After first exploring the Piazza San Pietro we enter the basilica, birthplace to the mightiest religious power and culture. Upon entering you will immediately be thrust into one of the largest and most inspiring churches in the world, where majestic artworks and incredible architecture are everywhere you look.
For centuries Rome has been a place of Christian pilgrimage, from the 1st century AD until the present age. Traces of the primitive Christian Church are found all over the city. On this unique itinerary we follow the development of the early Christian community with visits to Rome’s most sacred sites to see the art and architecture that pioneered the way for what became the Western World’s most powerful cultural heritage – the Papacy.
