What you will visit:
During your Private Tour you will enjoy landmarks such as:

  • Saint John Lateran
  • The Holy Stairs
  • Saint Mary Major
  • Saint Paul Outside the Walls
  • St. Peters Basilica (if and when open)
  • Christian Catacombs on the Ancient Appian Way

St. John Lateran:
Dedicated to John the Baptist and John the Evangelist, the Basilica of St. John Lateran is the first among the four major basilicas of Rome.
It is also the cathedral of the bishop of Rome, the Pope, and is thus known as Omnium urbis et orbis Ecclesiarum Mater et Caput: "Cathedral of Rome and of the World."
The Holy Stairs:
According to an ancient Christian tradition, Saint Helena (335), the mother of Constantine, had the stairs transported from Pontius Pilates palace in Jerusalem to Rome.
St Mary Major:
The Patriarchal Basilica of St. Mary Major reigns as an authentic jewel in the crown of Roman churches. Its beautiful treasures are of inestimable value, and represent the Church's role as the cradle of Christian artistic civilization in Rome.
St Paul Outside the Walls:
The place where Christians venerated the memory of Saint Paul the Apostle, beheaded under Nero around 65-67 A.D. Above his grave, located along the Ostiense Way, Emperor Constantine builded a Basilica.
St. Peters Basilica:
The Papal Basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican is the papal enclave within the city of Rome.
St. Peters Basilica is a working church the largest in the world and is therefore free to enter. Its inside the borders of Vatican city but the public are allowed just walk into it from Romes streets.
Lines to get in to Michelangelos famous basilica, which snake round the grand cloisters around the outside of the square, can be extremely long, and though they move fast can appear rather daunting.
Christian Catacombs:
The catacombs originated in Rome between the end of the second and the beginning of the third centuries.
