Highlights include visits to the Vatican with its Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Cathedral; the impressive monuments of ancient Rome (Colosseum, Pantheon, Arch of Constantine, Arch of Titus, Forum, Catacombs, Altar of Peace, and Mamertine Prison—where, according to tradition, Paul and Peter were held); Hadrian’s Villa; the city of Pompeii, preserved by Mt. Vesuvius’ eruption; Paestum with its two best intact Greek temples in the world; and St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice.
