The Basilica of St Maria Maggiore is one of Rome's four major basilicas, and was built 1,600 years ago. You'll visit its baroque interior, where glittering 5th–century mosaics are one of the major attractions. Continue to the holy stairs, the Scala Santa, which pilgrims ascend on their knees in a display of piety.

Then enter the Basilica of St John the Baptist, the first Christian basilica built in the city and, to this day, its official cathedral. As well as spectacular Renaissance artwork, the Basilica boasts one of the most beautiful cloisters in the city, and a museum containing a considerable collection of relics and papal artifacts. Complete your tour with a visit to the network of galleries and tunnels that make up the catacombs—the last resting place for nine popes and almost half a million early Christians.

Note: Please dress respectfully for visiting religious monuments; local custom requires covering knees and shoulder. Comfortable walking shoes recommended.
