What people say

"Did you know there was an island right in the middle of Rome's center? Isola Tiberina is one of the smallest inhabited islands in the world and is about 20 minutes walking from the Colosseum. The island is home to the Basilica di San Bartolomeo, which dates back to the 10th century, and was built on an ancient temple. Inside the church, you can even see relics from Catholic martyrs that were chewed up by lions in the Colosseum. It is also home to a hospital and one restaurant. "
"Isola Tiberina is a charming little island in the middle of River Tiber. Though it’s interesting to see during the day as well (it’s home to the beautiful Basilica di San Bartolomeo), it’s at nighttime when this place truly comes to life."
"The island is known for its distinctive shape and is steeped in mythology and ancient legends."
