A pilgrim’s guide, now known as The Einsiedeln Itineraries, to the mainly Christian sights of the Rome still survives and is one of the earliest pilgrim guides ever written.

This guide will take you off the beaten track of the usual tourist sights of Rome, into the history and architecture of the eternal city.
