Le tre BASILICHE dei PAPI

The Basilica of St John in Lateran

In sintesi

Questo Tour comprende:

  • San Giovanni
  • San Paolo fuori le mura
  • Santa Maria Maggiore

Note

Solo Tour privati

Avrete sicuramente già sentito parlare del Giubileo, detto anche anno Santo, una tradizione cominciata nel 1300, durante la quale era possibile ottenere l’indulgenza plenaria visitando almeno una delle 4 grandi basiliche romane. Attraverso la visita delle chiese i pellegrini cercavano la remissione dei peccati e camminavano per chilometri e chilometri da un luogo di martirio e penitenza all’altro.

Ispirato da questi lunghi pellegrinaggi di devozione, San Filippo Neri, nella seconda metà del Cinquecento, decise di organizzare la celebre visita delle Sette Chiese di Rome: oltre venticinque chilometri a piedi in due giornate comprendo, oltre alle quattro Basiliche patriarcali (San Pietro, San Paolo fuori le mura, San Giovanni in Laterano e Santa Maria Maggiore), altre tre chiese che conservano celebri reliquie: San Lorenzo fuori le mura, Santa Croce in Gerusalemme e San Sebastiano fuori le mura.

Ecco di cosa stiamo parlando! Non soltanto un tour ma un percorso che ci rimette sulle orme dei pellegrini del passato! Certo, oggi il tragitto è molto meno faticoso di una volta, ma non meno affascinante e denso di significati.

La visita alle più importanti chiese di Roma era d’obbligo per chi arrivava in città ed è ancora oggi una delle cose più interessanti da scoprire, non soltanto per ragioni esclusivamente religiose ma anche per godere delle bellezze artistiche e archeologiche che questi luoghi-capolavoro celano.

Quali delle famose “sette chiese” vedremo nel nostro tour delle Basiliche di Roma?

Ne abbiamo scelte tre, le maggiori, tralasciando la Basilica di San Pietro che è normalmente inclusa nei nostri tour del Vaticano o della quale potrete richiedere un tour dedicato.

Ecco quali sono:

  • San Giovanni in Laterano
  • Santa Maria Maggiore
  • San Paolo Fuori le Mura

Importante
  • I siti religiosi sono soggetti a chiusure occasionali in presenza di cerimonie religiose. In questi casi forniremo agli ospiti un tour esteso di altre Basiliche o un'alternativa appropriata, perché in questo caso non siamo in grado di fornire rimborsi o sconti.
  • Codice di abbigliamento: ginocchia, spalle e schiena devono essere coperte.
  • A causa delle maggiori misure di sicurezza in molte attrazioni, alcune linee possono formarsi anche nei tour con accesso "Salta la coda" o "No Wait".
