12dec17--A Thank You to our host, B & B, GLAM SM MAGGIORE , for sponsoring this 'live cam' view on the façade of the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, one of the four papal basilicas of Rome, majestic.
It's back. I was wondering where this camera disappeared to?
This is a MUST hit basilica in Rome, while is big outside, wait until you get inside, because you'll be blown away by the dimensions, grandiose, and history. I went to this place on January 2017, stayed at a great B&B near by (Circle Maggiore), only 3 tram stops from it.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROMA !!! 21ST OF APRIL
Janey and Audrey, glad you found the information useful, I have "attended" some beautiful services.
Truly amazing being able to see the service taking place, thanks Linda for the information re Vatican tv.
Linda S. - Thank you for posting about Vatican TV. I was able to watch a service being held. Listening to mass and singing -- beautiful! Sweet-faced little children singing in the choir are like angels.
You're welcome Teddy, if you go into Vatican t.v. Live, they often broadcast the special services attended by the Pope, and you can find his schedule for coming events. Really interesting to see the services and the inside of these magnificent churches.
Thanks so much Linda,I kind of thought that was something like that. I watched and watched, but couldn't sit here any longer, so I didn't see him leave, or come for that matter. I have been there many time and never saw a crowd standing there in line for so long. It was hours!
Teddy, the Pope was at a service, which is why there were crowds outside.
Hi everyone. Anyone know what is happening at the Basilica today around 6pm, as there seems to be many police everywhere and they are not letting people inside. There is a long line waiting. Hope everything and everyone is okay.
Hey Ray, you are welcome! Have fun - it's a beautiful church and an interesting walk.
Thanks Rick! Very useful info. I think I'm going to take the metro there and walk back. Thanks again.
