Starting, with a small group, from our travel agency, near the Colosseum, you will be comfortably transported on an air-conditioned vehicle, in one of the most interesting and visited places in Rome, the "catacombs" on the Via Appia Antica.
With this tour, we will guide you through time to discover a hidden and parallel world in which, for centuries, Jews and Christians have looked after and adored their dead.
Pass by the majestic Aurelian Walls, and come to the archaeological area of the Via Appia Antica. Here, immersed in the green Roman countryside, you will descend into the ancient world of the Catacombs, a complex network of underground tunnels among the longest in the world, occupying an area of about fifteen hectares for about 60 kilometers of tunnels on several levels. The catacombs included in the visit (San Calisto, San Sebastiano, or Santa Domitilla), change depending on the day. Either way, you will have the opportunity to discover a significant place that still today, after about 2000 years, is still used to celebrate religious rites. Along your visit path, you can marvel at ancient frescoes, crypts rich in inscriptions carved in the walls, niches with remains of skeletons, small mausoleums, sarcophagi, tombs, and small chapels.
Here you will even find the burial of famous people like popes, martyrs and, according to legends, even some apostles.
After the tour, back in the sunlight, your driver will take you back to the original starting point in Via Della Polveriera.
