What to expect?

This underground tour of the Catacombs takes you deeper into the unusual history of Rome, far below its busy streets and towering monuments to the concealed side of this ancient city.
The tour begins at one of the most spectacular centrally located squares in Rome: Venice Square, next to the Town hall. A VIP minibus fully equipped with air conditioning will take you to the ancient Roman catacombs. The staff will provide an App City audio guide that will introduce the venue and the old road of Via Appia.

Located just outside of the city and hidden deep underground, the catacombs were created in the second century in response to a shortage of land for deceased’s remains. Dating back almost 2,000 years to the 2nd century AD, this extensive network of tunnels snaking underground was once both a burial ground and a place of worship for the first Christians in Rome. With an expert guide you’ll explore these extensive tunnels lined with tombs carved right out of the rock, and hear the fascinating history of these sacred places.

Due to the very limited access to the catacombs, you should make your booking in advance - especially around Easter and between May and September, when Rome swarms with travellers. The cool catacombs make for a great break from Italy’s summer heat.
