The Catacombs of Rome with tour guide and actors. Exclusive access after closing.
Are you ready for an astonishing and mysterious journey back in time?
Descending into the bowels of the earth, this tour takes you back to the early Christian period, visiting the tuff rock galleries of Priscilla’s Catacombs—the largest in Rome.
The Catacombs remain open exclusively for our group during closing time or after normal opening hours. Our licensed guide retraces the history of the catacombs and seven professional actors, in period costume, introduce you to men and women from the past. These recount their own stories and accompany you back into the past, allowing you to relive intense and exciting moments in ancient history.
Step back in time! Listen to the voices of the ancient people and meet a worker who dug kilometres of tunnels, two siblings who reunite after their martyrdom, the famous Velata, veiled woman, Priscilla in person, then cross paths with two Roman legionnaires, witnessing one of them converting to a new faith.
