Dating back to the 2nd century, the Catacombs are galleries that were used by the Romans to bury the dead. These ancient cemeteries carry a unique history that you can dive into with your expert guide. St. Callixtus Catacomb is the largest burial site in the Roman Catacombs and was rediscovered in 1854 by an Italian archaeologist.

As you walk around, learn everything about its myths, legends, and history from your tour guide. Find fascinating art in the sacred site like frescoes, inscriptions, and sarcophagi.
