What to expect

Tour the Lateran Complex with an expert guide to find out more about one of the holiest places in Rome and in the whole world!

Both religious and art relevance make the Lateran Complex one of the not-to-be-missed places in Rome. The archbasilica also called the 'Mother of all churches', is one of the four papal basilicas of Rome and one of Borromini’s masterpieces. It will fascinate you with its massive mosaics and imposing marble statues covering both the facade and the inside.

Then, visit the Holy Stairs, a pilgrimage destination for Catholics from all over the world. On the top of the stair, a window protected by thick glass and a lattice allows you to observe the interior of the Sancta Sanctorum, the private chapel of the Popes, still considered one of the most sacred places in the world. Conclude your tour admiring the largest standing ancient Egyptian obelisk in the world and the Lateran Baptistery, which never ceased to perform its function since the IV century.
