Why you should go

This full-day trip will take you on a tour of the most important places of Christian religion: we will start from the very roots and finish with the residence of modern Christianity in the Vatican. Walk through the narrow corridors of the first Catacombs and later admire the splendor of St. Peter’s Basilica, the point of reference for more than a billion Christians today.

Highlights

  • Explore the sacred places of Christian religion
  • Discover the Catacombs built by first Christians for they secret encounters
  • Visit the Basilica of St. Clement’s
  • Visit St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest church in the world and the residence of the Pope

What shall I see

A not-to-be-missed full-day combined itinerary that follows in the steps of Christianity, from its founding to its definitive consecration. On this Catacombs and Vatican Tour, you’ll visit the places where the first Christians came together to pray and where they buried their dead — from when they were ostracized by the dominating pagan population — but you will also see highlights of Vatican City with its magnificent display of wealth and beauty. The contrast is, at first appearance, so striking that one may wonder if this was the outcome that the first martyrs had imagined when they died defending their beliefs. Could the first popes even imagine the splendor and the exhibition of glory that their successors achieved in the following centuries? And how can we, contemporary men and women, understand the course of events leading to such a result. This is why we created the combined Vatican and Catacombs itinerary, which starts off by exploring the underground web of intricate tunnels where the first Christians gathered to celebrate their religious services, and ends in the very heart of Christendom, the point of reference for over a billion Catholics, the Basilica of St Peter’s. It is the world’s largest church, and certainly the greatest one for its parade of invaluable artworks and triumphant representations of the divine. To gain a fuller experience of these sites one should pay attention, not just to the ripe fruits hanging from the tree, but also to the very roots of the plants that thrust deep into the ground. From light to darkness, and from dark to light, means to acknowledge the double-faced complexity of the culture that produced the art that we so admire. Because one should pick the fruit in the brightest hour of a day, but never forget that the fruits’ life comes from the sun in the sky, as well as from the roots beneath the ground.
