Full description
The oldest nuclei of the Roman Catacombs date back to the end of the second century. To solve the problem of space, the catacombs were built underground with tunnels on various levels.

The Lateran complex consists of several high-interest sites: the Basilica, the Cloister, the Treasure Museum, and the Baptistery. Most importantly, the Holy Stairs which lead to the private Papal Chapel. Your special ticket allows you to easily access the complex and visit all the points of interest in around 2 hours with a multilingual audio-guide system.

Begin by visiting the Basilica with the Cloister and the Treasure Museum, then proceed outside the church to the Baptistery located in the square behind. You can then complete your tour by visiting the building of the Holy Stairs, located on the right of the basilica, and admire the Chapel of the Sancta Sanctorum. If you only have one hour, you can visit the basilica and its cloister first, followed by the Holy Stairs and Sancta Sanctorum.
