Congratulations, you have found the most complete Catacomb tour in Rome! We will meet in front of Domitilla Catacomb, where I will share with you all my knowledge and passion about these amazing structures and the history about how a religion and a new culture formed there, then we will descend into its whomb passing through the underground Basilica dedicated to the Martyrs Nereus and Achilleus, visiting underground chambers decorated almost 2000 years ago and maze-like tunnels. Once back to ground level, we will enjoy a 10 minutes walk towards the Catacomb of Callixtus, another early Christian burial place, the official one used by the ancient popes from the 2nd to the 4th century, with Early Christian representations and legends related to Saint Cecilia.
I am an Italian-American born and bred in Rome, where since a very young age I nurtured my passion for history, ancient mythology and languages often travelling through cities and tropical jungles around the world. Experienced actor and storyteller, I will lead you off the beaten track, through hidden chambers, underground forgotten tunnels, pagan temples and christian churches, all of it nestled right underneath the busy and cluttered Roman streets.
We will meet in front of Domitilla Catacomb, visit its underground tunnels and then walk for 10 minutes to get to Callixtus Catacombs. We will spend approximately 40 minutes in each Catacomb and 10 to walk from one to the other.
Tickets not included, they will be purchased on site: Domitilla Catacombs € 8 (€5 children under 16; free under 5) Callixtus Catacombs € 8 (€5 children under 16; free under 5)
