Church Special Tour

We will discover the true holy cradle of baby Jesus kept, as a precious relic, in the church of Santa Maria Maggiore. Under a beautiful golden ceiling – unique case in the world – we will also discover the most beautiful depiction of the Nativity, masterpiece of the medieval sculptor Arnolfo di Cambio. A great opportunity to relive the Christmas traditions!
Then we’ll walk in the Suburra, the oldest district of Rome, in order to discover the ancient Rome pagan customs of Christmas.
