The Sacred Rome

As the official seat of the Catholic Church for over 2,000 years, Rome is home to stunning churches featuring with a unique blend of art, faith and history. This tour will show you some of Rome’s most important sacred sites, including the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore at the top of the Esquiline Hill, that is considered to be Rome’s largest church dedicated to the Virgin Mary, and the Basilica of St. John Lateran, which was the place where all popes used to be enthroned up until 1870. A tour of sacred Rome wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the 2nd-century Catacombs of San Callisto. Located along the Appian Way, one of the original seven roads leading into Rome, this was the burial site of thousands of Christians, martyrs and even popes, which earned them the nickname of “Little Vatican”.
