Museum and Crypt of Capuchins

Catacombe di Santa Domitilla
The Christian Catacombs of Domitilla are an elaborate underground maze of tunnels that offer a rare glimpse into early Christianity in Rome. Hidden deep underground and located about 15 minutes outside of Rome, these catacombs were created in response to the shortage of burial plots in Rome’s city center during the second century. The Domitilla Catacombs contain thousands of burial plots, where the remains of Ancient Romans were once located.
Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At:  
Via Appia Antica
Emperor Aurelian built a wall around Rome during the third century in order to protect the city from barbarian invaders. We’ll take you to the Aurelian Walls in our climate-controlled vehicle to see them up close. You’ll walk along a small stretch of the Ancient Appian Way, one of the most important Ancient Roman roads leading all the way to Southern Italy. The Ancient Appian Way is also where 10,000 slaves were crucified during the revolt of Spartacus.
