Unique Tours Rome
Rome Catacomb Exclusive Access: with Underground Roman Christian Houses
Exclusive alone in a catacomb not open to public
We are thrilled to offer an incredibly exclusive experience in which you have the chance to enter the Catacombs of Praetextatus entirely on your own with your guide and no other visitors present.
Roma Experience has been granted exclusive access to this site that no other tour operators have and the result is unlike any other. On this tour you’ll have the chance to visit Ancient Roman houses as well as one of the most unvisted catacombs in Rome.
The underground labyrinthine spaces of the catacombs are where Christians buried their dead at a time when it wasn’t even legal to profess the faith. While the catacombs were popular medieval pilgrimage sites, they were eventually forgotten for centuries meaning many of the ancient frescoes remained untouched and undamaged. In the oldest part of the catacombs you’ll see a rare early image of Christ being crowned with thorns as well as the resurrection of Lazarus – all details that celebrated the numerous Christian martyrs who were entombed here.
This catacombs of Rome tour is completed by a visit to underground Ancient Roman houses that have been preserved beneath the floors of a church on Ceaelian Hill. Ancient apartments, storerooms, roads, and even a frescoed courtyard are accompanied by a shrine to Christians martyred here in the 4th century. Both of these Rome underground sites offer a unique opportunity to walk through ancient spaces that have remained largely untouched by the passage of time and the growth of the modern city.
