The Hidden World of Rome's Catacombs

So, you're in Rome, and you've seen the Colosseum, tossed a coin into the Trevi Fountain, and had loads of pizza and gelato. What's next? How about a unique experience in the Roman catacombs? These underground burial sites are built in a confusing maze type structure, stretching for miles below the city. What makes them extra special are their ancient artwork and hidden chapels, which most tourists never get to see. Make sure to book early, though, because people are starting to realize how amazing they are.

What to Expect on a Catacombs of Rome Tour

You're probably wondering what a catacombs tour in Rome is really like, right? Before we fill you in, make sure you get your discounted Rome catacombs tickets through Go City ahead of time. Tours often sell out, especially during the busy summer months. Once you're in, it's like stepping back in time. You'll wander through narrow tunnels, lit only by the guide's flashlight. Along the way, you'll see ancient tombs, mosaics, and maybe even some inscriptions in Latin! It's a fascinating way to learn about Rome's history from a completely different angle.

As part of this tour, you’ll be taken in an environmentally friendly methane bus to one of two Roman Catacombs. On every day other than Wednesday, you’ll visit the Catacombs of St. Callixtus, the largest of Rome’s catacombs that is the burial place of many important religious figures. If you take the tour on a Wednesday, you’ll visit the catacombs of St. Domitilla, Rome’s oldest catacomb, famous for its many ornate frescoes. 

On your visit, you’ll watch a 20-minute informative video before being shuttled the Catacombs. You will then head underground for a 45-minute guided tour. Your guide will give you plenty of information about the Christian communities that lived in Rome during the early Millenia, offering a fascinating insight into the faith of early Christians and their belief in the afterlife. Both catacombs are filled with incredible frescoes and art, that contrast interestingly with the other eerie sights you will discover...
