This is a globe of Rome and includes many sites of antiquity and many sites of great interest to Catholics, including - of course! - many from Vatican City - and other famous Catholic Churches from around the Eternal City.
- Santa Maria Maggiore
- Piazza San Pietro
- Cappella Sistena
- Porta Santo Spirito
- San Pietro in Vincoli
- Santa Maria in Cosmedin
- Santa Maria in Trastevere
- Santa Cecila in Trastevere
- Via Di Porta Angelica
- Santa Bibiana
and many other famous sites including the Colosseum and others.
The globe has people, cafés, priests, nuns, praying pilgrims, tourists, cardinals and even a Swiss guard and the Pope at the window in St Peter's Square!
It really is a wonderful item and also comes with a small booklet explaining all the sites of the Rome globe (especially handy for children - or anyone who knows little of Rome).
Now -- tell me what was the bestest and most Catholic(est!) Christmas pressie in your house: A pair of Bl. Cardinal Newman socks? A Leo XIII tie? A St Peter space-hopper? A Hilaire Belloc wine rack?
