Embark on a journey through the history of Christianity by studying some of the earliest mosaics in Rome. Accompanied by an expert English-speaking guide you will explore some important churches and other lesser known gems that house ancient masterpieces. Indeed, the first Christian churches were decorated with stunning mosaics: small pieces of marble, glass and colored stones were combined and blended with gold foils to make a decorative artwork. Set off from the Oppian Hill and walk down via Labicana: enjoy a stunning view of the Colosseum and walk by the remains of Emperor Nero’s Domus Aurea. Stop at Santa Prassede Church that houses the San Zeno Chapel, adorned with impressive Byzantine mosaics. Then reach Santa Maria Maggiore. Before entering the church, admire the mosaics by Filippo Turati located in the square. Inside the church you will see mosaics from the 5th century featuring scenes from the Old Testament and the Nativity. Stroll through via Urbana: there, in the heart of the Monti quarter, you will visit the church of Santa Pudenziana, where there are some of the most ancient mosaics in Rome, featuring Santa Prassede and Santa Pudenziana.
