Stop At: Arcibasilica di San Giovanni in Laterano, Piazza di Porta San Giovanni, 4, 00184 Rome Italy

Dedicated to John the Baptist and John the Evangelist, the Basilica of St. John Lateran is the first among the four major basilicas of Rome. It is also the cathedral of the bishop of Rome, the Pope, and is thus known as Omnium urbis et orbis Ecclesiarum Mater et Caput: "Cathedral of Rome and of the World."

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Scala Santa and Chapel of San Lorenzo, Piazza di San Giovanni in Laterano 14, 00184 Rome Italy

According to an ancient Christian tradition, Saint Helena (†335), the mother of Constantine, had the stairs transported from Pontius Pilate’s palace in Jerusalem to Rome.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, Piazza di Santa Maria Maggiore 42, 00185 Rome Italy

The Patriarchal Basilica of St. Mary Major reigns as an authentic jewel in the crown of Roman churches. Its beautiful treasures are of inestimable value, and represent the Church's role as the cradle of Christian artistic civilization in Rome.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Basilica Papale San Paolo Fuori le Mura, Piazzale di San Paolo 1, 00146 Rome Italy

The place where Christians venerated the memory of Saint Paul the Apostle, beheaded under Nero around 65-67 A.D. Above his grave, located along the Ostiense Way, Emperor Constantine built a Basilica.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: St. Peter's Basilica, Piazza di San Pietro, 00120 Vatican City Italy

St. Peter’s Basilica (if and when open): The Papal Basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican is the papal enclave within the city of Rome. St. Peter’s Basilica is a working church – the largest in the world – and is therefore free to enter. It’s inside the borders of Vatican City but the public are allowed just walk into it from Rome’s streets. Lines to get in to Michelangelo’s famous basilica, which snake round the grand cloisters around the outside of the square, can be extremely long, and though they move fast can appear rather daunting.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Catacombe San Sebastiano, Via Appia Antica 136, 00179 Rome Italy

The catacombs originated in Rome between the end of the second and the beginning of the third centuries.

Duration: 1 hour
