"Fantastic Place "

Outside it doesn't seem to be as great as it is inside, so it deserves a look. Moses statue from Michelangelo is a must to see. Anyway, it takes a few minutes and it's free entrance. Positioned between Coliseum and Venice square, it's on the way from Termini station to the ancient Roman forum. Easy.

San Pietro in Vincoli

For other churches of this dedication, see St Peter ad Vincula .

San Pietro in Vincoli is a Roman Catholic titular church and minor basilica in Rome, Italy, best known for being the home of Michelangelo's statue of Moses, part of the tomb of Pope Julius II.

The Titulus S. Petri ad vincula was assigned on 20 November 2010, to Donald Wuerl. The previous Cardinal Priest of the basilica was Pío Laghi, who died on 11 January 2009.

Next to the church is hosted the Faculty of Engineering of La Sapienza University, in the former convent building. This is named "San Pietro in Vincoli" per antonomasia. The church is located on the Oppian Hill near Cavour metro station, a short distance from the Colosseum.
