What makes this tour special

In this three hour tour, your expert local guide will direct you to some of the sites of Saint Paul’s martyrdom. You will be met at either your hotel, or at a prearranged meeting point, where you will get a glimpse of the suffering that one of the first followers of Christ experienced.

Saint Paul is one of the most important Christian preachers and one of the religion’s most dramatic martyrs. He lived in an age of religious persecution in the days of the Roman Emperor Nero. Nero was renowned for being a brutal ruler, killing many of the early Christians, who subsequently became martyrs.

What you'll see

Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls
This church was built over the burial place of St. Paul, and is one of the four most important basilicas in Rome.
Mamertine Prison
Known in antiquity as the Tullianum, the dungeons were used to hold Saint Paul before he was beheaded.
