The Walks Inside Rome team
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 the Emperor Constantine declared Christianity legal across the Roman Empire, Christianity was leaving its mark on Roman culture. After the fall of the Roman Empire, the Pope became the most prominent figure in Rome and Christianity became the glue that kept its population together. Embark on a journey to discover this fascinating history by visiting some of the most stunning Churches in Rome.
See the mother church for the Roman Catholics: 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. Admire the opulent baptistery where Constantine was baptized, decorated with ancient mosaics and beautiful paintings framed in lavish and elegant gilded frames.
