Choose our St. Paul and his life Private Tour in Rome and follow in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul of Tarso, one of Jesus’ twelve apostles. He had a strong connection with the city of Rome and he visited it more than once. We will assign you a licensed, knowledgeable, private guide that will tour around with you for 4 hours and a private driver that will escort you on board of a luxury vehicle to the several steps of this journey.
St. Paul visited many cities in his life: Rome is one of the most important he traveled to. Not only because he came to Rome more than once, but also because he was imprisoned here in the Mamertine Prison, together with St. Peter, before their execution took place. After your driver and guide will pick you up from your Hotel in central Rome, Mamertine Prison will be your first stop.
Following on the itinerary you will be taken to the Abbey of the Three Fountains, now a beautiful monastery, oasis of peace and quiet, that time place where St. Paul has been killed. The Church of St. Paul, within the complex of the Abbey, is exactly the spot where he was beheaded, after being bound to a column. The reason why he was beheaded instead of crucified is because he was a roman citizen, and roman citizens were allowed to a fast death. Legend says that the name Abbey of the Three Fountains derives from the fact that his head, once being cut, bounced to the grounds 3 times before stopping, causing a spring of water at each leap.
Then you will proceed to the Basilica of St.Paul Outside the Walls, where the tomb of the apostle is located.
The last part of your tour will bring you to the ancient Church called St.Paul alla Regola, where St.Paul wrote part of his letters to Rome: this room has been later converted into a chapel.
