Catacombs tour will be the journey through Christian Rome origins by visiting a sacred underground area.

We promise that this visit of the Catacombs  of San Calistus  will be an unforgettable spiritual experience.

Travel along the footsteps of Saint Peter and Paul  to the Catacombs, passing by the famous church of “Quo vadis?” on Appian way.

So let’s peek together at the inside of this uniting treasure of Christian archaeological heritage.

Finally we will enter to the catacombs with specialized guide. The first thing we’re going to encounter is a staircase, it can be up to 12 meters underground, and at the bottom of it are corridors that are forged in numerous directions. They are most commonly 3-4km long, and only so wide that two undertakers carrying coffins carrying the deceased could miss each other.

The graves of martyrs, as well as “arkolia”, were also depicted by the technique of the fresco. In the beginning, were simple compositions that later became cycles with scenes from the Old Testament and New Testament which look in front of our eyes like a miniature Gospel, and to this day they are very alive and impressive.

I’d like to give special attention to the third-century fresco on the wall of The Scriptures of St. Cecilia in the catacombs of San Calisto, where it was shown for the first time “ Christ the Pantocrator”

It is important to note that both pagan traditions and superstitions have found their place in early Christians, so items such as toys, coins, objects from the ivory, bells, silver and gold foils, and lamps, as well as dishes for food and drink. The deceased was buried necked after a ritual bath wrapped in a white canvas.

It will be unique oportunuty to learn about habits and traditions of the first christians. This tour will offer  You a perspective of the Christian Rome  that you won’t experience in the city center.
