Catacombs Underground Exclusive Guided Tour, Ticket and Transfer
Enjoy an in-depth experience in one of the most exciting and visited places in Rome, the Catacombs on the Ancient Appian Way. Immersed in the green Roman countryside, you'll descend into a complex network of underground tunnels, among the longest in the world, spread over an area of about 15 hectares, for about 60 km of tunnels on several levels. The catacombs that we'll visit (San Calisto, San Sebastiano, or Santa Domitilla) will change depending on the day. Wherever we start, you'll have the chance to see ancient frescoes, crypts rich in inscriptions carved in the walls, niches with remains of skeletons, small mausoleums, sarcophagi, tombs, and small chapels, that even after about 2000 years, are still used to celebrate religious rites. Here you'll 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 starting point.
