24,689 reviews
Home to some of the world’s most iconic paintings, the Vatican Museums attract huge crowds. Save yourself hours of waiting by booking this skip-the-line tour of the Sistine Chapel, Raphael’s Rooms, and St. Peter’s Basilica (when the option is selected) in Rome. Early morning and evening tour options mean you can explore the complex during far less crowded time slots. Upgrade to a small-group tour limited to 10 people for a more personalized experience.

Peaceful place worth visiting. Featuring legends, saints, beer, etc. Aside historical and religious reasons (site of Paul's martyrdom legend), they brew and sell excellent trappist beer.

As beer lovers we visited Tre Fontane for multiple reasons. As one of the genuine Trappist breweries this place is worth a visit, although it is important to emphasize that the brewerie itself can't be visited. Nevertheless, Tre Fontane is a very special place in itself because of the religious history. This monastery is believed to be the place where St. Paul was beheaded by order of the Emperor Nero. Also from an architecture perspective, the place is interesting. Belonging to the monastery are three separate churches. For information concerning the abbey and gifts theré a gift shop on the site. The people in the shop are very friendly and really willing to help you and inform you about the monastery.

Beautiful church and great history of St Paul. We were able to see everything in about 45 minutes. It’s got a cafe and two gift shops.

This is one of Rome's hidden gems. Walk from Laurentina ( 15 mins) and enter a stillness which is hard to find in Rome. This is an active Monastery and you can join the worship, visit the place where StPaul was martyred - or just enjoy the beauty and the peace. Check opening hours. Closed lunchtime. Just across the road is the Sanctuary of Tre Fontaine, where Mary appeared in the 1940's. Again a lovely calm place. I think it opens at 8.00 am. Check. Nice coffee stand just by the gate!

Take Metro B to Laurentina, and walk 20 min (or take the bus) to the Abbazia delle Tre Fontane. The place is very peaceful, and there are three churches/chapels to commemorate the imprisonment and execution of St Paul, which - according to the legend - took place right here. Great place for church history nerds, e.g. the prison cell of Paul himself. On your way back, cross the road and walk up to the sanctuary of the Vergine della Rivelazione, where Virgin Mary still performs miracles, according to devote believers. Walk into the cave and see thousands of objects and greetings left by grateful devotees.
