The Rome Catacombs Tour lets you visit the world’s largest underground burial channels which are a testament to the world’s largest ancient Christian community. Have our guides unlock the mystery of ancient Pagan and Christian symbolism and religious ceremonies as you venture to explore underground Rome with its Roman catacombs, crypts and archaeological sites.
We begin our journey by descending into the excavations of the Basilica of San Clemente / St Clement. This titular 12th century basilica is built over an earlier 4th century basilica which in turn is built on the site of the 1st century Christian house church of none other than the Jewish Christian convert and 4th bishop of Rome, Pope Saint Clement (pope from 88-99 AD).
Then retire into the comfort of an air conditioned minivan as we make our way down the most famous of ancient roads the Appian Way to the underground0 Catacombs of Domatilla or the Catacombs of St Callixtus. We explore the twisting tunnels in an Underground Rome Tour visiting the countless crypts of the first Christians living in Rome.
