Hidden deep underground on the outskirts of Rome, the vast 2nd-century Catacombs of Rome (Catacombe di Roma) are some of the oldest burial tunnels in the world. Today, the narrow tunnels are eerily quiet and full of Roman history, including some of the best-preserved early Christian frescoes and sculptures—including the oldest known depiction of the Virgin Mary and, in the bone-adorned Capuchin Crypt, a Caravaggio.

This is a wonderful introduction to some underground sites in Rome where we will go back 2,000 years and physically walk through layers of time in Rome Catacombs! We begin with the hidden gem Basilica of San Clemente. We will start on the ‘modern’ level in a church dating back to the 12th Century. After admiring the beautifully decorated church and marble clad floor we descend into the past. The lower levels of the church take us back in time to a much earlier, larger church from the 4th century. Beneath this lies a 1st century Roman house, later converted into a temple. Our next stop is the Rome Catacombs outside of the ancient city walls, we will take private transport to one of the oldest and largest catacomb complexes on the Via Appia. We will explore several parts of the catacombs learning about death in ancient Rome and see crypts with pagan and Christian decorative themes including the tomb of Diogenes, a grave digger who created the endless corridors of graves.
