Taking a stroll in ancient Rome...

to the tomb of St. Peter? well, not as impossible as you might think!

Pilgrims at the Tomb of Peter. As in Ancient Rome

Ten meters beneath the Vatican basilica, it is possible to walk the same path that led to the tomb of the apostle, among rows of Roman tombs that have emerged, intact, from the excavations. The latest restoration was presented just a few days ago. A marvel of art, history, faith

  1. I would love to go to Rome! I have never been across the pond, but a pilgrimage would sure be a good reason to make the trip. I am actually considering Knock, Ireland. It's supposed to be the toughest pilgrimage in the world - 3 days of all night prayer, fasting and walking barefoot on the rocks. I'm trying to get my sister (Seeking Jesus) interested in coming with me.
