Christian Rome Orientation Tour


You will meet your driver at ship dock or at tender mooring; he will wait for you handling the Onirikos arrival board. He driver will escort you to Rome wehre you will meet your professional English-speaking guide.

Rome is a city that is rich in history and has remained one of the most visited cities by Christians from around the globe. From Caesar and Pontius Pilate, to St. Paul and the Apostles, you will find that this city allows you to walk in the footsteps of the Saints. These days we will combine some of Rome’s most significant and incredible churches that have inspired pilgrims and visitors for centuries, with top historic sites, monuments, piazzas, and museums that you expect to see in the Eternal City.

The guide will escort you to S. Pietro in Vincoli. It was first built in 432-440 to house a portion of the chains that held Saint Peter where he was imprisoned in Jerusalem. Here you will also have the honor of viewing Michelangelo's Moses that was completed 1515. Then you will reach the Basilica of St. John in Lateran, cathedral of Rome and of the world, famous for its baroque and medieval masterpieces kept intact inside of it. You will see the Holy Stairs.  According to tradition, the staircases were part of the praetorium of Pilate in Jerusalem, hence were sanctified by the footsteps of Jesus Christ during his Passion. You will visit the Church of Santa Maria in Palmis. According to legend, it was here that St. Peter, fleeing Rome to escape Emperor Nero's persecution, had a vision of Jesus and asked him, "Domine, quo vadis?"—"Lord, where are you going?" Jesus's answer, "To Rome, to be crucified anew," persuaded Peter that he had to return to the city and accept his own martyrdom. Before lunch you will also visit the Christian catacombs.

In the afternoon  you’ll visit the world famous Musei Vaticani and the most important symbol of Christianity: St. Peter Basilica.

After the visit your driver will escort you to the Port.

About Us

We offer unique access to some of the most unavailable & undiscovered experiences one can imagine. A Milan shopping experience in a fashion designer’s showroom? A private dinner in Venice on the roof terrace of Peggy Guggenheim? Quad bike trekking on the active Etna volcano with an extreme-sport guide? Whatever your client can dream, we can deliver. We focus on designing non-Googleable experiences—watching the Palio di Siena horse race from a hot-air balloon; visiting the private castle where the Godfather trilogy was shot. Kids love visiting an ice cream factory, while big kids clamor for a chance to drive a Maserati or Lamborghini.

Visit to Excavation underneath the Vatican • Truffle Hunt in Tuscany or Piemonte • Vasari Corridor in Florence • Private visit to the Sistine Chapel
