Tour description

A visit to the mistic Appia Antica, the oldest and most legendary road leading to Rome. A drive along via Appia is a picturesque treat and perhaps the only place in Rome still similar in appearance 2000 years later.

Along the Appian Way you are able to see many traces of Ancient Rome’s glory: from the ruins of the Circus of Maxentius and the tomb of Cecilia Metella. The beautiful road is lined with pine trees, large green pastures, ancient monuments and catacombs, one of which the tour visits.

Catacombs were early Christian cemeteries in Ancient Rome. The bodies are long gone, but the catacombs make for a fascinating visit and help us to understand the importance of Christianity in Ancient Rome. Some are heavily decorated while others are plain, an indication of the hierarchy of the catacombs. Pleasingly the catacombs are always a hit with children as the underground tunnels hold a particular allure for children.

The Catacombs & the Appian Way Tour needs to be arranged with a private driver.
