The Roamin' Roman

Benvenuto! You have happened upon the blog of a wandering Catholic American college student studying for a year in Rome, the Eternal City. You will find here my pontifications, ruminations, reflections, images, and ponderings on my life in Rome. Ciao!

In this basilica is kept the stone from the Quo Vadis church, site of the apocrophal meeting of Jesus and St. Peter, and the stone is reputed to have the footprint of Christ's embedded in it. I don't know, you can't really see it very well. But ok. :)

    The stone with the footprint is in the floor of the Quo Vadis Chapel, also on the Appian Way about a 10 minute walk closer to the city.

    The stone was originally at the Quo Vadis church, but was moved to the basilica of St. Sebastian. There is now a copy of it back at Quo Vadis that you can see better, which is what you are referring to. Definitely worth a visit, but I still say that it is hard to make out precisely...
