Mosaic Walk

After our first mosaic experience at San Clemente we wanted more. Much more. Therefore, we sought out any and all churches in Rome with notable mosaics. The first, a church called San Prassede, was tucked into a quiet neighborhood that took us some time to find, but was worth the effort.

Thanks for reading.
