Arrival and transfer to hotel in Rome
In the 16th century the tradition of 7 churches pilgrimages was revived. The approx. 25 km long route is usually walked. It begins in San Lorenzo fuori le Mure and ends in St. Peter'sBasilica.Since, for many pilgrims, St.Peter's Basilica is the destination of their journey, we recommend this order. Adolph Kolping, however, went this way theother way round.
On Wednesdays there is usually thePope's General Audience where we offer you the unique opportunity toparticipate. In the afternoon you descend into a catacomb. There you will beoffered a living image of Christianity in the first centuries.
The traces of early Christianity areparticularly visible in Rome. The Colosseum, San Clemente, SS Cosma e Damianoin the Forum and the "dungeon" of St. Peter and St. Paul bear witnessto this. In the evening you will take part in the prayer and meeting of theCommunity of Sant'Egidio in S. Maria in Trastevere. This community cares in aspecial way for the poor and is a living member of the Roman Church.
