This is a 4-hour tour aimed at showing you the principal Christian sites, including the most important churches and The Catacombs. We will visit Saint Peter’s Basilica first, then Saint Peter in Chains where Michelangelo’s masterpiece ”The Moses” is still well preserved. The tour will then continue on to the Basilica of St. Mary Major, built on the Esquiline Hill in 352 A.D., the Basilica of St. John in Lateran, the mother of all cathedrals in Rome and the world.
Afterwards, we will go to the Holy Stairs, climbed by Jesus Christ to reach Pilate's Palace. From here we will drive again, crossing Piazza San Giovanni, passing through Porta di San Sebastiano until the Ancient Appian Way, where we will find the Chapel of "Domine Quo Vadis". We will finally arrive at the Catacombs of St. Callixtus, where the visit will take about 45 minutes (on Wednesdays the visit will be at the Catacombs of St. Domitilla). On the way back, you will have a view of the Baths of Caracalla.
