Tour description

A captivating guided tour of Rome’s major basilicas which tracing the important role Christianity has played in the culture and history of the Eternal City.

Even before Emperor Constantine declared Christianity legal across the Roman Empire, Christianity was leaving its mark on Roman culture. On this tour you will visit some of Rome's most famous basilicas and holy sites and learn about the important role that Christianity has played in Rome through centuries. 

On our journey we'll visit some of Rome's oldest and most important ecclesiastical sites, such as St John Lateran which holds the throne of the Pope of Rome and offers a unique blend of different artistic styles. Visit the famous Holy Stairs, which Jesus climbed when going to face his trial by Pontious Pilate. Discover the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore, one of the oldest in Rome, which preserves some of the oldest mosaics in Rome with scenes from the Old and New Testament, Miracle-working Icons, Worshipped Relics, and a wealth of other artworks.

This tour can be customized and specialized. We have more than 20 years of experience in organizing tours in Rome. If there is a certain basilica you would like to see or aspect of Christianity you would like to focus on, you are welcome to specify this to us.
