What You'll Do
  • Enjoy the unique experience of wandering the subterranean catacomb tunnels
  • Visit the hidden side of Rome and explore its mysteries
  • Walk along the Appian Way, one of the most important Roman roads, still perfectly preserved for miles
Explore Rome's catacombs, and discover the cradle of Christianity. Wander through the underground cemeteries where the early Christians were buried during the years of the persecution, and walk the most important Roman road, the Appian Way.
What to Expect
Visit one of Rome's famous catacombs. In these amazing underground labyrinths you will see Christian, Jewish and Pagan tombs, and learn about life, death and the spread of Christianity in the ancient world.

Next, the tour will move to the the most famous ancient road: the Appian Way. Over 5000 gladiators and slaves were crucified after the leader of their uprising – Spartacus – was defeated here by Crassus and the Roman army. On this same road, St. Peter, trying to escape death during the Christian persecution under the Emperor Nero, is said to have met Jesus Christ, who gave him the courage to face his destiny as a martyr. A church, Domine Quo Vadis, still stands in celebration of this meeting.

During your tour you will also see the villa of Maxentius (the Roman emperor defeated by Constantine in 312 A.D.) and the mausoleum of Caecilia Metella, the daughter-in-law of the infamous senator and general, Crassus, an important member of Julius Caesar's cohort.
