What to expect

Reach and visit the catacombs with an audio-guided shuttle bus ride. You can depart from the center of the city and reach the site, where you'll discover one of the largest catacombs in Rome and with its 17 km of tunnels and corridors divided into 4 different levels, for a total of 150,000 burials, and a semi-subterranean Basilica.

You'll get to know more about the life of Christian communities of the early centuries, all the while admiring their architectural testimony, untouched over the centuries: symbolic decorations of stone fragments and magnificent frescoes, a sign of the cult of the martyrs buried in this cemetery.
