Full description
This eye-opening and exciting guided tour takes you to the principal places associated with Sts Peter & Paul in Rome. Follow in their footsteps to see the same things they saw, and tread the same cobbles they trod all of those centuries below. Begin your tour at the Church of Santa Maria in Via Lata, the house in which St Paul was imprisoned for many months while in Rome and from where he wrote many of his epistles. From there, continue with your expert guide to the Mamertine Prison which was the ancient Roman prison in which both St Peter & Paul were held.  After learning about the history, head to the Church of St Peter in Chains which holds the very chains that bound St Peter and which is also home to the masterpiece of Michelangelo - the statue of Moses. End your tour at the magnificent Papal Major Basilica of St Paul Outside the Walls - now a Benedictine monastery - where St Paul's body was laid after his beheading by the Romans.

This was the tour we were most excited about and Tom did not disappoint. We went to places that the other tours don’t normally go and received information that other tourists did not. We opted to go with this company because of its faith-based perspective and that is what was given to us. There was even a time that I noticed someone listening to Tom and the knowledge he was passing on to us so I was asked if I was in a paid tour. I am sure they hoped they were part of our group. Thank you, Tom, for making our vacation meaningful.
