If you're a music lover, many of the Roman churches have sacred music events. They're usually free and feature classical music from Brahms, Bach, Schubert and more.
For the religious, the Good Friday Mass is very special. Mass with the Pope at St. Peter’s Basilica starts at 5pm. The “Way of the Cross,” or Via Crucis, starts at the Colosseum at 9:15pm. The Pope leads the candlelit procession, as it heads up the Palatine hill, stopping 14 times along the way to reflect on Christ’s journey to the cross.
