Overview

700 km of mysteries and secrets

Are you down for an adventure? Underground Rome - a terrifying labyrinth where nothing is expected or reasonable. The tomb of a saint, a lake, a church, an ossuary, or a skeleton warning you "What you are, I was; what I am, you will be. ”It’s a kingdom of shadows where you never know what to expect. They were lost and reappeared 3 days and 3 nights later, not in Rome but in Anzio, 30 km away. They speak of 700 km of exploded labyrinths, but they believe to be many thousands more, an immense multi-leveled spider's web spreading under Rome and the surrounding areas.

Almost every recent church in Rome has a secret underground level, not as deep as the catacombs, but often more fascinating. If united together, they would create a city, another world full of secrets and mysteries of underground churches, perilous stairs, ruined walls, and the smell of saints and bones.
