You can choose which Catacombs you prefer to visit among the following:

Catacombs of San Callixtus:
The Crypt of the Popes, or the Catacombs of Callixtus, were built after AD 150. It takes its name from the deacon Saint Callixtus, proposed by Pope Zephyrinus in the administration of the same cemetery - on his accession as pope, he enlarged the complex, andsoon it became the official one for the Roman Church. The arcades, where more than fifty martyrs and sixteen pontiffs were buried, form part of a complex graveyard that occupies 15 hectares and is around 12 miles (20 km) long.

Catacombs of St. Sebastian:
One of the smallest Christian cemeteries, the Catacombs of San Sebastiano have always been some of the most accessible catacombs and are thus some of the least preserved (of the four original floors, the first is almost completely gone). On the left end of the right hand wall of the nave of the primitive basilica(rebuilt in 1933 on ancient remains), arches to end the middle of the nave of the actual 13th-century church are visible, along with the outside of the apse of the Chapel of the Relics; whole and fragmentary collected sarcophagi (mostly dating from the 4th century) were found in excavations.

Catacombs of St. Domitilla:
These are the oldest of Rome's underground burial networks, and the only ones to still contain bones. They are also the best preserved and one of the most extensive of all the Catacombs. Included in their passages are a 2nd-century fresco of the Last Supper and other valuable artifacts. There are around 4,000,000 bodies buried in St. Domitilla. They are the only catacombs that have a subterranean basilica.

Once you get to the Catacombs you'll start your visit inside with a small-group tour in your preferred language given by the Catacombs staff (available in English, French, German and Spanish).

After the Catacombs visit, with your licensed guide, you to will see:
-Ancient Appian Way
- Cecilia metella Mausoleum (from ouside)

At the end of the tour your driver will take you back to your accommodation in Rome.
