Description

Meet your guide in front of the Santi Cosma and Damiano Basilica to begin your tour. Relax in comfort aboard an air-conditioned van, chauffeured by an English-speaking driver who will provide commentary along the scenic route to your destination. Step into the sacred grounds of Rome's official cemetery, dating back to the 3rd century AD. This hallowed site, overseen by the deacon St. Callixtus under Pope Zephyrinus, served as the final resting place for countless Christians, including martyrs and 16 esteemed popes. Delve into the subterranean depths of history as you venture into the Roman Catacombs. Discover a labyrinthine network that served as both a burial ground and sanctuary for early Christians. Led by your guide, wander through winding tunnels and chambers adorned with ancient frescoes and inscriptions, bearing testament to the enduring faith of bygone eras. Engage with your guide and companions as you unravel the mysteries of Rome's Christian legacy.
