These marble stairs are a fascinating tourist spot and one definitely worth seeing! Afterwards, visit the Archbasilica of St John Lateran, the Cathedral of Rome. Explore the Cathedral and the art which lies within the magnificent architecture of this beautiful building. There are also papal tombs within the Basilica, which are available for viewing.Proceed down the ancient Appian Way, passing the marvellous chapel of Domine Quo Vadis, before arriving at the Catacombs of Rome. Travel through these fascinating catacombs, the ancient underground cemeteries used by Christians when land was scarce. See the burial sites which have been there since the 2nd Century AD and have survived all of this time. Discover the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, one the first Christian churches dedicated to the Virgin Mary. This 5th century relic is considered to be the largest of the 26 churches dedicated to the Virgin in Rome.Built over a pagan temple, under the order of a Roman Pope, the Basilica, slowly took its form over the centuries, forming the church into a striking example of architecture. Inside, admire fine examples of early Christian mosaics, Roman window panels and her beloved bell tower, one of the most elegant and tallest in Rome. This tour is for those who are interesting in the history and the culture of Rome, particularly during the time of the Roman era and the Renaissance period, and is a fascinating insight into the Christian way of life which has survived for nearly two thousand years.
