    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Your exclusive small group tour begins at the beautifully preserved Basilica of San Clemente where you will descend over five stories underground. Learn about Medieval popes and secret Pagan rituals admiring artistic masterpieces from the 2nd century AD until the 15th century AD. Explore mysterious religions and even discover fresh water sources that lie deep in the earth! A taxi will then take your small group to one of the most well-known graveyards in Italy. Descend this ancient Christian burial ground and explore the narrow tunnels filled with empty graves – an ongoing point of fascination for historians. At the end of the tour a taxi will bring you back to the center of Rome.

Did this today with our guide Andrea, he was so full of enthusiasm and knowledge it was an absolute treat. He and the other guide Sean both provided a great understand of pre roman, roman and Christian culture. This is my sixth time in Rome and my first time on an organised tour

Seeing the Catacombs and hearing the story about how they came about was eye opening. Melanie was our guide and her passion and knowledge really made this tour even better. Livitaly caps the groups at six guests, makes a huge difference!

We loved hearing the details she shared about the time period. She made it come alive and we could easily picture how the catacombs were developed and what it would have been like to visit the tombs back then. I would highly recommend a tour with Melanie.

Thank you so much for writing such a nice review regarding Melanie's tour of the ancient catacombs and underground Rome. There is so much to learn about ancient Rome and so much of it is underground. Just the same, not everyone has the time to visit the catacombs or see some of what is under this city so we greatly appreciate your recommendation both of this tour and of our Melanie. Many thanks, once again Angelo and Kristin

My wife and I were lucky enough to be the only two people on this tour. We met Melanie at the basilica, and we immediately knew she was going to be a great tour guide. She was very warm and casual. The tour of Basilica San Clemente was fascinating “history lasagna”. The

Oh Wow! We'll make sure to let Melanie know you have given her 11 stars for her tour of Underground Rome and the Catacombs. You will have made her day!! We thank you for your wonderful review. We're so happy that you enjoyed this special tour. Not too many people have the time to visit the catacombs but, as you pointed out, they are unique and fascinating, as is all of underground Rome. San Clemente is such a great example (and we love your description) of the layers and layers of history ("history lasagna"). Thanks once again for the great review. Angelo and Kristin

Yes, the San Clemente Basilica is one-of-a-kind. We're so happy you enjoyed visiting it, and the catacombs, with Melanie. She's a wonderful guide and knows just how to share her knowledge and passion for ancient Rome history. We'll let her know how much you appreciated her efforts. Thank you for writing Angelo and Kristin
