Papal basilicas and Catacombs guided tour
Basilicas of Rome and Catacombs Tour
Guided tour to some of the papal basilicas in the center of Rome. We will visit the important Basilica of St. John Lateran, cathedral of Rome, and the famous Holy Stairs, these are the steps that led to the Praetorium of Pontius Pilate in Jerusalem and were transferred to Rome. Today it is the goal of many pilgrims that climb the stairs on their knees to honor the Passion of Christ. We will continue with our tour in the Basilica of Santa Maria Maior, also called Our Lady of the Snows, because it was built in the place where there was a vision of the Virgin in a snowed hill.
Finally, we will visit one of the catacombs of Rome, a place that served as a refuge for Christians during their persecution and which they used to bury their families and express their faith.
