Pope Francis visits the excavated necropolis below St. Peter's Basilica April 1. The necropolis is where St. Peter's tomb has been venerated since early Christian times and where the first church dedicated to him was built. The tomb is two levels below the main altar of the basilica. (CNS/L'Osservatore Romano via Reuters)

The last time I was in Vatican City, I took the "Scavi Tour
." It was very interesting. After touring the necropolis, we went into the grotto level and saw the tombs of various Popes including St. Peter.
