History

For more than 1,700 years the Lateran complex has been a key player in the history of the Church. You will be able to experience this place thanks to an itinerary that, passing through the main rooms of the Apostolic Palace, will open the doors of the private apartment of the Bishop of Rome, finally arriving in the Lateran Basilica.

Starting from the ancient Patriarchium of the 4th century A.D. to the present day, we will throw open the doors of history to allow you to enter a complex that has marked the development of the Church and beyond.
