Climbing the escala sancta on my knees and seeing the sacred table. Seeing part of the Holy Cross, the Nail and thorns on Jesus’ crown

Fun and facts with Giorgio
It ended up being a private one as only the three of us were there for the tour. Giorgio, our guide, took his time to show and tell us information we did not know before. It was a moving experience going through the Cathedral and the steps of the Scala Santa. He was on time to meet us.

A must Do. Now. Don’t wait.
These three sites have been on my list for years and despite 4 previous trips to Rome I was not able to see them. The wait seem to make it sweeter. It was an amazing 2.5 hrs with Francesco who was an outstanding guide and garnered invitations to stay with us in Texas as a result. Climbing the stairs on my knees was incredibly powerful as I repeated the traditional Jewish Prayer on each step. I was sobbing in gratitude by the halfway point. The holy relics and churches were stunning and I especially found the full size copy of the Shroud of Turin (gift from Turin) amazing. Please do this tour. Please ask for Francesco. Please allow God to open your heart and mind during your time in these holy places.
