    Stop At: Basilica di Santa Prassede, Via di Santa Prassede 9/A, Rome Italy

    Santa Prassede, a few steps from S. Maria Maggiore, is a small jewel, a church rebuilt in various eras on an original baptistery that the Saint, who lived in the 1st century and, according to sources, baptized by St. Paul, had placed on land owned by his family, where the chapel of San Zenone and the column of the Flagellation of Christ stand out

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Arcibasilica di San Giovanni in Laterano, Piazza di Porta San Giovanni, 4, 00184 Rome Italy

    the Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano takes its name from the rich Lateran family who owned the land on which Constantine had the first church in the world built, also known as Mater Ecclesiae. Originally dedicated to Christ the Savior, it later received the dedication to SS. John the Baptist and Evangelist. Seat of the Papacy until the Unification of Italy, it is its cathedral for Rome, with the Episcopal Chair of the Bishop, the Holy Father.

    Stop At: Scala Santa and Chapel of San Lorenzo, Piazza di San Giovanni in Laterano 14, 00184 Rome Italy

    The Scala Santa is, according to tradition, composed of 28 steps that the mother of the Emperor Constantine, St. Helen, brought back to Rome from Jerusalem along with many other relics. An extreme place of worship, you have to go up exclusively with your knees, reciting prayers at each step, to then reach the Sancta Sanctorum Chapel, the private chapel of the Popes during their centuries-old stay at the Lateran.

    Stop At: Battistero Lateranense, Piazza di San Giovanni in Laterano 4, 00184 Rome Italy

    The Lateran Baptistery is an early Christian place of worship, with a central plan, which over time inspired the construction of other baptisteries. Dating back to the 4th century, commissioned by Constantine, it seems to have been the place where his mother, S. Elena, was baptized. Restored several times over the centuries, it still bears many medieval mosaics.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Basilica di Santa Croce in Gerusalemme, Piazza di Santa Croce in Gerusalemme 12, 00185 Rome Italy
