Activity details

PICK UP TIME Suggested 8:00 am or 1:00 pm (it is flexible and you can decide whenever during the day).

SAINT PAUL WITHIN THE WALLS This means that we will start from one of the most imposing Basilicas of Rome. After an explanation from your driver guide, you will be entering the Basilica and I promise you: You’ll be amazed by its beauty and grandeur! Generally, you will spend about 30 minutes here.

SAINT MARY THE MAJOR Another jewel, another magnificent Basilica. The first and largest one dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Legend has it that the Basilica was built on the very spot where snow fell on the night of the 5th of August of many years ago. Well right there a Roman patrician named John and his wife, constructed the Church dedicated to the Mary because that is what the Virgin told them to do in a vision that they had the night before that weird weather event occurred, considering the usual 90 degrees of the Roman summers!

SAINT JOHN IN LATERAN Off to the major of all Basilicas after Saint Peter’s! This had been the seat of the Popes for many years and hosts wonderful works of art and amazing sculptures of the greatest artists who operated in Rome throughout the entire Renaissance. Its cloister is simply magnificent as well! After your driver-guide gives you all the necessary explanations, you’ll need approx 40 minutes.

HOLY CROSS IN JERUSALEM For the most devoted, this Basilica represents the icing on the cake! Almost unknown by many, this one is for sure the most intriguing of all. Little treasures linked to the Passion of Jesus are kept in here: from the thorns of His crown to a vertical piece of the cross, from the wooden plaque with the inscription “I.N.R.I” to the most important copy of the Holy Shroud!
