorated with some unusual 19th-century mosaics designed by the Birmingham-born artist Edward Burne-Jones. Morning prayer is held at 9.30am from Monday to Friday, and Holy Eucharist at 10.30am on Sundays.
