Rome is the world center of Catholicism and here are some of the most precious religious sites in the world. Regardless of your religious beliefs, this private tour will take you on a fascinating journey back in time to the dawn of the history of Christianity on the traces left by the Apostle St.Paul.
Accompanied by your expert guide, you will discover early Christian Rome by peeling back layers and millennia of history as you descend into the underground burial chambers known as the “Catacombs” to a time when Christianity was considered a cult, whose members were executed as heretics and buried as martyrs.
Next you will discover Paul was executed and where in the 7th century the Abbey of the Three Fountains was built. The abbey is run by the Cistercian monks belonging to the Trappist order who are also very famous for the production of traditional Trappist beer and delicious chocolate.
Three churches can be seen within the boundaries of the Abbey and the tradition recounts that during the beheaded of St. Paul, three springs gushed out at each spot touched from his head.
Following the life of St. Paul you will then visit the Papal Basilica of San Paolo Fuori, the largest after St. Peter's. Once inside, you will feel the immensity of the structure and the special sensation of being in the presence of the burial place of the great Apostle of the Gentiles.
