Take a pilgrimage to see 3 of Rome’s Jubilee Basilicas on a 3.5-hour tour of St. Paul Outside the Walls and more. Go to the Holy Doors, only opened every 25 years during the Holy Year to welcome pilgrims who wish to gain plenary indulgence.
What to Expect
Make a pilgrimage to Rome’s Papal basilicas in the Jubilee Year, and walk through the Holy Doors to gain plenary indulgence.
Meet your private guide at a centrally located meeting point. Then, go to the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls (San Paolo Fuori le Mura). According to tradition, the basilica is the site of the tomb of St. Paul, one of the most significant martyrs in the Christian faith.
Continue to the Archbasilica of St. John the Lateran (Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano). The Archbasilica is the oldest church in the west, and ranked above all other Christian churches, including St. Peter's. From there, it’s a short walk (or taxi ride) to the Basilica of St. Mary Major (Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore), the largest Catholic Marian church in Rome.
