The Basilica of Saint John in Lateran is the oldest in Rome home to the Holy Steps, one of the city's most important pilgrimage sites. From there, you'll then head to the Basilica of Saint Mary Maggiore, in which you'll find an amazing collection of historic and religious artefacts. Admire the 5th-century mosaics and the remarkable Crypt of the Nativity. During the last part of your tour, you'll continue along the historic Appian way with your guide, passing the Chapel of Domine Quo Vadis before arriving at the ancient underground Catacombs.
