  • It was moving to see the devotion and faith of so many today. Problem was that those who took to the steps for praying did not seem to move fast enough and quite frankly prevented others to also share...  more »
  • A road ahead with faith and devotion, together with a crowd that he does with the same State of mind. For those who do not believe, that is at least worth seeing the acherotypa!

  • Holy stairs-part located across the street from the Basilica San Giovanni in Laterano Cathedral. Her story is presented in detail in guidebooks. For any Christian is one of the shrines. Some rise to the Holy stairs on their knees, others may get inside for parallel ladder which is richly decorated with frescoes with scenes from the old testament. Regardless of religiosity, this place is worth a visit and get spiritual and aesthetic pleasure.

  • The believers come from far away and crawl up the stairs while praying. The stairs come from Jerusalem. And Jesus has gone up while the blood dripped. A staircase and church that is unique.
  • Great place. Don't miss it! You have to put a wish and to go on the stairs in the knee.... try it! Great
  • It's a nice place to visit. It's the scale that Jesus passed on and some of his blood are found in there. God bless you all
  • I can only say...Why? Why this people are moved to go up on their knees? Obviously I'm not a believer, so it puzzles me to see the folly of others trying to replicate something they believed happened on those stairs. Folly as I mentioned.
  • A wonderful spiritual experience with the suffering Jesus!

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
