After being picked up from your centrally located hotel, begin your day with a visit to two of the most important Basilicas in the world: the Basilicas of Saint John in Lateran and Saint Mary Maggiore.
The Basilica of Saint John in Lateran is the oldest in Rome home to the Holy Steps, one of the city's most important pilgrimage sites. From there, you'll then head to the Basilica of Saint Mary Maggiore, in which you'll find an amazing collection of historic and religious artefacts. Admire the 5th-century mosaics and the remarkable Crypt of the Nativity. During the last part of your tour, you'll continue along the historic Appian way with your guide, passing the Chapel of Domine Quo Vadis before arriving at the ancient underground Catacombs. Explore these remarkable subterranean cemeteries, some of which were started in the 2nd century.
