The All Saints Church is a great choice for weddings due to its picturesque location near the Spanish Steps.
- Located in the Campo Marzio neighborhood, on the central Via del Babuino, Chiesa di Ognissanti is the main gathering place of Anglican and Old Catholic communities in Rome. A rare and interesting example of Roman influences in an 18th-century Neo-Gothic style, All Saint s Church was erected in 1882 by English architect George Edmond Street, and completed by Italian artists Vincenzo Cannizzaro and Pio Barocci. Its spire was added in 1937. Today, the church is part of Churches Together in Rome, the city's anglophone religious congregation. It also participates in the activities of several religious movements, such as Sant Egidio and Focolari. One can also attend music concerts orchestrated by the Accademia d'Opera Italiana.
