Thanks to the Catacombs Rome Tour you will see the ancient catacombs that follow the ‘Appia Antica’ outside the city walls. The catacombs first served the purpose of allowing early Christians to bury their dead, a once illegal act within the Eternal City itself.
Even before entering St. Callixtus catacomb, the largest in the area, Catacombs Rome Tour will take you walk physically on the history through a walk on the Old Appian Way. This still in-use road dates back to 312 BC as a connector between Rome and the empire’s southern ports.
The Catacombs Rome Tour will allow you to Take in the fresh air and untouched nature before venturing below ground.
Our multi-lingual tour guides will lead you through the maze of history where the tombs are only recognizable by the uniquely patterned shells and adornments distinguish one from another. Gaze upon statues such as Stefano Maderno’s sleeping Saint Cecilia who holds some secrets of her own. The walls are lined with old Latin and Greek symbols and writing just waiting to be decoded with the help of your guide.
