  • Join a guide to explore the creepy underground catacombs once used for the burial and commemoration of the dead
  • Learn about excavations, and the complex system of tunnels and cubicles structured on different floors
  • Discover the richly decorated rooms that have housed the tombs of the martyrs and attracted the devotion of many pilgrims

Once a quarry, The Catacomb of Priscilla is an archaeological site with a storied past, on the Via Salaria in Rome. Used for Christian burials from the 3rd to the 5th century AD it would probably tell quite a story or two, if walls could talk.

Join your expert tour guide for an underground adventure through history as you discover the amazing maze of an ex underground cemetery excavated by the Christians of Rome. Learn about the horrific persecution of Christians by Roman emperors, wind through tunnels, squint your eyes in darkened chambers and discover which martyrs were buried and commemorated here.
