Know More about this tour

Combining coach or minivan travel with on-foot exploration, your morning guided tour departs from central Rome and takes you beyond the city walls and out along the rustic Appian Way one of the earliest and most strategically significant roads of Romes ancient republic.

Stop first for a walk with your guide through the countryside near the southern edge of ancient Rome. Admire the attractive Italian scenery outside the city and perhaps take time to capture the landscape through the lens of your camera.

Continue on to Romes ancient Catacombs of San Callisto or San Sebastiano. The Catacombs of San Callisto were built in the 2nd century and named after the deacon Saint Callixtus, while San Sebastiano is a small Christian cemetery and one of Romes most accessible catacombs. Explore the underground tunnels with your guide, hear of their history and gain insight into the burial techniques prevalent those centuries ago.

Leaving the Catacombs behind and travel onward to admire Romes remaining aqueducts. The Romans were masters of engineering and the aqueducts still standing today are testament to their skills. Listen as your guide explains how and why the aqueducts were built here and marvel at the amazing feat of engineering they represent.

After three hours exploring the Catacombs and countryside along Romes ancient Appian Way, return to your original departure point to conclude your tour.
