What to expect

Discover the underground buildings and crypts of ancient Rome. You'll embark on a fascinating tour of the archeological layers that lay beneath the city and you'll have the chance to explore several burial chambers and various pagan sites, formerly used as burial grounds since it was forbidden to bury or cremate corpses in the city. In the course of your experience, you'll also get to explore some of the oldest and longest underground tunnels in the world. Depending on the chosen day you'll either be taken to Domitilla’s or Saint Sebastian’s or Priscilla’s Catacombs.
