Saint Paul, the Apostle, original name Saul of Tarsus, was one of the leaders of the first generation of Christians, often considered to be the second most important person in the history of Christianity.
His surviving letters have had enormous influence on subsequent Christianity and secure his place as one of the greatest religious leaders of all time.
Accompanied by an expert guide you will visit the places connected to St. Paul’s life. Start your tour at the Basilica of San Paolo Fuori le Mura, a church filled with a sacred atmosphere that houses his shrine.
St. Paul came to Rome in 61 AD when the Roman court sentenced him to death for professing his faith. During this tour you will visit the place where this sentence was carried out and the site of his martyrdom - the "palude Salvia" - at the Abbazia delle Tre Fontane, today a quiet and peaceful monastery in the heart of Rome.
The last stop of your tour will be the Carcere Mamertino, the oldest prison in Rome, where the Apostles St. Paul and St. Peter were imprisoned for 9 months and where, according to legend, they miraculously made water appear in order to baptize the guards.
