Let yourself be guided through the discovery of Rome’s fascinating underground tunnels that have remained secret for years, where silence reigns supreme and time seems to have been unchanged for 2000 years. I
n the city of Rome, outside the ancient walls beneath the modern metropolis, there are about 40 catacombs dug into the ground that wind over more than 150 km. These tunnels are subdivided among various complexes located in different areas of the capital.
The catacombs are the real underground cemeteries built about 2000 years ago per the Pope’s orders. The Pope wanted to create a safe area to guard the bodies and stories of those who formed the local community.
Our qualified guide will take you around Rome accompanying you to some of the most representative and suggestive underground tunnels of the city, so you can see the remains of ancient history up close.
The day will begin with the visit of Basilicas of Santa Maria Maggiore and San Giovanni in Laterano, followed by a visit to the nearby Scala Santa and finally to the Via Appia and the catacombs. You will go on a journey to discover skulls, fragments of finds, frescoes, graffiti of ancient prayers, and mosaics.
Walking down the stairs that descend into these galleries you will immerse yourself in the dark and silent gorges lit only by some torches, giving you the sensation of traveling back in time.
You will have the opportunity to enjoy a unique and exciting experience, far from the classic itineraries of visits, to discover a still unknown Rome.
