Santa Prassede
While the showy Santa Maria Maggiore might get more attention (it's a favorite of Pope Francis), the much smaller—but still lovely—Santa Prassede across the street will reward you with magnificent golden mosaics from the medieval era in the Saint Zeno Chapel. Take note of the intricate designs of the marble floors; they were laid by a guild of 12th-century artisans known as Cosmati.
