Move to the Appian Way and explore the Church of Quo Vadis, where you will find amazing evidence of the life of the two Saints. Visit the Catacombs where the early Christians were buried, even if persecuted by the Romans.

Take a break for lunch (own expense) before heading to the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls. Explore the Basilica built on top of the tomb of St Paul.
