I too will be in Rome for Easter week. I'm excited as I have never been in Rome during Easter.

"On Good Friday around 9: 15 p.m., the Pope will lead a solemn torchlit procession, the Via Crucis, from the Colosseum up the Monte Palatino, reenacting the 14 Stations of the Cross, from Jesus' death sentence to the placement of his body in the tomb.

Pope Benedict XVI carries a large wooden cross part of the way, and at every station he offers a brief prayer. At the final station he also gives a speech, linking the re-enactment to current events.

Tens of thousands of the faithful gather with torches and lights to follow this solemn procession."

The above is from the Vatican Web site.

In addition to the Way of the Cross at the Colosseum in the evening on Good Friday, there is a mass at St Peter's at 5:00 pm.
